    Default Pacers free agent analysis (Stoudamire?)

    Team-by-team free agent analysis from
    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...0403/507030433

    Pacers

    Restricted: John Edwards, James Jones

    Unrestricted: Austin Croshere (ETO), Dale Davis

    Comment: Pacers have interest in re-signing Jones and Davis but are hoping to land a veteran waived by a team looking to reduce luxury tax penalty or European guard Sarunas Jasikevicius. Damon Stoudamire also a possibility.





    Woo, Stoudamire? What do you guys think about him?
    It's the first time that I see his name linked with the Pacers.

    Mighty Mouse? That makes no sense.

    When it comes to waived vets I'd look hard at Ratliff if I were you guys.

    I like Stoudamire..Can score huge..But we need a good passing PG. I'd want Sarunas over Stouda myself.

    Maybe, but there still was an article about it a few days ago, that doesn't make it true, ok, but it's also not TOTALLY out of the question I think .

    yea...well it would appear that article was based on someones wishful thinking.....

    portland has come out and totally denied that possibility....which, i know, doesnt necessarily mean anything, but...

    finley and houston make sense....both teams are in luxury tax land...both have big contracts left and wont produce near their contract level....

    ratliff doesnt fit that bill, neither does portland....ratliff brings too much to the part to just be released....you factor in how hard it is to get a good center in this league and it just makes no sense....if they wanted to get rid of him, they could probably trade him very easily and get very good value in return....the same cannot be said for houston and finley, and u can throw brian grant in with them as well....

    I see Stoudamire on a Phil Jackson team where the point guard has to be a shooter. For us it doesn't work. He can rack up the assists once in a while but playing within the flow of the offense where he has to distribute the ball 90% of the time isn't one of his strengths.

    Hmmm... Phil likes tall point guards ... on the otherhand that Fisher chap was rather tiny aswell, so who knows.

    And Foretaz, I think you are right about Ratliff it doesn't sound logical, but I don't know ... one could hope .

    We don't need a marijuana smoking locker room disturbing old point guard coming in here and stirring up more trouble than we already had this year. LB and DW need to take a vacation until September.

    I think this team does best when the point guard hits some shots. I also think the P's need some shooters.

    If we continue with our inside-out game, our point guard must be able to feed the post, create a little something to set someone else up, and, above all, he must be able to hit the open shot. Otherwise, defenses are allowed to pack into the middle and double and triple team JO.

    I remember Larry saying at the end of the season that he wants the offense to be more open and exciting. That means the whole inside out thing might not be the case next season. If we become more of a running team, then it's going to be interesting to see what happens to AJ. In that type of offense you need a guy that can handle the ball much better than AJ can. I think this is why Jasikevicius' name keeps coming up.

    Good point and I hope true - about a more fan friendly offense. We still will need a point guard who can hit an open shot. Tinsley is iffy, Sarunas will make shots. I'd hedge my bets and do everything I could within reason to pair Tins with Sarunas.

    So what if he smokes marijuana. Do you honestly think our players don't? Majority of NBA players do.

    Saying that, Mighty Mouse would be an excellent addition to our team. Imagine him backing up Jamaal and covering Tinsley if he is hurt.

    All the other "he would be a lockerroom mess" is unfounded and has no basis on it. Big deal, he got caught for weed once.
