Lets keep this team the same!

The players you mentioned were all bench players. What are you hoping for exactly? Are you hoping that we trade our garbage for players that are going to make a huge difference?
Judging by your post, you DO want to keep things the same. When a fan says they "want to keep this team the same", they mean they want to keep the core together. They want JO, Ron, Jeff, Jax, and Tins. If those 5 players are here next year, that's "keeping the team the same." EVERY NBA team is going to make a couple of tweaks. No team goes into a season with the IDENTICAL roster they had the prior season.
The players you're fine with are all our best players. We aren't going shake anything up and get a big chance by offering teams a package of Johnson/Croshere/Bender.
The funniest thing is when a fan wants to shake things up and get positive results, but wants to only offer the Pacers worst players. You're saying, "I'm willing to make some changes, but I dont want to give up Jermiane, Ron, Jeff, Tins, or Jax"
Anthony Johnson is a fine backup point. Hell, he was a fine starting pg when Tinsley was out. Sure, Anthony's niche is the backup, but you can't have both him and Tinsley starting.
That's because I was talking about the people I hate. I'd trade Jackson, but I don't hate him. I actually hate nobody. Infact, I love everyone.
The people I put under my "nasty" section are players who I feel aren't in with this team or I don't like their games to well.
