Everyone wants to trade Austin, the one who played with broken ribs, and Lord only knows what eles. Why not drop or trade the one who if you count all the years he has been in the league, would not equal one year. Might be wrong on that. And trade Pollard. Then you would be below the tax level.
because Austin makes $2 million more than Bender, and $3 million more than Pollard?
That's roughly a $4-6 million difference when the luxury tax hit comes. Austin's more reliable, but his reliability isnt worth 4-6 million to keep around.
Also, it's pretty safe to say that no team in the NBA would take Pollard off your hands. Perhaps as an expiring deal, but you'd have to take a long-term salary in return, and the Simons aren't going to sign off on that.
Personally, as a Pistons fan, I hope you're right. Keeping Croshere and waiving pollard or Bender just makes it that much more likely that you won't re-sign Davis and JJ.
It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004
It's because Bender's more tradable and Pollard comes off the books after this year.
We need to waive Austin, trade Bender, and let Pollard's contract run out. That will go a long way in fixing our cap woes.
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Cro makes the most, so that is reason #1
Pollard is an ending contract, reason #2 to go with Cro and #1 against Polly
Bender can pen out (yeah yeah) and contribute albeit in a trade, OR can not be fit enough before the season starts and under the new CBA be "written off" on the permanently injured lost (instant cap-relief, PLUS an excemption for the contract amount to sign a new player) reason #3
there ya have it
So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.
