    Default Is this the end of Danny's minutes?

    You guys think Peja's in the long-term plan, or are we hoping to S&T him and get some pieces back?

    I'm worried that our promising rookie just got shoved to the bench. Unless, of course, Peja gets injured.
    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.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I guess it all depends on how Peja performs for the second 1/2 of the season. The nice thing is that we've got options at the end of the season: resign, sing-and-trade, let him walk.

    At least now we've got a player who will be measured by his basketball playing alone, and not by all of the off-court antics.

    If anything Danny just became more important to this team. He'll end up being the 6th starter - kinda like Al was when he was here.

    Any 2, or 3 we got would have put Granger back on the bench. I'm really fine with that. I don't want Granger, or Harrison starting just so they can develop. Let Granger earn his minutes, and take his time developing.

    Well, he's certainly going to see less, not only due to Peja, but also since he was already showing signs of Rookie-Wall Syndrome. I still think he'll get 15-20 minutes per, which is adequate.

    I'm just happy that this should be the end of the small-ball bull****. I swear, the next time I see Eddie Gill playing SF I'm gonna hit somebody.

    Danny's a monster on the boards and he's tough defensively ... I think he'll have his minutes intact.

    I hope not. Danger has been playing with a lot of hustle again! 12 points 11 rebounds last night, he is going to stay solid contributor off the bench on both ends of the floor.

    6th man: Danger. Fred. Runi. I'd be okay with either one!

    Danny should be fine he can play positions 2-4... so they'll be minuets there for him...

    and Peja can play 2-3 so who says Peja and Danny couldn't play together? Danny would just guard the better Offensive wing player on D...

    My money is on S&T of Peja by the 2006-2007 trade deadline unless we are dominating the East like we did in the 2003-2004 season.
