Thread: Do we need to make another move?

  1. #1

    Default Do we need to make another move?

    With JO out for pretty much the whole season does anyone feel we have to make another trade to get another big body in here? I sure as hell do but don't think we will get anything done.

    I like the rumor of Jackson/Johnson for Andre Miller but I hate the fact that we would have 3 big time point guards.

    I also like the other rumor of Freddie and Scot for George, Cook, and Mckie assuming that we won't keep Freddie. Althought I wouldn't mind seeing Mckie being replaced with Slava since Slava plays the 4 and is expiering.

    I also wouldn't mind see us making a strong run and either Chris Wilcox or Melvin Ely.

    I just think that we need to get us a big body to replace JO. Someone who can block some shots for us.

    Three, actually.

    Move #1: Tinley for Josh Childress.
    Move #2: Jax, AJ, and a pick for Andre Miller and Julius Hodge
    Move #3: Sign AD.

    Then we'd have:
    ..AD / Harrison / Pollard
    ..JO / Croshere / Foster
    ..Peja / Granger / Bender
    ..Fred / Childress / Hodge
    ..Andre / Saras / Gill

    Sounds good to me.
    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 could live with that I just wish it were that easy.

    Gimme Pietrus!

    Gimme AD!

    Miller could work now that we have Peja. (Gimme Andre! )
    You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?

    SF: With Peja and Granger, we are now well stocked at SF.
    PF: Cro or Granger can fill in for JO until he returns...so PF will be fine.
    SG: Just ok with Jax and Jones...but could use an upgrade.
    PG: Too many with Tins/Saras and AJ.
    C: Probably our weakest position. We have 2 injury prone, serviceable C's in Foster and Pollard. We have 1 foul prone C in Harrison. In a pinch, JO can play C. Some think JO is a C, but he is not. He is not physically solid enough to withstand the beating...as should now be obvious with his most recent injury.

    I think we should make two or more trades:

    1) Move Tinsley and Foster for a solid big man. Someone like Dale Davis who can block shots, rebound and provide a physical presence in the interior...and not foul. No doubt Tinsley and Foster are coveted players and are what it will take to bring good value.

    2) Move Pollard and Fred Jones for a promising backup SG, like Pietrus. Fred is looking to get paid and we will not be re-signing him IMO. If we have an opportunity to get an all-star calibre player, throw in Jax.
