We were discussing free agents in another thread and Harpring was mentioned. The more I think about it, the more I think he would make a really good Pacer...but I think he'd ask too much money as a free agent. Thr question is if we could convince him that we are a contender. The guy is extremely smart on and off the court and could be a lockeroom leader.
So, just being silly, based upon our discussion in the free agents thread, what would you think of this scenario?
Providing Peja doesn't break the bank, we're able to lure Harpring on board.
Would you do the following trade as a "major move" that Bird was talking about:
Tinsley and Jackson
Andre Miller and Nene Hilario (sign and trade)
(Denver could use an impact swingman and have been looking for years. I could see Karl liking Jamaal. The injurie issues may kinda cancel themselves out.)
Now, I admit I'm being silly. I don't neccesarily see Denver giving up Miller, but then again, maybe they'd balance that aginst getting a solid SG, something they've been looking for and bank on Tinsley having the summer to get all healed up.
Okay, there's my goofy, but plausible trade scenario to make this team bettr. Whatdoyathink?
