Thread: Minnesota/Indiana Rumor from RATS

    Default Minnesota/Indiana Rumor from RATS

    Hey,

    I just saw over on the RATS board a rumor that was posted by "indy_dave00" (I think he also posts on here as diamond dave). He says:

    "I've heard a whisper of discussions between Larry Bird and Kevin McHale on a trade. Pacers would send Jamaal Tinsley and pick #17 to the T'Wolves for over paid combo guard Marko Jaric and pick #6.

    Both players signed 5 year deals last summer Jaric's is slightly less than Tinsley's. Not sure how close the deal is to occurring or if it will but it has been discussed."

    I hadn't seen any discussion of this yet and I know that he has been a reliable poster in the past. Just thought I would see what you guys thought of the idea.

    Wow that would be a great trade for us. I mentioned trading Tinsley for Jaric straight up before, but man getting the 6th pick too would be great.

    I love the number 6 pick but Jaric is not all that good to be honest. I think he could learn to take a back seat and try get other players involved better and to be honest Id rather have a playing Jaric then a injured Tinsley.

    I like Jamaal, and I don't even see why Minny would do this.

    If this trade goes down, there'd be no denying the fact that Indy's going to euroball style.

    Starting 5 (if I were Carlisle):
    PG: Saras (I hear nothing but great things about him at the 1, time Rick lets him show it)
    SG: Jax (if he's still here)/Roy (keeping my fingers crossed)
    SF: Peja
    PF: JO
    C: Foster

    Seriously, that could be a GREAT line-up.

    If DD00 posts this here, I'll consider it up for discussion.

    Unfortuantely, we have had a history of trouble makers who like to pose as "insiders" on other forums just to get a kick out of watching PD light up like a christmas tree.

    Can anyone confirm that Indy_Dave is actually DD00? If so, why has he only shared the info there and not here?

    I like it simply from the standpoint that we move up 11 spots in the draft. Anything we get from Jaric would be a bonus in my opinion because Tinsley's recent contributions add up to basically nothing.

    I'd be very surprised if the T-wolves gave this guy up. His stats are better than McCants and are nearly on par with Tinsley's. I see no clear cut advantage for the T-wolves in making this trade. It would, however, provide the Pacers with a stronger, healthier guard in the backcourt.

    This is not true. Larry, Donnie, and I stand behind Jamaal and believe he is our PG of the future.

    Don't forget guys, the Wolves drafted Bracey Wright and are turning him into a PG!

    Man, it would be so sweet if we could get Roy (or whoever falls because someone drafts him earlier)

    I like it for the fact that you can get a very good player at #6 but not at #17.

    I'm not sure that Jaric adds anything, but at least he can play the 2 so...


    if Jax happens to still be around and acts like an idiot, there would be an option other than going small with Fred (if he is back) or playing a PG at the 2, which sucks because we have no PGs who can defend 2 guards.

    This would be a good deal IMO even if Jaric never plays.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Jaric would be an albatross of sorts, but that #6 pick is tempting.

    I already posted my thoughts on that tread. No way the T'Wolves do this. If we had Jaric and the 6th, would you trade it for Tinsley and the 17th? I hate NBA forums in the summer.

    You've got to think that Minny would want at least the #17 pick in return.

    It's hard to judge Tinsley's value to the rest of the league. The injuries are a huge turnoff, but when he's on the guy is ON.

    Obviously, we'd do that trade in a heartbeat. But I can't see Minny doing it.
    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 like Jaric; I don't think LA or Minnesota have really used him the right way.

    I'm not a big fan of trading Tinsley, but I'd do this.

    I am an absolutely huge fan of trading Tinsley. And I would definitely do this.

    Jaric will probably never be the distributor Tinsley is, but he is a much better defender. He's also able to play both guard positions. The only weekness of this trade is that, unless Saras pans out, the Pacers will not have a decent half-court distributor available.

    I'll have to think about this - I might be okay with starting Jaric at PG and backing him up with Saras.

    We would need to match Jaric and Saras with a very, very good/ quick perimeter defender who could shoot a decent percentage and not turn the ball over. So none of our existing SGs (nor Granger, he's not quick enough) would qualify.

    But I'm on-record as being in favor of having six new guards next season anyway.

    I'd do it, too. Tinsley will most likely be sitting on the bench next year with his sinuses. We'd be kicking ourselves once again if we don't do this.
