Some quick odd thoughts about beating Detroit.... - Page 2
I'm not sure were too deep but I totally agree with the premise. I'd like to see us trade a couple of "C" players for a couple of "B" players. After you get past the first 6/7 guys the talent level drops significantly. I know many will disagree with the players I'm about to name but it's the idea I ask you to consider.
Maybe Runi for Damon Stoudamire. The salaries match. This is his 12th year in the league and he's lost some of his athletic ability. He doesn't have trouble with pressure defense. He has about 50 games of playoff experience. He's shot 36% from beyond the arc in his career. He distributes the ball well. He's a solid vet who at 33 won't have a problem coming off the bench for the Pacers.
Maybe Daniels and Harrison for Corey Maggette. He doesn't have much of a three but he rebounds the ball well and is a proven scorer who could be a real threat off the bench behind Jack. He gets to the line.
Maybe Baston and Powell/Marshall for Lorenzen Wright. He's only one year older than Maceo but is entering his 11th season. He's a solid rebounder at over 10 per 48 and over 7 offensive per 48.
+3 free agent pickups
We'd still have young guys like Granger , Williams, & Greene for the future. Not to mention our starters are really in the prime of their careers right now. We'd have some solid vets coming off the bench.
All interesting proposals. Marquis is so tough. I think he'd garner interest. At the same time I want to believe he could still break out at some point-perhaps like he did with Dallas in his starting stint. But there's been absolutely no sign. Add in the obvious lack of playing time and well...
I like Mighty Mouse a lot, but as a bench player is he that much better than Sarunas? Would be good if Tins went down though as a plug in. Magette I like as well, but the difficulties. Would he accept backing up Jack? Is he better? Would it allow us to more easily disassociate if he has more flare ups? I'm not predicting he will. Would Jack go back to the bench?
Re: Some quick odd thoughts about beating Detroit....
I believe Sarunas is too valuable to the offensive movement and overall
TEAM PLAY to trade away. He and Tinsley are really starting to develope
something special. No way to that trade.
Marquis and Harrison for Magette maybe or maybe just Marquis.
It is always nice to have an additional big around who can contribute
better than some of the bigmen the Pacers have had in the past at the
end of the bench. Dreiling,Stuart Gray, etc
