Ok no more A.I. talk. Maggette probably wont happen. So who are some under-the-radar players you'd like to see in Indiana? Looking back at our recent history, our best moves have been stealing under utilized youngsters from other teams and turning them into stars. We stole Jalen Rose from Denver and he was arguably our best player from 98-2000, including the Finals team. We stole JO from Portland, he is of course our franchise player. And we practically stole Artest and Brad Miller from Chicago once Jalen Rose became overpaid and a bit of a *****. I thought Marquis could've been next in line, but stubborn Carlisle doesnt play him nearly enough, so I guess not. So who are some players around the league who you think could be the next dud-to-stud for the Pacers to steal away and help lead us to our next period of greatness?
My 3 choices.....
Rashad McCants, SG, Wolves - This guy had a really good rookie season. He allegedly had a questionable attitude coming into the league, but he can ball so thats all I care about. He had surgery in the offseason but should be back within weeks according to ESPN.com. He could be our SG of the present and the future, but I doubt Minnesota is in any hurry to trade him.
Sean May, PF, Bobcats - Really good big man. Nice scorer with a soft touch and a hell of a rebounder. He's better than Brad Miller and a hell of a lot younger, not to mention he's not massively overpaid like Brad. I don't know if Charlotte is willing to let him go, but he'd be a nice sidekick for JO.
Sebastian Telfair, PG, Celtics - Boston has approx. 400 point guards, so you'd figure one or two would be movable. Telfair hasn't done much thus far, but he's still extremely young with some nice upside. He'd be a gamble, but then again so was JO, and he turned out ok.
