    Default Primoz Brezec is a PISTON!

    Just off the wire...

    Nazr Mohammed was just traded to Charlotte for Primoz and Walter Hermann.

    Not sure what Primoz's health is like, but I really like him as a backup center. Hermann is a wild card, but I love his outside shot.

    Both should be solid pickups for the Pistons

    Pistons radio flagship just broke it. Expect to see it on ESPN soon.

    Yeah I would dislike Dumars even more if he pulled this off..... his good GM abilities are annoying.

    the best part is, we now have $10 million in expiring deals...a little more than we had in 2004 when Dumars pulled off the trade for Sheed.

    I'd trade Murph for Primoz straight up and be on Cloud 9 for a week.

    And that was before tonight's game.
    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'd do that in a heartbeat. Unfortunatley Murphy makes 3.5 times what Promoz does.
    The only way we lose Murphy is to send a young prospect with him like Shawne or Granger.
    I think the Pacers should consider buying him out at the end of the season.

    Pretty nice for the Pistons.

    Both are real solid. Brezec will help the Pistons spread the court even more.

    Not sure if he ever really improved his defense. But Brezec can really hit the mid range jumper. I remember thinking after we lost Brad and Brezec sort of breaking out his first two years with the Bobcats that man would Brezec be perfect offensive complament to Jermaine right about now. But we had to leave so many players open to the Bobcats to take and Primoz was one that we really couldn't protect.

    probably going to be a contest between Hermann and Brezec, with the loser getting dealt at the deadline along with Flip Murray..

    Primoz has range but Hermann has a lot more. He's going to have to show more if he wants to stick.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    You might grab your AK-47 if you go to Cloud 9.

    Pistons won that trade IMO pretty easily...good backup players on a good team IMO.

    BTW, the first thing when I heard this is...they must miss Darko...lol.

    Why teams just basically bend over for teams like the Pistons and the Yankees and the Patriots is beyond me.

    I don't see this as a big deal, personally. Primoz's best days are behind him.

    Is he an upgrade over Nazr? I'm not sure. At this point, they may be a wash.

    Hermann will be the key to the deal.

    Suicide watch for Kegboy.

    I gotta say, I was laughing watching the Raptors game tonight, thinking "Man, the Pistons could really use a player like Bosh."

    I don't even want to think about it.

    This may push him over the edge to truly not giving a rat's *** about anything in the NBA.

    I actually thought the Bobcats came out better on this deal. Nazr is a quality player that for some reason people sleep on him.

    Herrman is not bad though.

    I always wonder the same thing, it's the whole small market vs. big market, or in some cases "I really wish I could get a ring before I retire". I just don't understand how Detroit pulls off these deals and we can't do squat it isn't that big of a market nor is it a desirable environment to move in as opposed to if you were moving somewhere like California or Florida.

    contractually, yes brezec >>> nazr because i think they'll play/contribute about the same.
    This is the darkest timeline.
