    Default Free Agents Next Summer

    Next summer we are going to have a lot of expirers:

    Maceo Baston $2,272,860
    Marquis Daniels $6,864,200
    Jeff Foster $5,500,000
    Josh McRoberts $711,517
    Rasho Nesterovic 8,400,000
    I did not add Jack and Williams because im sure we're going to sign Jack. And if we dont sign Williams im sure we'll trade him for something. Not to mention, if we buy out Tinsley this year we'll have another $7 million-ish.

    Who are the top free agents next season? I know Marion will be if he doesnt sign an extention. I would love for the Pacers to sign him, but i know hes going to be expecting a lot of money.

    Al Horford
    Glen Davis (dont know much of his game)
    Drew Gooden
    Tyrus Thomas
    Jason Maxiell
    Al Harrington
    Andrew Bynum
    Lamar Odom
    Hakim Warrick
    Charlie Villanueva
    Josh Boone
    Stromile Swift
    Sean Williams
    Yi Jianlian
    David Lee
    Chris Wilcox
    LaMarcus Aldridge
    Channing Frye
    Greg Oden
    Spencer Hawes
    Sheldon Williams
    Andrea Bargnani
    Paul Millsap

    Not a bad list of big men next season. Hopefully Bird can sign one or two. Theres a lot of talent available next summer

    Even if we buy out J.T. his salary will still count against the payroll for the 3 years he has on it.

    Oden and Horford? As if there's any chance that their respective teams won't pick up their options.

    WTF is this?

    A) Pacers can't go after big FAs next year, not unless something else really major happens between now and then. They might not even be under the cap at all.

    B) Half those guys are on rookies with team 3rd year options, pretty standard. NONE of them get cut and several are going to be extended before the seasons even ends.

    I'm fine with the topic. Let's just try to do it with some sense of realism next time, otherwise it's a pointless discussion. We might as well discuss how great the team will be when they add Reggie and Jordan out of retirement and on enough juice to be their 90's selves again.

    My FA signings next offseason start at:

    1 ) Granger
    2 ) Jack
    3 ) Foster or Rasho ( likely Foster...depending on how well Hibbert does and whether Rasho fits into our lineup )

    Many of you probably think that we need to get a new Starting PF....but as far as I am concerned....our Starting PF is Murphy ( mainly cuz his contract is near immovable for the next 2 seasons ). With likely $2-3 mil that we have left to sign someone....we can sign the best backup PF that we can find.

    I want to build around a core of players that we can build good team chemistry with. I think that the core that we started off with last season of Granger/Dunleavy/Murphy/Foster/Diener ( now as our 3rd Backup PG ) is a good starting point.
