This summer, Bird and Morway decided to trade Bayless and Ike for Jack, McRoberts and Rush. When I first saw that trade I was kind of upset because of the talent that Bayless is supposed to possess. If you look at the trade now, it was actaully a smart and safe trade done by the Pacers. Ford has missed a few games this season which was expected. If we hadnt made this trade, our PG situation would have been Bayless (rookie) and Diener.
Now we are able to absorb the lose of Ford by starting Jack. Now that I think about this trade, Im glad Bird pulled the trigger. To me this trade was more of an insurance policy incase Ford goes down
