    Default Pacers looking to make big trade?

    http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=11086

    From: Hoopsworld By: Steve Kyler

    "Indiana Pacers: The Pacers do have one big chip to cash in Jamaal Tinsley. The problem is while there are several teams that have expressed interest in Tinsley, the Pacers might have to eat a contract worse than Tinsley's and that's not where the team wants to be. Toss in a four-game losing streak and a horrid 10-21 record, and the Pacers are facing the temptation of making a bolder, bigger trade. The Pacers acknowledge that they are without their high scorer from last year in Mike Dunleavy who spent yesterday in the hospital with a nasty viral infection. His timeline for a return from knee surgery is still uncertain. As good as the Pacers have looked at times on the floor it's clear they simply do not have enough horsepower to beat quality teams, hence why the club is said to be considering a bigger bolder move, especially as the trade deadline gets closer."


    Frankly, I'd believe a guy walking out of the crazy asylum saying he was abducted by aliens over Hoopsworld, especially since they said Dunleavy had knee surgery and that he was our top scorer last year, but I figured it was something to discuss.

    Said by who????

    It has been said on here that the Pacers are looking to sign Roaming Gnome to play the two guard position to help fill the hole until Dunleavy returns.

    I just said it so therefor it has been said.

    No reason not to make a move.

    If we could move some package of Tinsley, Quis, or Rasho for something that helps us in the future then I'm for it.
    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!

    We'd definitely have to include Tinsley, Dunleavy or Murphy in with the expirings (Quis & Rasho) to be able to do anything financially. Someone had mentioned packaging Quis & Rasho together, but that would likely have the same effect as extending their contracts at least another season, which, along with the Granger and Foster extensions, would (almost certainly) put us over the luxury tax.

    Because of our poor record we now are looking to shake-up the roster even more? I must have hallucinated that Granger was our leading scorer last season. I hope we do make a trade before the deadline involving Tinsley, but if we have to take a bigger, longer contract in the process then let him rot in Atlanta. You don't rebuild a team by taking on big contracts.

    Hum, maybe Zeke didn't get that memo. Zeke had a team salary at 130 mil at one time, not to mention having Dolan's pocketbook to be able to buy out contracts of his mistakes.

    I feel Bird is really feeling the heat, and wouldn't be a bit surprised to see it happens. I don't believe he is interested in making a mid season trade after the GS trade, but may be forced to do it if the team can't change it's losing ways.

    Just tell me this..... is there any way that a mid-season trade could make this team even softer than it already is? Don't give me silly answers, I mean this seriously: Have we at least hit rock bottom in that department when you consider the pieces most likely to be coming and going?

    Ya I read that and was like WTF also. Dunleavy hasnt had surgery and but I think they meant to say Dunleavy was a top scorer last season, which he was

    This team is rebuilding, but in the meantime, Bird and Co. still wants to win. Sometimes winning and rebuilding can go hand-in-hand. (Rare occasions.) I do feel that we have a couple of things we can put on the table for a trade. Taking on another contract doesn't always have to be big and scary, especially if you can find some talent along the line.

    Be open to some options here, they could work out in our favor.

    Sloan would probably do Murphy for Okur.

    When you mean "coming and going", do you mean a lack of consistency?

    No he wouldnt. Murphy doesnt have enough value to score Okur

    Besides last week's illness, the team is getting a lot of of Troy.

    I'll have to disagree with you all, there.

    Besides Murphy's production, have you guys thought of his contract? Which GM is going to think Murphy's contract is worth it?

    2008 - 2009: $10,126,984
    2009 - 2010: $11,047,619
    2010 - 2011: $11,968,254

    Dont get me wrong, I would be all for trading Murphy for Okur if we could, I just dont see that happening

    I feel a little bit of redundancy here...

    Either way, I'd like to keep Troy. I'm happy with his production so far (I wish he'd win us more games...cough...Lakers), but unloading his contract is not far from impossible, it's doable, but let's face it...he isn't doing bad at all.

    Hmm, interesting.

    Murph has 3 years on his contract, while Okur has two. I don't particularly like Okur, and Murph has been better than I ever expected, but I'd still probably do that just to get the rebuild moving faster.

    Murphy's not the solution at PF and won't be traded for the guy who is, so you might as well make a move and clear minutes for McBob to develop.

    My bad. Thought Okur had three years left as well, but he's "only" got $8.5 million this year and $9.0 million next.

    Talentwise, Murphy is much more useful, however. Especially to Sloan. But, yeah, the front office in Salt Lake isn't gonna take on that extra, overpriced year.

    Really, though...I was just making a joke at the expense Charmin-warrior Memo Okur -- much like that Hoopsworld article is a joke at the expense of rational though.

    When did the Pacers need anything to do with a competitive eater?!? Then again, judging from the pancake eating contest at the Fieldhouse last night.... you never know...

    Does Montieth have a job any more? Take away his job. Take away his head cover. Doesn't seem quite fair.

    Could've included his teammate Korver in that deal.

    I'm sure New Jersey would deal Yi.

    With Pietrus being out indefinitely the Magic must have interest in Quis.

    Anthony Johnson.

    Just kidding. Their 1st rounder would be a good start. Cook (expiring) and Reddick would work as salary filler.

    Aren't trades suppose to be discussed in the trade forum or has that been changed?
