    For those that said that they wont trade Danny for no one...youre telling me you wouldnt trade Granger for Lebron, Kobe, or Dwight?????????? Thats just ridiculous.

    Borderline deals would probably be Bosh, Amare and Dirk

    I would trade Danny for Chris Paul straightup... anyday

    But Danny's a Pacer for as long as we can keep him, neither Chris Paul or Lebron James are coming in a trade...
    The NBA ... it's fannnnnnnnn-tastic! I LOVE this game!

    I think the only players clearly more valuable are:

    LeBron
    Dwight Howard
    CP3
    Kevin Durant
    Yao
    and maybe Deron Williams

    Since it's unclear about the rest, I think I'm fine keeping Mr. Granger and his son.

    I can't believe how much disrespect Chris Paul gets on this board. 2-3 threads calling him a second tier player, you guys are nuts. Absolutely bonkers.

    21 points 11 assists 5.5 board 3 steals at the most important position in the game, his team is actually winning games, AND he's 2 years YOUNGER than Danny.

    If we were trading DG straight up, salaries would have to match within 15%, right? I've not found anyone whose salary would match in a straight-up trade that I would trade Danny for. (Brandon Roy is of equal talent, methinks, but makes too much.)

    Trading Danny is the last thing this team needs. We need a second banana.

    If it dances... so be it.

    Considering the contract we just signed him to, I wouldn't trade anyone for Danny. Anyone with his level of talent will be making 20 million a year before Dannys contract is up, if they don't jump ship first. Maybe a young stud but noone is proven enough yet.

    It seems like a tough question to answer, depending on the qualifiers. Are we trying to win now/ are we worried about their contract.

    I'd say there are around 25 players I'd trade him for, including several that play positions that we aren't stacked at.

    I had a similar discussion with my father (a Raptors fan) the other day, asking him if he'd trade Bosh for Granger straight up. He said it was a no-brainer and he'd take Granger 10 times out of 10.

    To think, they could have had both if it weren't for Joey Graham.

    You can use any qualifiers you want.

    I'm looking at it right now as things are constructed with the Pacers.

    I'm not considering salaries matching and all that, it gets too clouded.

    I mean pure value of Danny Granger.

    My thoughts are this, Danny plays a position that has more good players and maybe isn't as critical as a Point Guard. Even Center back in the day, but not now, was as important as Point Guard. I wouldn't trade him for Yao for instance, but I would for Dwight Howard, probably/maybe. I wouldn't trade him for Devin Harris, but I would in a minute for CP3.

    CP3 to me should have been in my first group, looking back now or maybe in a group by himself with D Wade. To me, the best 2 players in the game are easily Lebron and Kobe. I'd take Lebron 10 out of 10 times because he's younger and can almost take a team to the finals COMPLETELY on his own. He's the magical makes others around him so much better. CP3 would be after those two with a healthy DWade. This after that I think it's all up for debate as far as who I would trade Danny for.

    The only guy I wouldn't even consider that has been listed here so far is Chauncey due to age and Carmelo do to the lack of willingness to play D.

    ---------

    Funny thing, with the mention of Jeff Green (joking) and Andrew Bynum on this thread. Ane then last night Jeff Green hits the game winner, I guess and Bynum goes OFF for 42/15. Don't underestimate the kiss of PD for a player.

    If we are to listen to what the Pacers said either earlier in the regular season or in the off season, we need a low post scoring pf. Amare is dissatisfied with his touches due to Shaq and apparently pouted and just scored only 3 points against the Celtics. He could be reborn here, and we could possibly package Granger with Baston and possibly get the deal done. Kerr might hold out for Diener instead, though.

    i just can't understand the hype about this guy. he became a star without playing and now he's turning into a superstar without playing even good. some guys are too overrated.

    there is no way on earth i would even consider trading danny for him.

    Default Granger on 2012 Olympic Team?

    Bird hopes so.

    http://www.nba.com/2009/news/01/22/p....ap/index.html
    Indianapolis (AP)
    nba.com



    Pacers' Bird has big goals for All-Star hopeful Granger

    By INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
    Posted Jan 22 2009 5:55AM

    The list of the NBA's top scorers is mostly predictable.

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Danny Granger, Dirk Nowitzki ... Danny Granger?

    Believe it.

    The Indiana Pacers' relatively unknown forward is averaging 26.2 points and is the league's No. 4 scorer -- making a strong case to earn his first All-Star selection in his fourth season.

    His legendary boss has bigger things in mind.

    "I want Danny to make the All-Star team, but I'd rather see him represent our country in the next Olympics," Pacers president Larry Bird, a gold medalist with the 1992 Dream Team, told the Associated Press. "That's what I want to see, and that's when you know you made it, because those are all the best players in the world."

    Bird said Granger's improved shooting, a result of his work ethic, should get him to the 2012 games in London.

    "In the last year, just watching from the beginning of the season, it's all business, but at a higher level," Bird said. "I think Danny understands what it takes to get there, and I think he'll do it."

    Granger averaged 34.7 points while shooting 49 percent over a six-game stretch against Western Conference teams that began on Jan. 3 and has scored more than 40 points three times since the start of December.

    That's quite a feat for a player who fell to 17th in the 2005 draft. Though he's not as well known as Chris Paul and Deron Williams, the most established stars of that draft, he leads that group in scoring.

    Granger isn't just putting up points, he's developing a reputation for making clutch shots. He drained a game-winning 3-pointer over two-time MVP Steve Nash on Jan. 7 in Phoenix, then made a game-tying jumper late in regulation before the Pacers beat Detroit in overtime a week later.

    He made another dramatic shot this week, a game-tying 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left Monday at New Orleans, before being one-upped by Paul at the buzzer.

    If he makes the All-Star game, he'll get voted in by the coaches. In the most recent returns from fan balloting, Granger was just eighth among Eastern Conference forwards.

    If history is an indicator, Granger's slot in the Feb. 15 game in Phoenix appears secure. No player since 1992 who has averaged at least 26.1 points and was healthy at the All-Star break failed to make his conference's team, according to STATS LLC.

    Bird never thought he'd have a chance to see Granger make it in a Pacers uniform. He recalls thinking he'd have to trade up for a shot at him.

    "The day we brought him in to work him out for the draft, I told him there's no way we'll get you at 17, you're just too good," Bird said. "I never even dreamed we'd have a possibility."

    A knee injury Granger suffered while playing at New Mexico scared teams off and allowed the Pacers to get their man.

    Granger's first NBA mentor was Ron Artest, the former defensive player-of-the-year now with Houston. Granger said intense practices and training sessions with Artest helped him understand how hard he needed to work to make it in the league.

    "He said they've always got somebody coming behind you waiting to take your spot," Granger said. "He said 'take you a spot, even if it's mine."'

    Granger has steadily improved each season. He averaged 7.5 points as a rookie, 13.9 his second season and 19.6 in 2007-08.

    With Artest, Stephen Jackson and Jermaine O'Neal having been traded the past three seasons, Granger is now the face of the franchise. He signed a five-year contract extension this season worth up to $65 million.

    "He's going to have to be the cornerstone now," Pistons foward Tayshaun Prince said. "He's the guy that's playing great basketball and carrying the load for the team."

    Granger scored 30 points in a loss at Utah on Jan. 12.

    "He has freedom throughout the offense," Jazz guard Ronnie Brewer said. "He's able to take it to the basket, come off downscreens, pick and rolls. If he's hot and gets it going, he's capable of scoring 40 points."

    He scored 37 points in the win at Phoenix, but the big shot over Nash was the one that increased his confidence the most.

    "It just took it to another level," Granger said. "I had already been scoring the ball, and at that moment in time, I really wanted to take that last shot. That's what I live for, that's the shot I want to take."

    Bird considers Granger a very good all-around player, but he wants Granger to continue to fine-tune the skills that don't involve scoring.

    "I don't care if you get 40," Bird said. "Get eight rebounds. Get five assists. It's them little things that make you a complete player. If I had anything to say about his game, he should be getting eight rebounds a game. Other than that, he's fine."

    Granger wants to attack his weaknesses to reach his personal goals and reward Bird's confidence. He sees making the Olympic team as a legitimate possibility.

    "That's a great honor, and I think I could definitely reach that level," he said. "It's definitely within my grasp. I just have to keep developing my game."

    Ideally:

    LeBron, Wade, Bosh, Howard, Paul, Deron, Roy, Granger, Millsap, Durant, plus one of Suckey/Rose and one of Oden/Lopez.

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

    I thought the 2012 team was coming from the same preset pool from a few years ago? I trust Kstat so I guess I'm out of the loop on the Olympics situation for 2012.

    The pool only has a 3-year window. There will be a new pool selected next summer for an additional 3 years.

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

    I don't know that you'll be able to write off Kobe or Carmelo in 3.5 years. They were too important in the last run.


    Chris Paul
    Kobe Bryant
    LeBron James
    Chris Bosh
    Dwight Howard

    Dwyane Wade
    Amare Stoudemire
    Deron Williams
    Carmelo Anthony

    The remaining 3 spots will be open.

    I'll take Greg Oden as interior defender, Derrick Rose as my 3rd PG, and the shooter spot is tough to call. Granger could get that but my money is on Durant.

    I'd like to see Granger on the team but I'd be surprised if it happened. Though if Coach K sticks around for another try I could see him falling in love with Danny.

    NO NO NO NO NO! I do NOT want Granger playing in the summer! I don't care about the honor, he's taking 3 years off of his career if he does 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!
