"I like our group of people," Ainge told USA Today. "I'm trying to teach them about basketball, and they're trying to teach me about analytics."
Hi, not sure if any of you caught this, but there's an audio podcast of the entire press conference:
At the end of the 22 minutes, Kravitz asked Bird whether he thought the Pacers could sign both Jack and a player @ the MLE level, to which Bird responded that he thought he could actually sign *two* MLE-level players plus Jack.
Are we missing something from the numbers perspective? He also mentioned having a good sense of what Jack will ask for salary wise.

It's almost as if Thomas had a rush like light on his head during the sedason.
I think the only reason you would pick up Daniel's option is so he could fill in for MDJ for half a season and then you could shop him at the deadline to try and get a player you want from a team looking to cut salary.
