    Default My offseason plan 2009

    Here's what we do to get back into title contention:

    Trade with Toronto:

    Chris Bosh and Jason Kapono

    for

    Troy Murphy and Jamaal Tinsley, 1 st pick '09 and '10;

    Why on earth would Toronto do this?
    1. They save immediate money, and get 2 draft picks.
    2. Troy Murphy is coming off a great season. If he can do that in Toronto, they'd be a decent team.
    3. If they gave Jamaal a chance to prove he's cleaned up, he'd be the perfect backup pg.
    4. They get younger!

    Why would Indiana do it?
    Yes, giving up 2 consecutive draft picks is tough, but it puts you in contention, so you wouldn't get that high of a draft pick. I don't think we are going to have that many stars in this draft. especially at the Pf position.
    1. You get bosh. need I say more?
    2. You get rid of Jamaal
    3. We get right back in contention, and would more than likely give Cleveland a run for their money.
    4. Kapono is a good threat from 3


    2nd trade: Phoenix and indy

    simple trade of
    Louis Amundson for a resigned stephen Graham and 2 2nd round picks '09

    Why for phoenix?

    They get a energy guy for the bench, and get 2 picks in the 2nd round.
    And Indy?
    He's a very decent b/u that really put up some great games this season against us.

    This would be our depth Chart

    Hibbert/Foster/Mcroberts
    Bosh/Amundson/Mcroberts
    Granger/Kapono
    Rush/Dunleavy
    Jack/Ford/Diener

    This could be a very dangerous team. Although, these trades would probably be laughed at, I'm just thinking of ways to get bosh and Amundson without trading our big 3 of rush/granger/hib

    Hmmm...I don't know about the Toronto trade. As good as Bosh and Kapono sound, giving up two straight 1st rounds is kind of hard.

    I didn't think you can trade 2 consecutive 1 round draft picks?

    There's no way TO does that trade. Its horrible for them. They wouldn't want Murphy considering they already have Bragnani, both big men love to shoot 3s. Bosh is now going to be had without Rush, Hibbert or Foster being moved.

    Also TO doesn not want Tonsley. They're fine with Calderon and Ukic

    Am I the only one that wants to keep Troy a long time Pacer?

    I don't see him being a Pacer after 2011. I would perfer a PF with more of a post game

    He could still be a Pacer after 2011: If so, it would be at a reduced salary.

    But I could easily see him signing an MLE deal with a contender as a bigman off the bench.

    I think if he's still doing what he did this season in 2 years, Bird will bring him back.

    I think Birds first priority will be to sign a PF that has a post game. I think the only way Murphy is going to remain a Pacer after 2011 is for him to sign a deal which is less than $7 million/season

    We don't have two second rounders. Miami has ours for the Stanko trade. The Suns have like 3 second rounders anyway. Why would they need 5 second rounders?

    The other second rounder from Dallas was for a future year.
