Thread: Is Travis Diener opting out?

  1. #1

    Default Is Travis Diener opting out?

    Take this how you want to, but Diener just put his house in Carmel on the market within the past few days.

    I'm not saying he won't be back in Indy next year, but it really has to make you wonder if he thinks the Pacers are drafting a point next week and he may look for a new job elsewhere? Perhaps he is downsizing, but I think this could be a sign he won't be back in Indy next year.

    Should be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks.........

    I really like Diener, I do. I'm sure dustpan likes him more, but if he opts out, I will not be upset.

    I would think that unless TPTB are giving strong indications to the Team that they are heavily leaning towards a PG, it would be premature for Diener to put his house on sale a week before until we actually draft someone.

    If he does, it's not wise. I can't see where there will be a high demand for a guy like him in this economic climate.

    Or for his house!
    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!

    I wouldnt be too worried if we lose him. Theres a lot of FA that we can look at to replace him. I think we're going to need a 3rd string PG, in case Ford goes down again. I would take a serious look at bringing back Anthony Johnson

    I would much, much rather draft a PG "project" like Jennings who will be ready to start by the time Ford is out of here.

    I don't think Travis is opting out though.

    Could it be the Pacers have told him he's part of a future deal? Part of a draft deal!

    Didn't he just get married?

    Maybe his future wife just has a bigger house than him and he feels intimidated?

    I smell a draft day deal. I think we are moving up in the draft and Diener is going to be used a filler in a trade.

    In a move up to #5? Who else is looking to trade back? Ford/Foster/Diener for some crap like Thomas/James/Songaila and #5? I feel like the Wiz could do better but maybe not.

    Yeah, but they were talking about this Anthony Johnson:

    After everything shakes out and, if there's still a need, what about a guy like Earl Calloway as the #3 point? I know several people liked him when he played on the summer league team. Plus, he'd come for cheap too.

    Golden State. Keep in mind a lot of teams are trying to shed salary. If a team moves up and misses the GM is out of job. It is a roll of the dice.

    Right but we can't really help shed salary is the problem.

    Do you think Diener would sell his house because there was talk of a draft-day trade? Those things are pretty tentative, and until they happen they haven't happened.

    It isn't tentative if the deal is in place, and he's been told byTPTB. The draft is a week from today, and the house has just been put on the market. Maybe just a coincidence, but WHAT a coincidence of timing if it is. Players just don't put up their houses, especially in this economic climate, just for the fun of it. Why try and sell a house and have to possibly take a loss just to sell your house unless there is a reason? Something is going on in Diener's BB career to cause him to sell. Again, maybe his agent has another team wanting him, and Diener isn't going to pick up is option with the Pacers. If I was betting person, I'd bet a dozen Long's yeast donuts that Diener won't be with the Pacers next season.

    I think you are drawing an awful lot of conclusions there. Players are like any other people--they move. Diener either just got married, or is about to get married. Don't you think that might have something to do with it? Maybe his wife doesn't like the house, prefers a different area, wants a bigger yard, etc. There are hundreds of possible reasons he could be moving, and I don't think him being traded is the most likely. If it is him opting out...well, best of luck to you Travis.

    Maybe Travis is positioning himself like Danica. If Travis was going to be a great backup or eventual starter he would have been there by now. Guys like him can be replaced. He plays good team defense, can handle and pass but the shooting is still suspect.
