    Default FA Sean May back home???

    Ok, before I even get started about Sean May coming to the Pacers...I agree he is injured prone. So lets go on the thought he is HEALTHY.

    If he is healthy, do you guys think it would be good for him to return home? We all agree we are looking for a PF, which he can play. In his 2nd season for 35 games in 23mins a game, he avg 12pts and almost 7 rebounds a game (shooting .500 FG). If healthy, could he be an good addition to the Pacers down low? Is he able to play JOB style?

    The dude needs to lose 25+ pounds or he is just a short Oliver Miller with less skills.

    I'd like him only if he can get in shape, allowing even the possibility of staying healthy. Unfortunately I don't think he can or will do that.

    I just remember back in the 2005 draft how Dick Vitale was just foaming at the mouth and lathering all sorts of praise on the Bobcats for drafting two huge winners in Felton and Sean May.

    Talked about how it was important for the Bobcats to draft winners.....and then to get two winners who played on the same NCAA title team? Vitale was literally wetting himself.

    Of course now you don't hear a peep out of Vitale about how these two guys have barely made a ripple in the league.

    I'd like to have a healthy Sean May. If that exists.

    If not, I'd rather have Blair.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Oliver Miller is wanting back in the NBA. Has lost weight and is in great shape. He'd come cheap and is experienced if you want to take a chanz.

    I still like Shelton Williams. Bird can probably sign him cheap.

    Ya know, when you put it that way, why not commit to getting him (which will certainly be less than the $3.8 mil option price Charlotte declined to offer) and not even think anymore about drafting Blair? Both have injury concerns, both have weight concerns. May has a better offensive game; Blair's a better rebounder. Most of all, May seems to have motivation issues ... but where better to re-ignite the fire than by bringing him home?

    Certainly worth looking into. (I'm sure TPTB already have.)

    He reminds me of Glen Davis. Pretty heavy, but when healthy, can be a good forward.

    He's got to be very cheap and he would be home where he has some support. I would have no trouble with a 1 year minimum deal.

    Clearly Blair's knees are a concern. I felt bad for the kid dropping like that. And then he lands in San Antonio! Yeesh. What a great fit for him and the Spurs. And if the knees really are a problem, it was only a second rounder...

    Dropping to the Spurs I think was probably the best thing that could have happened to him (except the financial aspect).

    No expectations, want to prove yourself as being a lottery-pick talent, great team culture, great players to learn from.

    And a role ready-made for him to step into.

    May is a low risk/high reward player. He will be an Unrestricted Free Agent and may sign anywhere in July. I would think a team will give the Bloomington native a chance. I think May still has a lot to prove and could be a solid bench guy. Yes, I would roll the dice on him and invite him to camp as he will likely sign for cheap.

    Best case scenario: He becomes a Big Baby Davis type of player and gives you 6-8 points and a few rebounds off the bench

    Worst Case Scenario: He can't keep the weight off and is in Europe within 2 years

    We don't have the $$$ nor the minutes to sign a player like May. I'd rather keep our PF/C rotation of Hibbert/Murphy/Foster/Hansborough/McRoberts then sign May.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    We have 4 backup PFs already. What we need is a starter.
    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!

    Sean May will return home to Indiana - to a recliner and a bag of stale Cheetos somewhere in B-town.

    I think that pretty much sums it up.
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.
