    Default Assuming the Jackson trade goes down as expected...

    Do we still have the mid-level exception available to us to maybe do a sign and trade with, for example only, Golden State and Dampier?

    Or maybe just a sign a free agent for the MLE?

    Since Atlanta used its MLE and traded that player for Harrington, I think we should still have it. Any thoughts?
    Two=the number 2
    Too=means "also"
    To=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (two, too) do not apply.

    Their=shows ownership-'it is their house'
    They're=they are
    There=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (their, they're) do not apply

    Sorry but it bugs me when these are used incorrectly when I read posts on PacersDigest.com.

    yes you still have the MLE. however, dampier said he expects to have a contract starting at $10M per year. only a S&T could bring him were for that price. i expect him to sign with a team under the cap.

    Even if we could use the MLE, we won't. We're not adding more salary (except a min. to get a backup point.) That's a large part of why Jackson was a sign-and-trade, to save money by giving up Al's contract.

    I'm hoping we don't sign anybody to the min (except Brewer).

    If we keep Brewer and Freddie gets bumped to the 1 and we sign our 2nd-round pick, we'd have 4 point guards. That's plenty, thanks.
    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 wouldn't mind using the MLE on Damon Jones or Troy Hudson personally.

    Damon Jones would be a better fit, and he'd come cheaper. If the Pacers sign ANYONE to play backup PG it will be him.

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

    I was pretty impressed with his play against the Pistons, besides the turnovers.

    I wish I knew who Damon Jones was. I know some of you have tried to tell me, but I think it's time I start reading up on him...

    Damon was the backup PG during Carlisle's 1st season in Detroit.

    He's one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA, and he's a big physical PG, and he typically doesnt make mistakes. His turnover ratio is very good.

    HOWEVER, he's slow defensively, he's not very good off the dribble, and while he doesnt make many bad passes, he doesnt make any very good ones either.

    Well if we want a backup PG other than Wright, and we don't get AJ back, I hope we get him then.

    The better we can be at hitting the 3-ball, the better.

    Sounds a lot like AJ. Ragnar would commit suicide.
    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

    I love how you have a dancing pepper at the thought of Ragnar's death. :
