    His defense is very lacking, but people said the same thing about Pau when he was there too. THings changed the second he switched teams.
    Yeah, it's amazing how an A+ coach and an A+ player can motivate someone to start giving a crap.

    Sign and trade in the off-season, sending Troy Murphy to Memphis with Brandon Rush and 2011 first round pick (three years of tiered protection - as late as 2013).

    I am still really high on BRush, but I think if you can get a guy like Rudy Gay, you make the move. He gives us another scorer and a guy that is a very capable defender. We would have a ton of length and scoring on the wings, and I don't think it would hurt us to play them both at the same time at SG/SF. IMO.

    I love how any time player X becomes available everyone thinks the Pacers should be interested in him...

    I'd rather have Prince than Gay.

    If Memphis can't keep Rudy Gay then this deal make a little bit more sense.

    Indiana has no need for Rudy Gay. You can't pair two alpha scorers who play the same position like Granger and Dunleavy together. I don't see why they would even be interested.
    Fixed.
    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!

    Dumars gave up the pick that he got from Milwaukee in the Rodney White trade. He traded that to Atlanta for Rasheed.

    That pick ended up getting Atlanta Josh Smith, so it wasn't nearly as lopsided as people make it. Obviously a great trade for the Hawks, but even better for the Pistons since it won them a championship (and very nearly another one the next year).
    iirc, josh smith was drafted #19 or so. surely you're not suggesting that josh smith level talent is available every year in the middle of the first round.

    it was a great *draft* by the hawks, to make up for a rather lousy trade. i agree that it was a great *trade* by the pistons. any time you turn a mid-first pick and expiring contracts into a difference maker, it's a great trade.

    With O'B as our coach, we have little to no ball movement anyway. Many times after the first 10 seconds the player with the ball just shoots. We can handle having two guys who want the ball in their hands (we have more than that now, anyway, and would likely have to trade away one of them to get Gay). It is exactly what O'B wants for his system, too, more guys to score the ball and less predictability, and more scoring of the ball (yes, I added that a second time to represent how important scoring is to O'B). If you are right, Gay could be the Robin to Danny's Batman. Otherwise, it could be vice versa.

    Wow, O'B might even be willing to let Murphy go to the Cavs (or elsewhere) if we could somehow trade other pieces for Gay.
    I hope to God , we are not looking at players that "fit Obie's system"

    please God

    Pretty much. We need guys that fit the NBA game, first.

    I thought the exact same thing..... Can we just say that the Pacers need _______ and leave it at that.

    No thanks to Gay, there's no need for him on the Pacers. Even if we needed him, I'm not as high on him as most other people, seeing as he leaves a lot to be desired on defense despite his offensive skill. If I were Memphis, I'd look into flipping him for a player in the territory of a Trevor Ariza or Gerald Wallace.

    No way they deal Rudy Gay he is too big for their hopes of making the playoffs, He hit the GW shot tonight with 1.3 sec left to beat the Thunder and extend their home game win streak to 10 games, and scored their last 7 points including the GT 3 with 6.7 left before losing to NO with a last sec shot the game before.
