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.
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!
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.
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.
