1.Draft a C to back up Roy
Roy can play very well against some teams, but he will has trouble when he face athlete C on the defence side. It's very unstable. Because of he's limit athlete, he may not able to slove the problem in his whole nba career.
However, he still can be a good starter C for the Pacers(personality,size,offence skill and work very hard)
#good starter c- not means all star, but do the dirty work and fix in the team role.
So we are not going to sign or draft an all star C to replace roy and put him on the bench. but he really need some helps.
So i prefer to draft a C in 2010 nbadraft to back up roy. as we only have 1xth pick this year, not too many choices this year, maybe Hassan Whiteside is a good pick for us(because u only can get role player in this draft, potential starters?no...)(we already have so many role players...but no pure starters)
2. Move rush to the bench with d.jones
So lets talk about rush. Huge potential young player and great defence skill. But he can't play with granger.
why? when we see d.jones play with granger, jones will still take so many shot because he's personality. Jones like to attack the basket and little be selfish on the offence side. However, when rush play with granger and murphy, he will move the ball to them and let them to take the offence role. he is too unselfish and didn't has the attitude to take the offence role by himself as we know he can do that. he will be little be lost himself on the offence side and seeing granger and murphy take shot after shot.Sometimes he just disappear from the court.
So lets move rush to the bench to play SF back up granger, D.jones play Back SG. After that, we may got the greatest second union in the nba.
Then we sign a star SG to share granger's pressure.(Because granger is not too stable too, he will make some bad shot and make a lot of TO in the sametime.)
So i suggest to sign Joe Johnson type of player.(i know we can't get joe johnson in this summar) but someone who play like him can really play with granger and fix in the starter sg role.
3. Solve the PF position conflict.
We have murphy who can take big shot in the offence and get foul in the defence. Stronge offence game and bad defence game really creat the conflict for the Pacers.
We all know that we have to let murphy go, but who can replace murphy?
Some of u will suggest to draft a PF in this year nbadraft. But we already have Josh and Tyler(2 good role players), Ekpe Udoh? wt makes u think that he will be better than josh and tyler? i think ekpe udoh is the same level of player like tyler and josh. They are all good role players but not the starter PF. We already have both tyler and josh...(i still think we shouldn't draft tyler last year, he is good but only role player, we already have josh....it's conflict..)
So lets move our expire contracts to get a starter PF for us.
Suggestion: someone like Paul Millsap. why? because if jazz resign boozer, they may move millsap.
ok...u don't like him?u want bosh?amar? face the fact....not going to happen right?
but i am not sure any other possible choices are on the market this summar? if not, we may still keep murphy 2010-2011, because we have no choice.
# play more josh and tyler if the team keep murphy pls larry!!
4. Upgrade PG position and let aj price play backup pg
So we have to let waston go, why? sorry...thanks everything he did for us this year, but if we need to move to next level, maybe Raymond Felton is better the answer.
we don't really need a pg to have 20+points per game but who can defence well and get his own shot on the court. so felton? maybe he is the guy? better than waston i think...
Price is ok, so let him play back up pg....
#don't sign 4-5 pg this summar pls.....one starter, price backup and get another backup is ok....enough
