    Default Sources say Pacers are trying to trade the 10th pick

    According to Alex Kennedy's (Tampa area writer, who is also a Senior Analyst the Bleacher Report) twitter update, the Pacers are trying to move the pick before draft night.

    http://twitter.com/AlexKennedyNBA/status/15285816318

    Sources confirm that the Indiana Pacers are trying to move the tenth overall pick. The team doesn't expect to have the pick on draft night.

    On draft night? Meaning that the pick will be gone before draft night, or we'll make a move on draft night depending on how teams select, and we'll be picking for someone else? If that was case, Bird is going to have to make trigger pull decision in 3 minutes...or whatever the time is between selections.

    Most likely any trade would depend on player X being there for the other team to select, so the trade probably wouldn't be announced until after the selection is made.

    2011 is a smokescreen. LB is gonna pull a celtics, and get us two superstars to go with our paul pi oh wait... I mean Danny Granger.

    Something good will happen on draft night. So good, most of us will complain and criticize it.

    Not at all surprised about the Pacers more than likely moving this pick.

    There more than likely won't be a player at 10 that will help us, either this coming season or in the next few.

    Bird has mentioned that sooner or later he wants to add a veteran. I'm sure there will be someone available that another team would love to get their hands on. I just hope that they have another piece to the puzzle that Bird is putting together.

    There is no better postion to add a veteran to than the PG spot. A rookie would more than likely take a year or two to learn the postion at the NBA level. A veteran PG could come in & make the rest of the team better.

    I'd take that pick in a heartbeat for anyone on our roster aside from Stuckey....

    The problem is there isn't a person on your roster worth that pick outside of Stuckey.

    Sadly, that might (might) be the only roster in the league that I like less than ours.

    Interesting if true (no reason to doubt it really).

    Question is, is Bird looking to get a vet or move up in the draft?... or down for that matter...

    I find it extremely unlikely that Bird does something like this.

    I think the #10 pick is far and away our best trading asset, and I think we're looking to package it with at least one of the expiring contracts and get a vet.

    Despite my spitballing in the Granger #4 thread, I don't see the Pacers making any move that doesn't give an immediate on the floor return.

    In fact, I will be shocked if we don't come out of draft night with a new, vet/young vet PG. I can't say whether we'll like it or not, but I think all of the pressure for the Pacers will be to move faster, not to take longer.

    I keep hearing this is a "playoff/ 0.500" roster as is.

    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 in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    If they get a good vetweran point guard and if health is good and the team comes together then yes I think they can win 41 games next season. Those are a lot of ifs though.

    If they get a good veteran PG and if they can upgrade at SG so that Rush is the sixth man and if Granger is 100% for all 82 games and if they can find a physical PF to split time with Tyler and if they can upgrade the backup PG and C positions and if O'Brien gets fired after the first day of training camp and if they lead the league in fewest-games-missed then they might be 0.500 next season.

    But then they'll probably be locked into a bunch of new long term contracts to replace Murphy, Ford, Dunleavy, etc. so they'll be stuck with 0.500 for a few years -- not on their way to contending but a perennial #6,7,8 seed where we're just hoping to get to game #6 of the first round so its "respectable."

    (While I'm not very good at math, I count 8 "if's" in there.)

    This was a team that only got up to 32 wins because of a late-season flurry led, partially, by the development of a young player that most of PD is ready to give up on and ship out of town.

    Some of you have been watching too much playoff basketball and you've forgotten just how far the blue-and-gold is from being a legit playoff team.

    D-Wade is kind of the allure of that roster, no? Would you trade our roster for the Cavs' roster without LeBron?

    If that group of Cavalier players cannot get out of the 2nd round , WITH LEBRON!!

    Why would I want them here..??!?!

    Cause a Lebron caliber player isn't gonna be walking through the door anytime soon , barring a miracle ..

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Which I'd think Stucky would be the main target.

    Otherwise, I'd take Ben Gordon for his historic clutchness and Will Bynum for his spurtability (although I looked at his stats, they aren't as good as I suspected), but I don't see a match other than Stucky really.

    I like all of the Pistons PG through SF, pretty much though. None address a need or a huge impactful move for the Pacers, imo.

    Bird trading the #10 pick could mean trading back into the draft with Minnie, Memphis, or OKC for 2 later picks.

    Or trading with Milwaukee for their #15 & 37. Milwaukee needs a big and at #10 one should be available to them.

    Ridnour is a FA and a veteran PG which meets both Birds's wanting a PG and a veteran, so maybe some type of a deal of players and picks being traded.

    There is all types of scenario possibilities, but I don't see Bird trading the #10 w/o getting another pick in return. JMOAA

    Any trade Bird does won't be for a Parker/Brand type player. Bird isn't a big splash type person. Conservative trades are his MO. And I agree with what Count said about whatever trade Bird does make many won't like.

    To me the biggest type splash trade would be one for Collison, but a more likely type conservative trade would be for Sessions, or a Ridnour/Blake S&T type trade.

    I really think that has more to do with what assets Bird has available for trade, rather than what he prefers to do. If you're trading the 10th pick, you get the best player you can for that pick. If he's going conservative again on us, that probably means the Pacers would offer a less glamorous package.

    Now if we DO give up the #10 for a Luke Ridnour or Ramon Sessions, that's not just being conservative that's overpaying.
