MIN turns down offer of #10 for Flynn, have reportedly offered Flynn/16/23 for #10 + more - Page 11
Re: MIN turns down offer of #10 for Flynn, have reportedly offered Flynn/16/23 for #10 + more
But c'mon guys...didn't you read the whole thing? We could bring Flynn's warm infectious smile to our cold Indy winters! How could we turn that down, especially when we're giving up our best player AND getting 2 worse picks than our current one!
Just for the record, I'll be happy to lead the parade 'blasting' Bird
and crew for drafting either Orton (from what I've heard, he had
behind the scenes, attitude issues at KY somewhat similar to
Cousins, but given his minimial at best role down there, they
weren't fodder for media discussion, etc.) or Whiteside at #16.
As for the Flynn-T.J. Ford comparison, 'at this point', I suppose I
can see the comparison. But Flynn is 21 yrs old. T.J. is 26 yrs old.
Is it fair to lump in a kid with plenty of time to continue developing
his game at the PG spot with an NBA veteran who obviously is what
he is at this point ?
It may not be fair (or even intelligent for that matter ), but I guess when it comes to dealing the types of assets the Pacers have, I'd like to see them get a player who doesn't come with similar traits as the one they're trying to upgrade from.
Indiana never had a healthy TJ Ford, but when healthy, Ford was still a poor defender. I'd rather take a chance on someone like Sessions or Maynor than give up a bounty for an undersized PG who isn't a great shooter and not really a distributor.
KAHN: Three picks are too much; too many point guards available in the late first to tempt me. I'm freaking out. Bledsoe, Torrance. Johnson... I passed out the other day just thinking about drafting Bjelica -- a 6'10" point guard Larry. Do you hear me? SIX-TEN POINT GUARD! I can't handle having this many picks. Too much pressure. Too big.
So, after recovering from the freak-out, he did manage to grab Bjelica after all.
