    Default Granger to the nets? {Bleacher Report trash}

    http://network.yardbarker.com/nba/ar...e_Nets/2834678

    After reading this article granger to the nets might not be as bad i'd i had previously thought.

    With doing this we would solve the pg spot and at a modest contract through 2012-13 9mil a year. Almost the type of deal granger is on with bang for your buck.

    Derek Favor is one of the best pf in recent years from the draft. And has the nba body to be a 10 n 10 guy. Next to Roy they would be a pretty big wall to the rim.

    Granger is gone but, George a more athletic granger could possibly be the best player out of this draft. Being put into a starting role right away could be a great opportunity for him and really drive him.

    Not to metion we will have our cap space next year and could upgrade on a sg and sf along with some other key players. That could be a contending team in say 4yrs.

    I like the reward side, but the risk is just too great. Trading away Granger could easily have huge negative ramifications for our team if Favors underwhelms and Harris continues to be a mediocre shooter (40%, 27%) and generally overrated point guard. Like Bill Simmons says, it doesn't matter who you are, if you're the best player on a 12 win team, you're just not that good.

    I actually dont mind this trade but I dont think the Nets will give us Favour and Harris for just Granger. If they do, I think its a no brainer for Bird to pull the deal

    We would have a great core of Harris, Rush, George, Favours and Hibbert. With talent like that it would attract other FA to come to Indy

    This has already been discussed. This won't probably happen, but I am not totally against it. It would shake things up.

    No one ever hit a home run without swinging the bat.

    You also don't hit a home run by swinging at every pitch that comes within 10 feet of the plate.
    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!
