    Default Expect Pacers to make a run at Jordan Farmar

    Per Mike Wells on Twitter:

    LA Times reports Lakers do not make a qualifying offer to PG Jordan Farmar. Expect the Pacers to pursue him.

    Don't mention the '06 draft, don't mention the '06 draft, don't mention the '06 draft.

    Sure, why not? I said on twitter that obtaining him would solve the PG situation for at least a year.

    No it wouldn't. I like Farmar but there's a reason the Lakers aren't making a qualifying offer, and it ain't the luxury tax.

    I'd like to see how he does outside of the Triangle. The Triangle just doesn't really seem PG-friendly.


    Hell.....maybe we should try it. Couldn't hurt.

    I've liked Farmar for a while. Wanted him in the '06 draft.

    Perhaps we should merge this with the other thread

    I wouln't mind us getting him, but he certainly doesn't excite me or do I think he is the splash we need to make at the position.

    I'd rather have him as our starting PG than TJ effing Ford.

    Not sure about a better fit, but I'm sure he'd be cheaper, and can do similar things even if not a starter, he'd be nice as a backup, and would likely get more minutes as our backup then elsewhere

    The Lakers could throw Jeanie Buss out there at the Point and still win 50 games a season.

    I like him but it's hard to picture him leaving LA. He is just about to take over for Fisher if he can stay around a few more years, which is his dream to be the Lakers starting PG. Plus he is a Cali kid and has never left the area. It would be a good pick up if we can swing it though.

    Of course, most of us preferred TJ Ford over Jamaal ****ing Tinsley at one point in time.

    I like him better than felton for our offense personally, I just wonder how much they would have to pay him and how long the contract would be for.... It is really crazy how much some players who don't really have to do much get paid in the NBA... I hate when teams over pay players...It often really hurts the teams in the future.

    The NBA Salary Cap for this next season is $56,000,000, roughly.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5099980

    Right now we are actually over the cap, at around $65,000,000.

    I doubt Farmar would be that expensive to attain. Like, I'm fairly certain he'd cost less than Felton would cost us.

    LT cap is all we have to stay below... we'd sign players with exceptions or a S&T.

    If we sign Paul George, we will be almost exactly at the Luxury Tax. Sign either or both of the 2nd rounders, and we're over the Tax.

    The Pacers - Bird, Simon - have repeatedly said that they will not pay the tax.

    We have the ability to offer a Free Agent up to the full MLE, or about $5.8mm, however, if we seek to avoid the luxury tax, then we can effectively offer any free agent:

    $0

    Of course, we have until April of next year to get our payroll under the luxury tax. However, the further over the tax we go, the more likely it is that we will have to complete a trade similar to the one that Utah made last year - where they were forced to package Eric Maynor in order to get OKC to take Harpring's contract and reduce their payroll.

    Therefore, I believe that any thought of signing a Free Agent should also consider which asset - Rush, Hansbrough, Hibbert, George, future draft picks - it might possibly cost us down the road.
