    Default Utah/Pacers

    Millsap for Rush and Foster

    Millsap would easily be out solution at PF (long term)

    Collison
    George
    Granger
    Millsap
    Hibbert

    Utah has invested to much in Milsap for that.

    I was thinking about Utah, and the fact that they're still gonna be over the LT this year.

    Is this pie in the sky?
    AK-47 + Milsap for Tyler, Rush, Foster, Dunleavy.

    This adds $4.2M in salary for the Pacers this year, which puts them close to but not over the LT. It removes $4.2M from the Jazz, who are at roughly $75M. So the worst case scenario for them is it save tham $8.4M total (when you include the LT). Also, it gets them in striking distance of actually being under the tax with a follow up trade.

    So that seems like a big financial haul for them. They'd probably still be ok on the court, and we would definitely get a big boost.

    I`m not ready to give up on Rush just yet and Foster is the only back up center. I would look at a trade M.D. OR T.J. (or either of the Jones

    Honestly, I doubt we could get Millsap from Utah without sending them Danny. And I don't think that would be a good idea on our part.

    I can't figure how they're that high on Milsap when they just traded for Al Jefferson. So I'd think he's gettable. I think we can live with Solo, McRoberts, and going small. You could really play Milsap like a C in a pinch. He's got a big enough *** for it

    Jefferson was definitely obtained to play center in Okur's absence. If he ever plays alongside Fesenko he'll probably slide to the 4 but I would be very surprised to see them trading Millsap without getting a quality, starter-caliber player in return.
