    Neither Rubio or Darren are close to star Quality... especially not rubio
    I think Darren is going to be a star for us and will become a more well known player in the league.

    The only player on the list worth getting is Jason Richardson. We need a drastic improvement at the SG position because rush and dun are simply not going to get the job done.

    One brings the offense and the other brings the defense. The problem is we need both from one player. Let rush walk, sign dun for less money and try to sign Richardson to a 2 or 3 year deal.

    It sucks that we have all this cash and no one to realistically go after. We are so close I can taste it. I just hope larry is patient with the money and does not do a impulse buy.

    We need cash to resign hibbert. Hopefully josh can maintain his high level of play into the season. If he can do that we need a SG. I really wish we could use our exipirings to get the SG we want.


    I can also see a deal around the trade deadline between the pacers and hawks to clear up cap room for horford.
    Isn't Richardson getting old. Like Darrell Armstrong old?

    Unfortunately, no. I don't think anyone is interested in trading their "star" player to the Pacers. There might be some options around the trade deadline but I'm pretty sure that most teams are willing to go into the season with what they have right now.

    The Pacers best chance to be a star player wears #55.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Granger's a star?
    You think he isn't? His numbers certainly are, will you be saying the same thing if he puts up comparable numbers and we are in the playoffs? Would you be saying the same thing if we had won 2 more games 2 years ago and got to the playoffs? The team plays MUCH better when granger is in as opposed to when he is out, he makes the team win more, I don't know what else you are asking for. If he is healthy, and puts forth a bit more defensive effort he could easily be a top 15 player int he league.

    Because the numbers are beyond reproach... He is a star. Winning now needss to happen to qualify him as m ore than just an all star level player.

    LOL I looked him up, he's 29!? I always thought he was older. I watched a special on the Phoenix Suns training camp last year and they talked about him like he was in his 30's and on the the tail end of his career.

    I wish there were a way to bring Eric Gordon back home, IMO he is strong enough to defend slightly taller guys, and would be a dream for us on offense. However the days of fleecing the "joke" team of LA may be over, now that they have what looks to be a solid cornerstone in Griffin. I actually like their team quite alot.

    he's 31 in January. Unfortunately i have nothing else to add to this thread. The previous posts speak for themselves... I don't think its gonna happen and if something does... it'll be something wild.

    How dare anyone bash darrel armstrong

    lol ya he isnt real old and he can hit the 3 really well. He likes running in transition. If he didnt have a big contract i would take him.

    Wow a robermto sighting to bash Danny. You got your dig in, you can now return to your hole.
    At least he's started out coming out again. Ever since he claimed that Granger "disappeared" in the 4th quarter and then was promptly presented with about 100 stats that suggested otherwise he hasn't been around much.

    He may not be a star and he may be getting up there in age but he is the best player in a pile of poop not named melo or horford.

    We have all this cap space and no players to give it to worth going after. I hope larry doesnt spend it on the dantay jones and jeff fosters and trys to get a ace.

    The Clippers will probably match, but on the other hand Donald Sterling, Clippers owner, has had a reputation for being notoriously cheap

    Gordon is a RFA after 2011

    Eric will get a huge offer sheet probly 5 yr 60 mill and clippers probly wont match. Unless Baron's contract is off the book by then.

    Random question: Let's say that Gordon and George are both here in three years. Who's starting?

    I think your correct, I think I was referring to the age he will be when he is an UFA in 2012 , 2 years form now, so that makes sense

    I can also tell you from living in Pheonix the last two years prior to comming to Chicago, that Jason was a stud for the Suns, loved by the team and fans and one of the most consistent players next to Nash

    Could really go either way. I remeber when no one thought he would match the offer for Brand and he did,

    how ironic he was lcuky that Philly took him

    Well, aside from the fact that I think we've all developed a serious case of "Shawne Williams syndrome" when it comes to PG's skills, I'd have to go with Gordon. I think he's about to have a huge, breakout year for the Clippers. He's got every skill you could want on offense, and is a very solid defender for his size.
