    Default Chad Fords Chat 1/26/11

    Who is the biggest name in your opinion to get traded by the deadline and to whom? (Excluding Melo)


    Chad Ford (1:11 PM)

    I want to say Steve Nash, though the Suns continue to strongly insist he isn't going anywhere. A number of GMs in the league think Danny Granger might be available if they can give Larry Bird two starters in return. Mo Williams and Zach Randolph both seem to be in heavy rotation right now.

    I saw that. Still can't imagine us trading Granger unless we get a sweetheart of a deal.

    If Danny can only net Mo and Zach, then I'll pass. Just younger talent/picks.

    Two starters...so the two players would have to be a SG/SF and a PF....

    Who would give up TWO starters for Granger? They would have to be bad starters to offer up two of them.

    What about Utah, they need a wing. How about Milsap, AK47, and Hayward? Just spit balling

    Hey Chad, KP was invited to spend some Quality time with Larry Legend, big changes coming in Indy?
    Chad Ford (1:31 PM)

    From what I can gather, Kevin Pritchard approached Bird, an old teammate, looking for some side work. Pacers asked him to scout some NBA players. No official relationship. Doesn't appear to be anything. While I'm sure Pritchard is on the hunt for a new GM gig (and I think he deserves one) I don't think there's anything going on in Indy. The owner is a big Bird and David Morway fan I'm told.

    Maybe Houston, Scola seems to be available according to the Melo to Houston rumors... Not comparing Danny to Melo, just saying... Houston desperatly wants a franchise player to replace Yao. They might be interested in Danny. They have other interesting young talents they could include in the deal...

    I think that Ford means that Mo and ZBo ( who are both on different Teams ) are other Players that are on the block...not necessarily that they are a good offer to get Granger.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    What's with these people making up these things?

    I doubt any of those players (except probably Mo Williams) have appeared to be on the market by their team's GM.

    I'd guess it depends what "on the market" means, too. It does seem like he's guessing about things often.

    Why wouldn't ZBo be on the market? The guy is a UFA next season,wants to get paid and the Grizzlies Owners are incredibly cheap. I don't see the Grizzlies re-signing ZBO if he is asking for too much. I'm guessing that OJ Mayo could probably be had as well given his recent benching.

    You forgot to include Chad's final take on Larry - "They've done a great job of rebuilding that team in the last three years. They go into the summer with some nice young players and a ton of cap room"

    He must have added that after I copied and pasted. Thank you for adding it.

    Boy, I sure hope Morway's not leaking stuff to the press. He'd have to fire himself.

    Didn't Chad respond recently to another question asking him about young talent and he said something like "what talent?"

    What a douche.

    Yeah, I definitely see the Grizz trading Z-Bo. They won't (and shouldn't) pay him over paying Marc Gasol, and he obviously won't sign for anything less than every penny that he can get. I think a team like Detroit might be interested in taking him on so they can shed some salary.

    That was Stein or Bucher, I believe. Not Ford.. Ford is pretty optimistic about our future based on everything he's said about us in the past and in this article.

    Yeah, I am about 85% sure that he has a good relationship with David Morway. Any time someone asks about up and coming GMs, Ford cites Morway, and he always, always defends the Pacers' moves during the offseason. Always has them as potential sleepers.

    Hmm...

    I always just thought he had a weird blind love for us or something.

    He might

    He's usually the only "expert" who gives the Pacers any love, so I'm not one to argue with him.

    Oh, and for the record, the biggest d-bag on ESPN.com is without a shadow of a doubt Ric Bucher. Pretentious, arrogant, dismissive. Really don't like him.

    Yeah, right after I read BringJack's reply, I remembered it was Ric Bucher. How could I forget him and his horrible soul patch thingy?

    Yeah for all the flak that Hollinger gets around here, at least he's not a douche bag of a person. He's hands on w/ everyone and he's objective in a good way..

    ..Bucher is always right, and he treats everyone like they are below him. I don't even bother to look at his chats anymore.
