    Default Official Offseason Wishlist

    I know we've spent a great deal of our time talking about who we think/hope the Pacers aquire, but thought this is a great time to start since the season is over. From the playoff series, you can see the Pacers are very close from contending for a championship. Steve Kerr said multiple times last night that the Pacers need a "star" next to Danny. In reality, Indy isn't going to get a star in the offseason. Instead, acquire some players with some experience that will contribute greatly to the team. Who do you guys think we are going to go after/should go after via free agency or trade?

    My Wishlist:

    1. Carl Landry- I know there has been much discussion on him, but I believe he is the best available PF we can bring in. I think Larry was very close to acquiring him at the trade deadline (for Rush) and I think he'll go after him again. He has had only a positive impact on every team he has been on and I think would be our most consistent option as starter. Since he went to Purdue, I think he would welcome coming back Indiana.

    2. OJ Mayo- say what you want, but OJ is a heck of a talent, and the price we could get him for is a steal. A new environement should motivate him and he'd fit in well with the youth of our team.

    3. Greg Oden- yes Greg has barely played a week in the NBA, but signing him at a decent price is worth the risk because of the potential. He would not only sell tickets but would be a great backup big for years to come (maybe overtaking Hibbert, you never know)

    I can't argue with any of those, as they all COULD make us a lot better. I'm just not sure they will. Clearly, I would love to see Landry here. Mayo could be good if he is well behaved, and Oden if he somehow stays healthy. However, I doubt Oden stays healthy or comes cheap, nor does it seem Mayo will be a good teammate.

    Pie in the sky?

    Eric Gordon and Marc Gasol or Kevin Love.

    Realistic?

    OJ Mayo + some PF

    All I wish for is that we don't spend the money just to spend it. This team is probably two years away from being legitimate contenders as it is, so why not let the talent develop and trade for or draft a piece that would help the team. Of the three, I only would want to get Landry if we didn't overpay.

    I really want:

    1. A season
    2. Singleton
    3. Foster and McRoberts back.

    Landry, Mayo and Oden= same record as this year, aim higher.

    Default Re: Official Offeseason Wishlist

    I hope we resign Foster cheap and maybe McRoberts to a league minimum otherwise he can walk. He did nothing in the playoffs therefore he can get overpaid elsewhere. I wish Brandon Rush is traded for a 2nd round pick. I hope we draft Tristan Thompson with the 15th pick. I hope we sign Jamal Crawford to be our 6th man but not overpay him. I wish that Vogel is our head coach and I am back in Area55 next season.
    Here we come lottery?

    1. Hire Frank Vogel as Head Coach. I think he's a player's coach and free agents would be interested in playing for him.

    2. Sign Leandro Barbosa, Jason Richardson, or Jamal Crawford

    3. Sign Stanko Barac to be the backup Center

    4. Re-sign Jeff Foster and give him more PF (his true position) minutes

    5. Go after James Jones (if he decides to become a free agent) Sasha Vujacic, or Jason Kapono to be our designated 3-point shooter/Kyle Korver off the bench

    6. Sign Carl Landry or Chuck Hayes

    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.

    He's not the type of Starting Quality SG that I want on the Team. He's a very solid rotational SG....but not a Startinq quality SG. We have a million solid rotational wing Players...but not a Starting quality SG.

    SideShow Bob
    Kenyon Marton
    JCraw
    Caron Butler
    AlJeff

    Josh Smith.

    I think our number one issue is rebounding right now. Smith is exactly the sort of Athletic defensive big who would take a lot of pressure off of Hibbert, Offensively and defensively.

    Smith could come in as a legitimate consistent 2nd or 3rd option right off the bat, and I think his presence would facilitate improved play from Roy Hibbert. Couple that with the fact that Atlanta is looking to dump his contract, and we are one of the few teams under the cap who can trade without matching salary. There is no reason not to make this happen.

    We would be one of the best shot blocking teams in the league with that front court.

    I thought about Al Jeff, but every team he has been on gets worse from the year before! Who would have though Utah would miss the playoffs and essentially implode the franchise this year.

    But you who willing to give up. Smith is not a go to scorer. So I can't see giving Granger up for him.

    ITs not going to happen but yeah I would do that deal.

    For a team that didn't try to dump salary this year why would they do it this off season with us?

    IT would take Hibbert to get Josh Smith not Granger too by the way.

    A guy that can go get his own shot. He's better than Paul George is right now, and Would be our second best player if we got him. He can play point guard if need be, but I really think he'd be an awesome sixth man.

    I would not give up Granger or Hibbert in the deal. Although I think they would want Hibbert.

    I would look at any combination of Collison, Hansbrough, or our pick. Not all three, but any two of those three. They are weak at PG, so they might be interested in Collison. If we did trade Collison I would want to hold on to the pick because I think you might be able to flip it over to Denver for Raymond Felton.

    So I would look to trade Collison and Hansbrough for Smith, and trade our First rounder for Raymond Felton, If I were the Pacers this offseason.

    I'd love to get Oden in. I don't see how Landry makes the team any better, seems like spending money for a lateral move.

    The free agent class is weak, so I guess some trades to help upgrade the roster.

    IT would take Hibbert. Smith is a very good player and you just don't trade those away because you are a boarder line luxury tax team.

    Also Felton is worth more than a 1st round pick in a terrible draft. He will command another decent player IMO.
