    I agree 100%. He's a borderline All-Star as a big in the East. He would provide inside toughness we haven't seen since the Davis boys walked through the door.

    Dumbass

    Maybe you should try looking in the mirror with a comment of such!!! If you can't converse to me in a civil fashion, then DON'T! I don't have time for stupid childish name calling.

    I watched the game and Mayo was basically invisable. At the beginning of the year b4 Allen came, Memphis had Xavier Henry, a rookie, starting over Mayo. If Mayo is so valuable, why did Memphis get Allen, or why were they willing to trade Mayo to the Pacers when they supposedly needed his bench scoring to get into the playoffs? Obviously, Mayo isn't as valuable to them as some would like to think!

    Landry did an amazing job againts Gasol and Bynum, he plays bigger than 6'9'' like somebody else already said I rather have the Tyler/Landry duo than the Tyler/Josh duo.

    You'll lose the highlite reel dunks and the passing, but you'll get better "D", more point production, and more experience with Landry over McBob.

    I forgot to add Chuck Hayes to my list for a possible backup center/power foward.

    Landry will get you more points and he plays descent defense, but if you get rid of Josh remember Landry can't play any center at all.

    Depending the price I would love to get Landry, but I would not pay too much for him. I am not sure how he would play next to Roy either. I am a Purdue guy so I have loved Landry for a long time, but we should target more of a PF/C than just a smaller PF. The one smaller PF that I do want is Milsap. He is more of banger than Landry.

    I would do whatever it takes to get Nene. Also, I would love to get my hands on Chuck Hayes.

    Here is my question though. When does the CBA run out? Is it after the start of free agency?

    That's not overpaying. Nene's player option next year is worth $11.6m, which is in the same range as your proposed offer. If Nene opts out, he'll be looking for a bigger payday.

    o so u think this game is all about scoring? If u were watching then, u would have saw that when the Spurs to the lead by 1 in the 4th, they immediately swapped Tony allen for OJ. And while he was in the game the Grizzlies went on an 8-0 run. its not all about scoring in this game u know that right?

    I think Mayo very possibly could have been on his way to being a Granger-level player (low 20s scoring; decent overall game) before his setback this season. I think our management knows it, too, which is why they seem determined to land him (if Wells is right) while his stock is so low.

    Tony Allen plays better "D" than Mayo will ever play. Did you notice Allen's 4 steals, and the half court pass to Conley streaking towards the basket for a layup? Yes, there is more to a player than scoring. That's why Tony Allen starts and Mayo doesn't. That's why Memphis was willing to trade him at the trade deadline.

    When Memphis got Mayo, they tried him at PG which was a miserable failure. He doesn't have the tools to be much more than a scorer. If that was all there was to the game of BB that would be great, but it isn't. I'd rather have an all around player than 1 who specializes in just one aspect of the game.

    wait, wait, wait. Kevin Durant is really only a scorer. Just look at his stats, he averages like 3 assist for his career. U wouldn't want him on your team? Tony Allen only specializes in one aspect of the game, defense. Other than that he isn't an offensive threat, yea he will get dunks here and there.

    Chuck Hayes. Really all you want in a defensive enforcer from the bench, the perfect heir to Jeff IMO.

    That's correct.

    Tony Allen

    20:48 MPG... 51% FGA... 75% FT... 2.7 Reb... 2 SPG... 9 PPG

    Plays tenacious "D" with energy and has a good BB IQ.

    That to me is an all around player. "The type player I would like to see the Pacers acquire." PG is the SG of the future, but having a player like Allen just solidifies the SG spot. You don't give up backcourt "D" at the SG when either one is playing. A little extra is Allen can play some PG. With his size, that can be a definate plus at times. JMOAA

    Sigh...I'm not sure why everyone is trying to move Tyler and George to the bench.

    Our starting 5 should be...

    Collison
    George
    Granger
    Hansbrough
    Hibbert

    PERIOD. LET THEM GROW! My concern at this point would be to fill in the holes behind the starting 5. Personally, I'm not a fan of AJ Price, but I would LOVE to see Lance Stephenson get some PT to see if he can fill our "big" PG role. I would prefer to keep D. Jones, because the man can play some defense, and can get to the FT line. I like Josh McRoberts, but my preference would be to get a tougher PF behind Tyler. Dunleavy could be worth a resign to give the second unit some offense. Foster's time has passed, so I would rather see us go younger at the backup C spot. The players that I would like to see Indiana go after IF we're not chasing a blockbuster trade....

    Tyson Chandler (Yep, I would put him on the bench)
    Rodney Stuckey
    Jose Juan Barea
    Chris Wilcox
    Louis Amundson
    DeAndre Jordan
    Mario Chalmers
    Mike Bibby
    Kris Humphries
    Spencer Hawes
    Aaron Brooks
    Samuel Dalembert
    Andrei Kirilenko (Slide him to the PF spot)

    There's nothing wrong with being a bench player. Let Tyler become one of the best bench players in the league right up there with Lamar Odom, Jason Terry, and Jamal Crawford two years from now.

    Let George grow from the bench as he's not ready offensively yet. When he is ready let him blossom. He gets way more touches off the bench too.

    We need upgrades at the two and four, and if we move George and Tyler to the bench we can potentially have one of the best benches in the NBA depending on who the backup point and small forward is

    Ad Greivis Vasquez to the wishlist, good ball handler, good floor general, amazing floor vision and he is 6'5'' I would trade a 1st round pick for him and never look back.

    We competed with the Bulls because we have good/solid role players, we don't need any more of those.

    What we need is a few players at about Grangers level.

    My wishlist would be NeNe and Iggy. And I'd give up anyone not named Paul George, Danny Granger, or Roy Hibbert to get them. (this is a wish list..)

    REALLY??

    Just b/c YOU never saw it doesn't mean it is so! You must not have seen any Celtics games where he played PG b4 Rhondo came. He was more of a combo guard b4 his injury where as now he plays SG.

    Memphis tried their grandiose experiment with Mayo playing PG, and it failed. Mayo could play some PG in a pinch too if it was necessary.

    We can discuss Mayo vs Allen until the cows come home, and neither of us are going to change our minds or our stances on the issue. So I don't see any need for further exchange, have a great afternoon watching the Celtics and Heat game.

    I still don't want anything to do with him, so it worked out for me.
