    Default Boston looking to trade out of 1st round

    http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...Of_First_Round

    It's looking very likely that the Celtics trade their way out of this upcoming draft.

    Consider the following quotes, all of which come straight from Boston GM Danny Ainge:

    "It's not a strong draft. There's not a lot of players who could change a franchise."

    "The last thing I wanna do...because we're trying to win...is put inexperienced players under Doc. It's a delicate balance."
    If the Pacers were to go with the best player available at 15, it likely won't be a big man (which we "need"), so this could be a chance to get back in the first round, albeit late, with the 25th pick and snag a guy like a Jeremy Tyler to fill that need. We've got the kind of cap space now that we could buy the pick from Boston if we chose to, or we could just trade them a couple future 2nd rounders (2012, 2014)

    This seems so possible for us, especially considering Larry's Boston connection.



    Hard times for backup 2s on that roster. Rush + cash anyone?

    Rush for the 25th pick? Gives them some youth and a player who fits their style of play. Maybe being a part of that culture would bring out the best in Rush and he'd be able to fill the role that Posey did in 07-08 as a defensive ace off the bench.

    Meanwhile for us it'd free up some minutes at the wing spots and give us a chance to look at a prospect we like. An interesting player like a Reggie Jackson or JaJuan Johnson might be available at that pick.

    Heh, didn't see your post before I posted mine. Looks like we're on the same wavelength.

    I seriously doubt we're going to find a big man that fills a need on this roster at 25 in the weakest draft in a decade.

    If we get that pick, I think it would be a perfect spot to take JaJuan Johnson. At that point, he's a no brainer.

    I will be very surprised if JJ does not go before 20. I just don't see any bigman after the first 10 picks who does all the thing he does.
    But if he is there at 25 and the Pacers have that pick, you are right, it would be a no brainer.

    I think in a normal year, he is a second round pick. But this year? Somewhere in the 23-30 range sounds about right. I think he's a bit underrated on the mocks at this point, but I don't think he rises into the top 20.

    At 1 " taller, 40+#'s heavier & 3 yrs. younger, am I the only one who would lean towards J.Tyler @ 25 over JJ?

    I would much rather have Jeremy Tyler than JJ. Personally I am hoping we take Tyler at 15 honestly. Other than Tyler I just don't see anyone worth taking a shot at with 15. Maybe Selby, but I personally don't think most of the guys people are talking about will be anything more than the 9th or 10th guy off the bench for a team

    I think this pick is ours to lose. We have all the pieces to get this; Second rounders, Brandon Rush or Dahntay, money, or rights to our guys overseas.

    Then Memphis offers OJ Mayo for #25

    whats indy counter I dont think it is ours to lose many other teams have better assets.

    ...And why would they trade Mayo for the #25 pick? I think you're trying too hard to play devil's advocate here. It's essentially 2nd round talent in a decent draft.

    WE are the team with the assets now. Cap space, young players, picks, and projects galore.

    I beg to differ IMO the talent that will be there at 25 wont be much different than the 7th pick. That is why i consider it a weak draft there isn't much difference in talent in the middle of the draft IMO. There is a big drop off in talent after the top 3 picks. This draft is deep with decent players IMO just not with a lot of impact star potential players. I could see Donatas Motiejunas go as high as 8th and i could see him also going 20th. This draft is deep in a sense.


    Is 25 worth OJ ? No but they would most likley get better offers than future 2nd round picks IMO.

    It is even harder to figure out who there front court players are going to be, isn't it? Perkins, O'Neal & O'Neal are all gone. Glen Davis will likely get all the minutes he can handle.

    So then why use any of those assets on the 25th pick in a weak draft?

    Do you not think the Pacers could fare better through other means?

    There is enough youth on this team as is. They could use a veteran or two.

    If Doc doesn't want inexperienced players, there's a chance Boston will want out of the second round too. If they'll take expiring Posey back, send both him and Rush for #25 and #55. If Draft Express is moderately accurate, Greg Smith might be available that late, and he might be a project or trade asset. Also...

    EVEN IF HE IS AVAILABLE, DO NOT DRAFT BEN HANSBROUGH WITH THE 55TH PICK.

    I'd like to think Rush is worth more than the 25th pick in the worst draft of the decade.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    For those more familiar with both players: what are the differences between Ed Davis and JaJuan Johnson? They sound like very similar players, so I'm wondering how Ed was drafted higher in a stronger class than this year's.

    Pacers are losing Dunleavy,Ford,Mcoberts and Jones and maybe Foster. That is 5 players to replace.
    Two draft picks and three veterans would fill out the roster. Next year the Pacers
    could lose Posey,Price and Rush. I see room for two first round picks.
