why don't we try to get all the local NBA players from Indianapolis to come back to Indy? I have seen several people post about EG coming back to Indy, but why stop with him? sure he is probably the best of the local guys, but i think it would be great for the city to try and get as many local kids as we could. These guys would hopefully bring some passion and pride by playing for their hometown. As long as it makes sense, i think we should target the local kids in the near future.
Greg Oden- sure his career has been a bust because of injuries. maybe if he came here he could stay healthy and turn his career around? I think the risk is worth the reward.
Courtney Lee- even though he is young, he is already becomming sort of a "journeyman". He is playing on his thrid team in just his third season. If the price is right, why not have him settle down as a Pacer?
Eric Gordon- would love to see him become a perennial all-star wearing a Pacer uniform. We could potentially have the money to sign him long-term.
George Hill- has made a name for himself playing in San Antonio, and is probably due a hefty pay raise whenever is rookie contract is up. not sure we could pry George away from the Spurs.
Mike Conley- just got a contract extension from memphis. we probably couldn't get him unless we traded something significant for him. Not sure he would make sense.
Jeff Teague- hasn't really proven himself, but did play well in his last game against the Pacers. Once his contract is up, and the price is right, we could possibly make a run at him.
Rodney Carney- a solid verteran presence. couldn't hurt signing him to the league minumum.
Gordon Hayward- i'm not going to say anything about him. too polarizing here on PD.
