    Default Interesting tweet from Wells

    Mike Wells:For those who say the backcourt is already crowded, it won't be crowded for long cause the Pacers want to move a couple of those players.1 hour ago
    Mike Wells:Jamal Crawford is a FA to keep an eye on w Indy. Bird has always liked him and Indy lacks a player that can get his own shot off the dribble

    If I had to guess, I would say Dahany Jones, and Brandon Rush most likely they are looking to move

    Dun? He's a FA. Easiest way to move: don't resign him.

    Some national ESPN guy goes onto make a pun with Rush's name, Jones, and Price in reply to Mike's tweet. (Might have been Hollinger) Wells shoots down Price, but does seem to confirm that the Pacers are looking to move Jones and Rush, which from perspective is sort of a "Duh!" moment.

    Dun, Price, Jones and Rush - all likely will be gone.

    I'd be surprised if we're looking to move Dahntay. I thought his veteran presence and energy is something that we coveted, particularly in the playoffs.

    Rush has to be a mortal lock though. Too bad that pick didn't pan out for us.

    I think the idea is that we can probably find another Dahntay type veteran presence. Someone who can give us a little more offensively and might be a better shooter as well.

    Unless they change the rules, and allow two basketballs on the floor during game play, there's no need to bring DJones back.

    For everything he gives you defensively, he gives it right back on offense.

    His presence and energy was so coveted in the playoffs he played a total of 50 minutes in the series.

    Am I the only one who really doesn't want to waste money on Jamal Crawford? I'd take cheaper/younger Reggie Williams any day.

    I get that the Bulls just shut us down in the closing minutes and we blew some games there because we didn't have any one on one guys, but Jamal Crawford'd be overreacting to it. The guy just chucks bad shots. It's a young squad, of course they'll have trouble scoring down the stretch in their first playoff series against the best defensive squad in the league.

    I keep flashing back to us feeding Hibbs during the 4th in the post during the Bulls series last year, and him just chucking up awkward hooks, even though he could consistently hit them earlier in the season. I just keep thinking to myself if Hibbert can wake up and have the confidence that many of us have in him, we'd feel differently about the need for a Crawford type player.

    Perhaps a year of success and confidence boosting will turn things for him. I like the odds of our coaches instilling that in him this season.

    I am certainly not a fan of Crawford, but I think his shot selection has gotten much better than it used to be. He has matured in that area.

    So we move Rush/Jones, maybe both, what do we realistically think we get? A 2nd rounder? It'd be crap for crap clearly.

    This is why I don't put a huge amount of stock into what Wells thinks..

    1. Why would you get rid of Jones? Yes, he didn't play much, but he seemed like he was the only vet that put any effort into being a vocal leader. Was he wrong sometimes, yes. But you need someone to do it. And a guy who just joins the team isn't going to get the same respect. Plus, Vogel loves him.

    2. The Price comment was funy. He could mean the Pacers weren't actively looking to trade him. It's possible. keeping a kid who had a good rookie season to see how he looks right now because he's cheap and the rest of the players seem to like him. But that wasn't the implication I got. I got, that the Pacers would likely simply cut him. Which is dumb, IMO, 80% of the teams in this league need a backup point guard. Someone would give you a second round pick for AJ. And getting something is better than nothing, even if it doesn't hurt you to cut him.

    3. He has said we've been looking to trade Rush for...ever. And it hasn't happened. We may actually want it too. But it hasn't happened. And there's no way a team wouldn't take a solid three point shooter and defender off the bench. We either over value him, or Larry doesn't want to trade Rush as much as he says he does.

    good point

    We almost traded him to the Bobcats, add to that he is on a very modest contract seems easy to move, but not sure what we could get in return

    Because you can find someone AT LEAST as good from the D-League at Rookie Minimum?

    I would much, much, MUCH rather wait and try to get Eric Gordon instead.

    That's not Jones' value. Which was my point. His value comes in that he's a vet, who has been on good teams, and he's willing to take a vocal leadership role. Something that we didn't see out of any other player last season. If you watched him, even when he was in a suit, he was the most vocal and cheering the loudest on the bench. This is actually valuable stuff for a team. I know he grated his teammates a bit with it at times, but if no one else is going to do it..I think he's someone we are better off keeping.

    He's also not that expensive and a defensive stopper if need be.

    Jones has some value as a filler in a trade. AJ on the other hand I would say has value in a trade and dump to save cash.
