    I think that ship has sailed. Nene will go to Houston to play with Gasol if the Nets fall through.

    Houston, LA and New Orleans....

    They will keep tweaking the deal until the NBA finally caves and approves it.

    Yep. Sorry guys, I know that sounds pessimistic but it's the reality of the situation. We're not getting Nene. Nene's preferences, in order, are:

    1) New Jersey (play with Deron, get overpaid)
    2) Houston (play with Gasol, if CP3 trade goes through)
    3) Denver (extra year, more money)
    4) Indiana

    We might be able to leapfrog Denver, possibly Houston, if we max him out, but Larry (wisely) won't do that.

    You have no way of knowing this. Nene may be impressed with Bird and have us as his first choice, but just be waiting to see all his options first.
    He's voiced his frustation of being upset with Denver over the way they handled his extension offer last year, he felt disrespected being an afterthought to Melo. Don't you think he would feel the same way now with Denver? Do you think he may feel a little disrespected by the Nets being forced to be an afterthought to Howard.
    Bird has made it clear that we want him, he's not a backup plan to us.
    Why the pessimism?

    If Nene had the Pacers as his first choice, he wouldn't be waiting to see what else is out there. That's why they call it a first choice.

    The only reason for him to wait is because his first and second choices are in the process of shaking up their rosters.

    If Houston and NJ are both out of the mix, then maybe Indiana could be #3 on his list, but I;m not so sure.

    I wasn't counting on getting Nene from the beginning so I don't feel like it's unexpected.

    We had some tough competition and one of them was overpaid him more than anyone else would.

    He's taken this approach with every team, otherwise he'd be signed by now. You could pencil any other suiters in place of the Pacers in your statement.

    No, because both NJ and Houston are in flux and cannot as of now offer him a contract. He can sign one with the Pacers or Nuggets at any point, so it's logical to assume neither of them are his first choice.

    That doesn't really fly. No point in waiting if your #1 choice is already open for you.

    That's your opinion but you can't know that.
    I think Denver is on the bottom of his list and he's waiting to see what the highest firm offers he can field from other teams are? He's only taking his time and wants to weigh all his options and there is nothing wrong with that. From there he'll make his decision. If we're the highest offer on the table other then the Nuggets then I think we'll land him. I think the only way the Nuggets land Nene is with an insane near max contract 5 year Bird offer, only because he's pissed at them. Other then that I think we're on very even ground with all other suiters. But that's just my opinion and I can't know that for a fact either. I'm just not going to buy into this doom and gloom that the Pacers can't land a free agent.

    I was partially kidding.

    Trying to bring some optimism here.

    I just hope Bird makes good decisions that he feels are going to benefit us in the end.

    We'll see.

    Hopefully we'll get some good news coming our way soon.

    Adrian Wojnarowski: Boston-NO deal for David West still on hold, sources say. Waiting on NBA. C's rookies, JaJuan Johnson and E'Twan Moore discussed in deal

    Who knows how good Johnson and Moore will be, but I'll be rooting for them.

    Good deal for New Orleans. They'll be getting some young pieces back.

    Something this board lacks is optimism and considering the fact that we haven't done anything yet and already have a decent group.

    We'll see......

    I agree, I coach basketball for the Optimist club. Maybe a few PD members should think about joining. The pessimism on here is killing me.
    The only decent free agent that has signed anywhere yet has been Chandler. It's early in free agency, give Bird a chance before declaring that the sky is falling.
