Thread: How bad would it be to get Baron Davis and Varejao?

  1. #1

    Default How bad would it be to get Baron Davis and Varejao?

    I think we can all agree that Baron is some good and a lot of bad, but Point Guard play last year was appalling and I think we've definately got the cap room to take the salary hit for what I think, unfortunately is a big up grade at point guard slot. I will admit I'm going through a phase where I think Varejao is perfect addition to our roster and I think we can get a package together in taking Baron's Salary to get him. What I do know is DC was awful and we've got no one else that's even close to being a starting PG in this league.

    No. Look at the chain gang team of '04-'05. Now look at this team. Currently our only bad seeds are Rush and Lance. Does this really need a further explanaton?

    B-Diddy is fat & has been a problem in the past, but Sideshow is NICE!
    Don't see CLE giving Sidesow cheap, & they can amnesty B-Did if they want.

    Could just trade DC, Rush, and a 1st to Memphis for Mayo and have him run the point. Or sign Stuckey to run the point and trade DC for something else.

    Wonder what Cleveland'd say about Hans + a lotto-ish protected 1st for Varejao.

    I've been beating the Varejao drum for years, I would love to get him here, the same thing with Baron Davis, I'll wait for Cleveland to cut him so we can get him.

    I agrre a deal including Sideshow would be expensive and BD is fat and effort is a big?, but if I were Cleveland I'd revel in the opportunity to trade BD and Amnesty Boobie. I think Maybe a package of Posey,Rush, Collison and the rights to Stanko gets the conversation started. I would expect to lose Tyler in the end and then resign McBob.

    I'll take a run at Stuckey, but I don't really have any intrest in Mayo. The only way I'd take Davis is to get Varejao.

    I'm curious to see if Cleveland will cut Baron Davis or not. I don't think they will.

    Only if they want to clear the way for Irving right away.Besides Irving, they have Sessions and Gibson, who are good as backup and 3rd stringer.

    On the other hand, they're so poor in the wings that their best lineups will be with Irving+Davis in the backcourt. And Davis can be an useful mentor for Irving. And they have little to gain in terms of cap space by using the amnesty this year, they wouldn't get enough room to add a quality free-agent anyway. They have the TPE if they want to add someone via trade. If I were them I'd keep Davis.

    Dan Gilbert would be happy to let Herb Simon pay for all of Baron Davis' awful contract instead of having to use the amnesty clause on him.

    If a player gets traded, can the new team amnesty the player? I don't remember the dates the amnesty rule for this year ended or the rules for the new CBA

    Baron Davis is a locker room cancer and is lazy. Sounds like we had some of those issues in are own locker room last year no need to add another. Varejao is a scrapper and descent defender if he comes back in shape and healthy so might not be bad adding him to come off the bench if we dont bring Foster back.

    Personally I like are team if Roy becomes a man and starts rebounding like a big guy should.A Shooting guard that can shoot not named Dunleavy would be nice, I like Mike but he cant guard a water bucket.

    I know I just posted a video talking about Rush but what makes he and Lance bad seeds?

    As much as I'd like to see Andy in a Pacers uni, I draw the line at having to take Baron to get Andy.

    This has epic fail written all over it.

    Not realistic to expect Varejao to be 100% this year due to foot surgery. And Baron has a reputation to start seasons overweight, so the extended layoff may make him useless this year.

    We'd have to eat a lot of salary to acquire two players that may end up coming off the bench.

    How bad would it be?

    Pretty bad.
    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!

    Baron Davis is one of the last players in the league I want to see play for the Pacers. I don't care if he was playing for free. I wouldn't want him.
