    Good enough for the Lakers, but not good enough for us...

    He got the most the Lakers had to offer. The so called "mini-MLE" that came about in the new CBA.

    Had bigger offers, the Lakers were just too good of a situation to pass up.
    Good move. He's young and will get other offers. That situation should highlight his positives and set him up for his next contract.

    I still think you were wrong, though. Other teams might have offered more, but he was never gonna get Big Baby money.
    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!

    You think Laker fans are happy with replacing Lamar Odom with McRoberts?

    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    F Josh McRoberts to sign two-year deal using mini mid-level exception with @lakers, source tells Y! Avg 7.2 pts, 6.2 rbs w/Indy last season.

    So I guess Josh really was going to get the mid level exception after all...

    You're right. He didn't get an offer like Big Baby did.

    But Baby getting that offer was a major selling point for LA, and they knew it.

    oh well i said 3/9 or 10 would do it to have him in Indy, and it's an amount i gladly would have given him, but that is because i think he has a lot more upside them Hansbrough, than again, I'm certified, so who cares

    SO the Pacer let McRoberts walk for only 2.5 million? Crazy. I wish the Mayo Deal would have gone down.

    But this is probably the best thing for McBob and us as fans, as we now get to see him 29 times on Prime time TV this year alone, not counting the playoffs. So we'll get to see him develop in LA. With Odom gone, he has a chance to secure some real minutes playing with great players, and a great coach over there. The guy i wanted coaching the Pacers.

    Obviously McRoberts isn't being brought in to "replace" Odom's production. But honestly, if I had to chose between a 32yo $9mil Odom or a 24yo $3mil McRoberts, I'd take McRoberts. McRoberts continues to be highly undervalued around here.

    Not even close to what I meant.
