    Dude, Dwight Howard is NEVER going to sign in Indy. This is a bargain.

    so our current lineup looks like this:
    Collison/Hill/Stephenson/Price
    George/Hill
    Granger/Jones
    West/Hansbrough/Pendegraph
    Hibbert/Foster

    So if we add Mayo who do we trade? I don't wanna see Lance on the bench all season long again

    How do Bird rights work in the new CBA? Is this contract long enough to establish them?
    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!

    I feel ya, however the Nene thing was not going to happen. He is to much in play around the NBA.

    The West deal is small enough that in the grand scheme of things it can't hurt and can only help.

    Like you I didn't want him, but I never thought we could get this short of a contract out of him either. I was very afraid it was going to be a 4 or 5 year deal.

    I know and understand why you don't like it, but in all honesty it probably enhances us to improve our team next summer if it doesn't improve us this season on the court.

    Smart and conscious move from Larry !! It takes in consideration West's recent injury plus it doesn't hinders future plans concerning salary or re-signing our young core !!

    I was hoping we could aim higher. But an upgrade is an upgrade and he's on a great contract, so why not.

    I'll take West if he's all we can get, but I hope Bird knows for a fact that we won't be getting Nene, and has looked at all feasible trade options before signing West. As of now this is just a tweet with no official word, I'm hoping there is still time to do better.
    A healthy West is a good player, but to be really effective he needs to play next to Mutumbo type center not Roy.
    We need a 4 capable of defending the post, who scores most of his points in the post, and rebounds. West is none of those things, he's actually the opposite of those things. If it really goes down, I'm glad it's only for 2 years and hope we find a better fit by trading him next season.

    Okay.

    Larry: Dwight, if the Pacers traded for you, would you be willing to sign a long-term extension to stay past this season?
    Dwight: Nope. I'm going to play with Deron or Kobe.

    That's it.

    At least it is only a 2 year deal. $10 mil a year is still too much.

    You live a very unhappy life, don't you? How can you not be at least a little pumped about this? Not saying this guy is our solution to the PF spot, but he brings great depth, is excited about being here, and has a very cap-friendly contract.


    This is a SOLID signing by Bird. Especially with a weak FA class.

    I wonder what number he'll wear since he can't wear George McGinnis' #30.

    Good, solid signing of a good solid player. There's one thing I like about his knee injury... He got injured dunking the ball for an and-1.

    He's aggressive on offense and a good teammate. He sets awesome screens and is a good shooter and finisher.

    i thought the player had to be on a team for 3 years to get full bird rights. If that's the case still we can deal him at the trade deadline of the 2nd year if we cant keep him moving forward.

    We had to spend $10 mil more this year to meet minimum salary requirements. I'd rather have 1 good player than 3 fillers.

    Great job Pacers! Glad we were patient. We have a clearly defined second best player now and a veteran presence on a short deal.
