    At least Brad Miller could draw some contact and score, and get some rebounds, not to mention being a passing big. Not squeaky clean, but he does have a good history with us from the glory days.

    That wouldn't be bad but, i'd rather have one of their other centers who would LOVE to come to indy Brad Miller who would re-embrace the role that Foster played during the bulls series. Wolves do have 4 centers tho

    I wish we could just bring over Stanko, but I would like to get a young guy maybe Hassan Whiteside from Sacramento.

    Agree to disagree on Darko. It's irrelevant anyways--it's not gonna happen.

    I would take an older B.Miller. At one time he said he wanted to come and play for the Pacers again. I think he might have said something about wanting to retire here.

    Plus didn't Miller say he wanted to come back to play for the Pacers again?

    If CP3 goes to the Clips and Clips sign Deandre for 10 mil per. They have to get rid of of about 16 mil if I looked at the numbers right. So, we could get in on that and get Kaman. Send Rush and 2nd pick to Hornets. Maybe send Rush, Mayo, Hans, 2nd and a 1st pick to Hornets and get Kaman and Gordon.

    How would you feel about bringing JO back for 1 year until Stanko can come over next year? Defensive big on the last year of his deal ($6M). I know he's said he'd like to retire a Pacer.

    I'm certain Boston would take a straight salary dump for him. They're paying him $12M when you consider the tax.

    There's two active threads discussing this very problem. One of them is the thread you're posting in.

    I'd say it's been noticed.

    If the Pacers are truly done with Brandon Rush (I'm not), a trade for Brad Miller works.

    They'd have to throw in a draft pick.

    And I like Jermaine. But that's the whole point of being in a position to absorb salary... you make people pay you.

    I like Brad, but...
    there was a reason other then money that the Pacers did not go all in to keep him.
    Trading one pot-head for another, esp for one much older on a longer, bigger deal is not the answer.

    This is mainly the slight problem I have with re-signing Foster. Besides the fact he's into the end of his career and injuries and games missed have become more frequent, he's never particularly been an answer to the Pacers inside.

    He's been an energizer bunny, a hard worker, a good soldier... etc.... And he's been so good at those things that the FO can't just quite try and find an upgrade at his position. We keep counting on him and expecting certain things. But he's not really the guy to give us those things.

    He's a very good rebounder statistically, but he's not a good rebounder for that one offensive rebound you need late in the game. Early in games his offense is so poor that people typically don't account for him with a defender. This gives him a lane to the basket and room to operate. But by late in the game teams have adjusted for that or they will for the 'big play' with the clock ticking down. They know to put a body on him. Also, the NBA is pretty bad about allowing players to use not only their muscles to leverage someone out of the way but they allow for little tricks which basically is taking away a guys arms for a second or pushing him off his spot just at the opportune time. And of course this get worse at crunch time because refs swallow their whistles.

    Foster is usually the guy on the receiving end of that stuff.

    You take Foster away from the team and you force the FO to work hard to fill that backup PF/C spot with a physical presence, and potentially a scoring threat too. But as it is, Foster is like that guy that the FO likes for a lot of good reasons, but maybe some of them would fade in a bigger picture view.

    So yeah... I agree with the premise we need a strong backup 5 who could contend and push for the starting spot. I'm just worried now that we've re-signed Foster it again won't be the priority it should be.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I'm not interested in JO at 6 mil, unless they are interested in taking Posey.

    I agree. I was saying (rather poorly) that I'm not sure I'd move him for Brad Miller. If Mayo is here, BRush would never see the floor anyway.

    Ok, so easy options include:

    Stanko - Time to bring him over from Europe?
    Fesenko - Free agent, made 1M last year.
    Jermaine - 6mil, would depend on what Celtics would give us to take him.

    Harder options include:
    Brad Miller - Making 4mil in last year of deal with Rockets.
    Speights - Still under contract in Philly.

    FYI Brad Miller plays for the Twolves one of the 1m trades Khan made on draft night he flipped him for Johnny Flynn and a pick I believe.

    JO shouldn't be an option IMO the guy is toast. Unless they give us the Clippers 1st rd pick then we can talk about getting JO.

    Fesenko is big and tough. Big body behind Roy. Not the most mobile though. Would give us quality minutes.
