    Default OT: Lakers decline option on Rush

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=1913529

    Sorry if this has already been posted. Kinda surprised about this since he isnt getting paid that much and when he's on can fill it up from 3. Although he plays zero D and doesn't bring anything to the table when his shot isnt falling.

    That is suprising, actually. Closer to shocking. I thought he had had some pretty nice games for them. To not pick up the option on a promising rookie? Weird. Wonder if there was something behind the scenes.

    I'm so glad we didn't draft him, though. Say what you want about I.Thomas, but he sure is a good judge of draft talent.
    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!

    Yea, it's not like quality 3 point shooters are a dime a dozen in the league right now. Maybe the Pacers can pick him up for cheap next year.

    Without Shaq drawing the double team, Rush is no longer going to get those open perimeter shots. That has drastically decreased his value for the Lakers and how they're currently structured.

    We definitely made the right choice in drafting Freddie over Rush, and I was a Rush fan.

    Does ANYONE still think we should have taken Rush over Freddie?

    LA opts not to pick up the option on Rush but we've got Bender in his 15th year.... or is it his 6th year?

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
