    This is the first of the 3 threads, so I guess I'll post here.

    I liked Rush, but this would be pretty good for us. Can he play C at all?

    He's a good energy guy. I was advocating signing him last year. I wouldn't be upset.

    He is a very undersized center. Very.

    I really like this move for the Pacers.

    I don't think Amundson can play much center. Still not a bad swap. I believe Bird tried to sign him when he was a free agent last. He fits right in with the other big men on this team. He is a hustle player. I love that. You can't have too many guys like that on your team IMO.

    Wish Brandon well but glad the Pacers are moving on.

    My friend said he played C primarily in gsw, but is more comfortable at pf. Id imagine we will play him more at C though as we needed another body there.

    for those who dont know much about amundson, dont expect anything. hell hustle the entire time on the court, plays average post d and will grab a few boards. he does have a nonstop motor, but leads to no production. at the very best, he will be a body on the end of the bench, which is what we needed. sorry to see rush go though.
    hes a more reckless jeff foster.

    Wow, what a waste of a trade. We need a back-up center who can score a little, so we trade for a PF who can't score at all.

    He played some center in Phoenix.

    I don't like this.

    Coach Jackson was talking about defense. He got it.

    I'll miss Rush, but this seemed inevitable given how many times Bird has tried to trade Brandon. Wish we could have shipped off Dahntay instead.

    I think is possible that Pendergraph is not healthy enough to play? I always liked Lou but he is not a center.

    What back up center could the Pacers have traded Rush for?

    Decent signing if true, him and Tyler are going to destroy people with their hustle.

    He is enough of a center for what we are asking of him. He will playing behind hibbert, west, hansbrough, and foster, maybe pendergraph.

    This trade was more to get rush out of here than anything imo.

    why trade rush for this though? we have a roster spot, right? you can find an amundson type player in the d league. we still have money to spend on free agents.

    Because rush doesnt want to be here abd larry doesnt want rush to be here. This trade has little to do with bringing in Lou and everything to do with shipping Rush out.

    According to 82games.com, he spent about 25% of his playing time last season at center. I haven't watched him play much (who has?) but he looks like a good shot blocker and a near elite offensive rebounder. I'll take it.

    I have no idea, but that wasn't my point.

    My point is we traded for a 29 year old 6'9 PF, who will most likely play less than he has in the past (less than 15mpg). It would have been better to keep Rush than trade him for this type of player. if we were going to trade Rush trade him for a young player who might still turn into a decent player, or a player that brings something to this team that is needed. If that is not possible I would rather keep him on this team, and keep Jones on the bench.

    Where are you getting that Rush doesn't want to be here from?

    I will say that with Foster, Tyler, and Amundson we will probably cause the most bruises and black eyes in the NBA. Lou fits Vogel's smashmouth basketball to a T.

    Jones is fine in small doses, and this is the worst thing about the trade.

    He might be one of the worst offensive players in the entire league.
