    The Pacers likely won't add anymore players to the roster before the start of the regular season.

    Of course they could change their mind and resume looking for a scorer if they can't make jump shots again tonight vs the Bulls

    Not surprising. We still have time before the deadline if the scoring becomes a big problem.

    Our arena, their arena, Rucker park, it just doesn't matter. We're bigger, longer, younger, faster, and hungrier.

    So I guess the Michael Redd visit did not go well?

    Redd no longer has it anyone who watched him last year would tell who he should retire. He is a very bad player at this stage of his career.

    If we are going with an old shooter im sure Reggie Miller is a better player at this point in time the Redd.

    It is sad because he was a hell of a player when healthy but his knees are more than just shot they are toast.

    Someone on the bench is going to have to step up and bring some scoring from the perimeter.

    Not you, Dahntay. Go sit back down.

    I don't trust Wells.

    Brunner said today on 1070 he thought we would add more scoring at the wing postition. This makes sense considering we were looking to do so before we traded away a wing.

    Trade deadline could bring a bounty too, maybe, if needed.

    Redd played a total of 61 games in the past three seasons. He isn't the answer to anything.

    At least we have Kobe 2.0 off the bench for us.

    Did he offer any possibilities? What wing players are still out there that would be worth adding right now?

    I am ok going into the season with what we have. If we continue to have the shooting night that we did last game maybe 10 games into the season, then yes we need to look for that scorer.

    I trust Wells more than Conrad.

    Hopefully it's true. We should see what our roster is made of.

    Affalo got paid big time in Denver.

    If JR Smith gets released from his team in China would the Nuggets have the money to bring him back?

    Or.... do the Pacers have enough coin remaining under the cap to throw him a large enough deal to bring him here?

    Keep those 2 spots open. There will likely be movement before the trade deadline. Our roster spaces and cap room will allow us to pick up a much needed player or two...hopefully more draft picks.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    That means more minutes for Lance to prove himself. More minutes for Hill and PG (YAY!).

    It'll be good to go with a 9 man rotation. Paul plays more minutes at both SG/SF.

    I can't imagine Vogel continuing to play Black Hole.

    Let our current boys play and learn.

    Let's not clog up the roster with retreads and borderline talents.

    Just not worth it this early in the season.

    Noone game changing available anymore.

    No possibilities offered.

    I would think the staff thinks Lance can fill in okay at the role that they thought Crawford would play/groom Lance to be?

    I like this mode of thinking.
    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 am probably in the minority here but

    I think Dhanty Jones is a lot better basketball player than given credit for here

    The DJ that showed up in the playoffs last year I would take on my roster anytime

    I think this will be a breakout year for DJ and his scoring and attacking the basket will do wonders off the bench. He is a solid defender who had career numbers last year. He can play, and he soesn't have the "deer in the headlights" look
    Sittin on top of the world!

    I like DJ, but he'll try to do too much on offense. I think with Tyler coming off the bench, that won't happen as much. Just need to define guys roles a bit more. I think too often, guys will just stand around on offense and are a bit passive, so DJ takes things in hand. Again, with JOB out, hopefully that won't be an issue.

    I don't think we could get JR Smith but who knows.

    I don't think JR would fit in with what we're trying to build here personality-wise.

    Not you, Dahntay. Go sit back down.
    At this point we have to hope Stephenson improves and takes over the backup SG spot.
