    Default Krylo Fesenko

    Does anybody know what is going on with him? I haven't noticed him behind the bench lately.

    There was a mention now that they have some practice time they can get him some court time in practice, along with Lance and others. If they can solidfy their place in the standings be nice to see him play, not likely, I'm guessing unless he kills it in practice.

    I was thinking the same thing. He probably wont play unless he kills it in practice. The only problem is he is not talented enough to kill it in practice or he wouldnt have been all year without a job. 7'0's with the smallest amount of talent arent shown the door before the turn 25 y/o. The dude must be really horrible.

    What's strange is I thought I read they paid him a lot more than the minimum to come to Indiana for rest of the season. Seems like this is turning out to be a blunder so far. Not enough research done on his conditioning and visa status.

    He was injured, otherwise he would have been on a team to start the year...

    It was probably neccecary to overpay so that Bos wouldn't sign him...

    1 year contract end of bench players can't really be blunders.

    Plus that amount is prorated big time based on the number of games played under contract.

    He got injured in September and was rehabilitating. He is still mostly out of game shape.

    Can stupid USCIS just work this out? How hard can it be? Obviously he's coming here to make tons of money and contribute to the economy while he's at it. Government at its finest.

    The weird thing is that Fesenko was living in Denver and not Ukraine for the most part of this season (after the Eurobasket ended in September).

    So, I have no idea why is he having visa issues.

    Having an international wife and stepson... I maybe able to answer this one. Visa's only last for so long. You have to file for perminent residency which could take a few years. Not saying his will take that long.... but thats what they told us. After paperwork was filled it took about 3 months for the process to be complete.

    Fesenko has visa issues for sure, but he also has Lou issues.

    I'm telling you guys, after hearing Frank talk about the issue there is just no way in the word he was going to give him any min. at the expense of Lou Amundson.

    I feel that if he weren't tied into both West & Tyler for team unity that Lou would be getting double the min. he gets right now because Frank just loves Lou's game.

    I think at the end of the day that this was just a giant waste of money. Nobody's fault really, just the circumstance did not work out.

    If you think it's a waste of money cuz he's not gonna play, you can at least think of it this way, he's not gonna play for Boston now either...

    I sure wish like hell , that he could play 10-12 minutes per game behind Roy in these last 10 games we have left..

    I was REALLY looking forward to seeing Fes play as a Pacer this year....

    PLUS , if he is gonna be of ANY use for us in the playoffs, he needs to get some game minutes ASAP just in case we were to need him..

    It sucks though , and I'll be very disappointed if we never get to see him play as a Pacer.. and he signs somewhere else and makes an impact next season..

    Fes is one hell of a defensive player, and he will make the whole team better defensively with him on the floor .... just as the defensive stats for Utah seemed to back up last year ..

    He could be a long term project.
    Heck we paid Soloman much more.

    We will need a athletic 7 foot big like he when we face Howard.

    I donīt consider itīs a wast of money at all.

    Well not playing him is silly, I am all in favour of giving some of Tyler's minutes (of which he is getting way to many anyway in my opinion) to Lou so Lou can play a position more prone to his size and the Fez can play C behind Roy and show us how he stops penetration, because the second Roy leaves the game... well if it wasn;t for Lou's leaping, it would be a dunkfest.

    Yeah I bet that was Larry's idea, "let's take Fesenko off the Celtics hands so we dont have to face him"

    Not sure how it is a waste of money - as I understand it we are still right at the league minimum, meaning we'd have paid the money (or most of it) out anyway. Given that, it is an extremely cheap insurance policy.

    We have no idea to what degree if he can ever help this team more than what we already have. The reality is he is not needed until we have an injury. In my opinion we have this same issue with AJ.

    But with AJ we know what we have.
