    Clippers, are you serious? Pacers would rather try to pay Mayo $8M rather than sending a first for a controllable player like MarShon.

    Ugh!!!!!!!

    What is our front office doing?
    Can you tell me for sure that they didn't try? Perhaps the Nets just didn't want the Pacers' pick. Perhaps they didn't want to help a fellow contender in the East with one of their biggest deficiencies. Just because the Pacers don't get a deal done doesn't mean they didn't try.

    Kidd and Camby will be solid veteran additions for New York. They will be a better team than us if they can stay healthy and develop a groove.

    Yeah, but he was a starting PG last year. As long as they retain Lin, Kidd will just be coming off of the bench. He will be worth every penny as far as veteran championship leadership is concerned and will occasionally still make some big plays.

    Camby can still play. Averaged 9 boards in 59/66 games last season. He will be very valuable come playoff time. He would play very solid D on Roy if we met up with them in a series.

    It's obvious, but Larry Coon says a lot of execs have told him there's tons of dominoes that're going to fall as soon as this Dwight Howard stuff gets figured out.

    Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder's taking the same position with....CKSA Moscow. That's peculiar.

    So Dwight doesn't want to be a Laker, and Quin Snyder'd rather go to Russia. Can't wait to interact with a Laker fan.

    That could be 6 months lol. If I was the Magic I wouldnt trade him to NJ unless somehow their awful got 10X better. I would wait it out and not rush into a trade they have time and leverage on their side.


    I would think HOU can offer a rental package that is better JMO. If the Magic ship him to NJ for that package they should just stop playing for 10-15 years they wont win ****.


    On JR Smith finally the NBA is smarting up on him I cant believe how that guy got overpaid 3m is decent I guess. I still cant pay a guy the MMLE when half the time he is hurting his team.

    I agree the Magic are getting a terrible deal out of this, but seems like it's pretty close to done. Twitter says so, so it's gotta be true. Coon was saying he wouldn't be surprised if it's done within a day or two.

    Seems like the contract for Kris Humphries is the holdup. It finally does go down I really wanna see how cheap we could get Varejao.

    I expect the Pacers to sign someone tomorrow. They'll likely try to sign someone before anything loopy can happen with Roy/George.


    Mayo or Lee, tomorrow, are possibilities. The precursor will be renouncing rights to Barbosa. Keep your eyes open.

    You and me both. I'm tired of sitting around waiting for the Pacers to make moves. I'm excited that they got Roy to re-sign and everything. But I'm tired of waiting for us to do anything (I know, I know, what am I gonna do about it? nothing).

    The clips just signed Crawford, and re-signed Billups who is going to play the 2 because they still have CP3 and Bledsoe. I'm not sure how much time let alone shots Brooks is going to get if he's playing in LA.
    No matter how you slice it.....Brooks will likely be worth more of an asset than a pick in the 20s is going to be. When a Team is likely going to have limited SalaryCap flexibility for the next couple of seasons ( like where we will be in the next couple of seasons ), acquiring assets like this is essential....whether they are used as cheap talent....or as some valuable trading asset in some trade to improve the Team.

    Humphries has some leverage he is using to the fullest:

    Chris Mannix ‏@ChrisMannixSI
    To be clear, I'm told Kris Humphries is only interested in multi-year GUARANTEED deal.
    Good for him. The guy is a UFA and is being used as a piece to make a trade work. Just like any other Player.....he should be looking out for himself and securing his future. He should demand and expect a multi-year contract.

    If the Cavs only want to give him a single year contract....well, I'd hope that Mr. Khardashian will just say No.

    Refuse to believe 4-team Howard trade rumor since it involves the words "Brook Lopez" and "max deal." No team could possibly be that dumb.
    Wouldn't Brook Lopez get a higher MAX Contract since he was drafted at #10 as opposed to #17?

    If he gets more....I'm not going to complain as much about giving Hibbert $58+ mil a year.

    @KBergCBS: Players expecting full mid-level deals are now getting 1- and 2-year offers, agents say. "The money is drying up," said one.

    Let's hope we make something happen.
    As TBird suggested......the longer we wait....the better chance that we won't get stuck in a contract that we won't regret in the near future. There can be some very solid Bench Players that could be had for a reasonable price.

    He's going to be backing up Lin in the PG rotation.....he'll probably still be getting 20-24+ minutes....but he won't be chasing DWill or Rondo around....Shumpert and Lin will be doing that.

    Nope... It's based on years in the league.

    I wonder why Orlando doesn't want Marshon Brooks? With people clamoring for us to throw a first round pick for him (which seems like a no-brainier), why wouldn't the Magic just take him? I doubt it's a salary thing.

    They're trading Dwight Howard for a max contract Brook Lopez and three non lottery picks. Not much makes sense.

    The Rockets are open to discussing sign-and-trade options for Courtney Lee, who has interest from eight teams, including the Bulls. The Celtics and Pacers are the leaders to land Lee -- Chicago Tribune
    Would not mind Lee if the price is right. Only way I'd want to do a sign and trade with Houston, is if they agree to a separate deal so we can get one of their many many SF/PFs, preferably T Jones or R White. But I doubt anyone trades a rookie they just drafted...maybe this could be the first!

    Other than that, I don't see why the Pacers would want to do a sign and trade. We have holes to fill.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Kyle Lowry was an example but if you are the Pacers why don't you take a chance on a guy like him for a draft pick? 14, 6 and 4 for a draft pick? he has a better chance to be the point guard of the future over Hill and DC in my opinion.
    That's not what you said. You were talking about getting a player that will probably end up being an all star. When I say that those aren't just available for people to take, without giving up something major in return, you brought up the fact that Lowry was available for a draft pick.

    No crap.

    That's the issue here. You went from "probable All-Star" to Kyle Lowry in one jump. Unless you think Kyle Lowry is a "probable All-Star" (which he isn't anywhere close) you're not meeting the understood qualification of the type of player you're looking for.
