    Green is better and has higher upside than the others, but I think Collison could have gotten more.

    This. I'll also agree with daschysta that DC could have gotten us more. But let's see how everything plays out first.

    For those saying it depends on Augustin, if we DO get him would that lead you to believe we improved our team today?

    If we don't get him we now are missing a huge piece to the bench.

    It completely depends on if we got Augustin.

    If we got Augustin, I like what we've done.

    If we don't get Augustin, I'll drink til I vomit.

    Roy Hibbert, Ian Manihimi
    David West, Tyler Hansbrough
    Danny Granger
    Paul George, Gerald Green
    George Hill, DJ Augustin

    Paul George/Gerald Green can slide to SF and George Hill can slide to SG. I would actually like that roster a lot to be honest. I first read Mahinimi trade without reading the other stuff and I was really disgusted at first. I feel like getting DJ is a must though or another point guard obviously.

    I think so, the reason Miami won was because our bench was built for offense and couldn't get a bucket. Jones was pretty much the only quality defensive player, everyone else being more on the offensive side. I know Lou is/was a fan favorite, but I wanted to look away everytime the ball was near him, not a shooter and got thrown on defense. Plumlee can be better I think, just because he can score better and can rebound, but I hope he can improve his on the ball defense. Tyler (if he stays) I think can still be a serviceable player on both sides of the ball, he just lost his confidence when he was moved to the bench. He has a good mid-range and hustle that is rare to find. Don't forget Tyler and Lance are young as well as didn't have a training camp. It's too early to tell if this will be an improvement off the bench with/without DJ, but also with the improvement out of the starting 5 the Pacers could get away with a weaker bench as well.

    short term, we got better, but long term we didn't.

    How can you be so sure? Green and Mahinmi both have upside and are pretty good right now. Can you imagine Green and PG running the lanes? Just throw it up and get a picture of the results!

    Alot of people are severely downplaying Green. Great tools, and he scored 13 ppg in only 24 minutes in NJ last year, great upside, there is a reason the Nets are so devasted to have lost him.

    They forked over $100 million+ in player contracts this offseason. Something tells me if they really wanted him, they would have kept him. The fans are upset, because they are New York fans, and that's what they do.

    They couldnt keep him, not while maxing Lopez... And making the trade for JJ... They did not have Green's Bird rights... FYI

    Clearly, we are better. Our backup PF/C was our worst position last year. Ian is an upgrade over Amundson. Lou's problem was that he had a scorer's mentality, but was usally lousy offensively. Nothing more unintentionally humorous than when Lou would mess up alley-opp dunks.

    I accidently voted for worse but definitely meant we got better! We're bigger, more athletic, more versatile and have pieces that compliment one another more. We also got young, cheap players that can contribute, but still have upside. If we can get DJ and/or another PG, and another veteran, I think we've improved

    Man I am glad that I will no longer have to watch PF's try to play Center and SF's try to play PF.
    I know some of you will agree with that!

    Significantly worse. The Dallas trade will go down as one of the worst in Pacers franchise history.

    The Green signing is the only thing I like.

    Ian is nothing special, and he has a four-year deal. It also makes the Plumlee draft make even less sense, and it was a terrible pick to begin with.

    And we didn't even get a lousy draft pick to go with it. Horrible, horrible trade.

    Yes, he has a 4 year deal. A very cheap 4 year deal for a rotation playing big man.

    For everyone that is saying we are got better tonight because we set ourselves up for a bigger better trade remembers we are talking about the pacers right??? The same team that's had cap space the last two trade deadlines and only had barbosa to show for it. Love the pacers and will root for them till the day I die but this was a bad trade.
