    Pritchard is saying that the trade was made that way because of salaries restrictions.

    The conference must be done if Pritchard is on the radio.


    And he is saying that we won't be able to get them.

    Pritchard said on 1070 they were closely watching the amnesty situation earlier this week, but with the Hibbert and Hill signings eliminated the cap room to bid. Smeesh.

    obviously we cant get them now because we signed Roy/Hill toady I dont get why we didnt wait 2 days and go balls out on Scola. If we traded to save money I guess I dont get why we didnt use the money to get Scola a top 10 PF on a cheap discount.

    Walsh said Kevin Pritchard, Frank Vogel and Peter Dinwiddie did most of the "heavy lifting" during the free agent period.

    If he thinks he's going to play here for his entire career he's going to have to. Now way would I give Hibbert Tim Duncan type money.

    Ya'll realize the minimum bid for Scola is gonna be $10M, right? No way we were gonna get him. I think he'll clear the bid process and become a UFR. Brand was more likely but I guess we were already over the cap by then too.

    Why would it be $10 MiL? Brand was only $2.1 for similar production and a team only has to commit for 1-year with Brand.

    I liked the moves earlier in the week when I thought the team was setting things up to make an amnesty play for Brand but now have to agree with the fan frustration over the procedural bungling. Especially when the winning Brand bid was so cheap.

    Not signing your own free agents too early is basic capology 101. I don't buy the "agents threats" logic either. Roy is an RFA who was offered the max and the Pacers matched. He had no choice and got a fair deal on top of it. Hill was overpaid by a good percentage. Why else did he sign so early and didn't feel the need to shop around.

    In both cases if the agent squawks about the scheduling of the signings you tell them to pound sand and go about your business. They will forget quickly the next time or with the next client if the team puts the right numbers on the check.

    min bid was 3.3m a year 10m overall he has 3 years left on his deal. Scoal for 3.3m is beyond a bargain.

    I don't see how there could be a min. bid. He was waived via amnesty. Brand made more the Scola and was reportedly picked up for 2.1 mil for this year only. I don't see why having a longer contract makes a difference, it should change anything.

    It's some thing with the last year of his deal being not fully guaranteed, so the bid has to be high enough to cover the unguaranteed amount over the life of the contract. The amount that isn't guaranteed is just shy of 10 mil or so, so the minimum's you can bid is about 3.3.

    Okay they have the presser up on Pacers.com along with interviews.

    Okay I'm gonna say something thats a bit mean as I generally like him and his contributions. But Mark Boyle need to recognize how to dress for such an occasion where you are going to interview the TPTB. Wear freaking suit, and lose the damn bowling shirts/ air brushed tropical button ups. My gosh just looks so unprofessional, you'd never see Denari or Quinn show up like that to a presser.

    Watching the press conference reminded me of how great our starting unit was at the end of the season.

    Our starting unit was outplaying everyone when Hill entered the starting lineup. I'm looking forward to seeing that group with a little more experience playing together.

    So from the Vogel interview with Boyle our rotation looks like this.

    George Hill/DJ Augustin
    Paul George/ Lance Stephenson
    Danny Granger/ Gerald Green
    David West/??
    Hibbert/Ian

    he said Lance is gonna be the primary backup SG and in the rotation going into camp and playing with shooters wiill help. I totally agree playing Lance, Price and Djones together was just setting that unit up to fail just no shooters. I think with Green and DJ that will really help open the court offensively for Lance. I just hope he starts defending better in the PnR because in summer league it was beyond bad.

    I like sticking him at SG he impressed me with his floor general and owning the pg spot in the SL. But I think he is better suited to be the SG and with DJ here it's a no brainier.
