    Default Does Barbosa re-sign with us?

    Yay or nay? Think he would accept a new cheap offer from us to give us a DJ/Barbosa/Green backup lineup? He was huge for us post ASB but fell off a cliff in the playoffs.

    I think that Lance is ready to have a good season for a backup wing, but he would most certainly struggle in the playoffs, more than any player on our team. Well unless if Hansbrough is going to be playing. I think Barbosa has a better chance of a successful playoff outing than Lance.

    I don't think he re-signs with us but I assume that our backup shooting guard minutes are eaten up by Gerald Green and George Hill.

    So, neither I guess?

    You need more depth than that, what if Hill gets hurt?

    I think Barbosa is going to demand too much money to have him as a third string SG.

    We shouldnt be paying a third string more than $3 million, IMO

    That's the emergency scenario where Stephenson plays.

    Well we didn't extend his qualifying offer so we'd only be able to give him the vet minimum, right? So honestly it's moot anyway, I think.

    Yeah, he was terrible

    19 min, 10 points on 57% shooting, 2 steals, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 TO.

    Sorry, I just don't mind that he struggles against Chris Paul/Deron Williams/Lebron, especially when playing out of position like he was last night. Sure, he wasn't good in the playoffs, but that doesn't mean there isn't a role for him on this team going forward. I for one wouldn't mind a guy playing 10ish minutes a night that won't be afraid to shoot/give guys a breather. Not to mention that he is by far our best finisher in transition, seeing as the rest of the team struggles with dunks/layups when going hard to the rim.

    Like everything else, it all comes down to how much/what he thinks his role should be.

    We have Lance, so if he doesn't want vet min. then I'm ok with that.

    When Boyle interviewed Vogel after the Hill and Hibbert presser, Vogel said that Lance will be the backup SG.

    If he would be willing to sign for the vet minimum I'd say yes. I don't think he will though. I originally said yes but someone will offer more to him. I like the idea of Lance getting more minutes.

    I thought the lady from Area 55 said that Frank said Leandro was coming back, as confirmed by another PD poster... now if I can't trust a tweet from Barb from Area 55, who can I trust.

    I think he could be useful, but I don't think we're going to sign him. There isn't enough cap. Tyler & West both expire when this year's done, we'll need to resign at least one of them.

    I hope not.


    P.S. Can we stop making poll answers that include things completely irrelevant to the question, like "Lance is our back-up SG". Not everyone who thinks Barbosa shouldn't or won't come back thinks Lance is going to be or should be the back-up SG.

    He's obviously not what he used to be. If we can get him for the vet minimum then I'm fine with it. I'm not sure if I like our backup sg situation right now unless Lance really steps it up this year.

    There's no future with Barbosa. He is what he is at this point. If Stephenson is going to contribute, and the Pacers believe in him, then you gotta throw him out there and go with it. Any minutes given to Barbosa that would take away from Stephenson's development are wasted minutes, in my opinion.

    Wouldn't mind just cutting ties with him. I honestly feel like Lance will have a lot larger role on the bench this season. Glad to hear Frank say he'll be our backup 2. Should be interesting...

    Whether he resigns or not, I think a lot of people on here are too critical about Barbosa. He absolutely did get killed trying to guard Wade (but don't many?). He also shot the ball lousy against the Heat.

    That said there were plenty of games where he sparked offense on the bench and was a great contributer. Don't get me wrong, I am about 99% we won't resign him, but he is far from the bum that many want to perceive him as after Miami.

    I wish there were more than 2 choices in the poll. Neither option is especially appealing unless Barbosa was willing to take a super cheap deal. I still see an outside chance of one more FA signing (we still have the MLE right?) or perhaps trading Tyler for something. At least I hope so...

    I'm ready to see what Lance can do. It's sink or swim time, and I'm wanting to see if Lance is worth it. Personally, it would be better to see if Lance is capable; than to let him rack bench minutes, and he goes to another team and ends up being a 6th man award candidate. Even if he fails, lets see if he has IT!
