    My first ever post on this board was about wanting Iverson on the Pacers.....Boy did I ever get flamed for that one.....
    It was a tongue-in-cheek remark. However, I don't think it would hurt to bring him in for a workout to see if he still has any game left. Even if he's only 50% the player he was in during his MVP season, he could help. He couldn't be any worse than DJ Augustin.

    If nothing else, it would get a lot of the casual fan's and the media's attention. If I was the GM I'd do it for the press and ticket sales alone.

    2010 draft. And yeah, I was really high on him and wanted him too. Of course we got George with that draft.
    Oops, yeah, my bad. I was hoping we'd land an additional pick in 2010 to get Bledsoe.

    Orlando probably doesnt have much use for Al Harrington. Bring him back again.

    It is pathetic that both he and Dunleavy sound like good ideas...okay maybe not really Dunleavy. None of the parties involved(Pacers, Bucks, or Mike) would want that but on basketball premise alone he could actually help. Al might be pretty good for this team without Danny. Even with Danny as a backup he would be great.

    This really does feel like bizarro world, trying to rationalize bringing him back....AGAIN.

    I think you need to just run with Green, Lance and Young and let them develop, as well as Paul developing as the main guy.

    Probably for the best in the long run, trial by fire and all that. If they can stay in the playoff hunt. Clearly my 58 win season dream is DOA.

    No one you can add is really going to have a huge impact above what is already going on, just more thrashing of roles to muddy the water.

    Bite your tongue, 3rd time isn't a charm! The Pacers are shooting too many 3's now, and bringing in Harrington will just add to the problem.

    Kenyon Martin is still out there? He could help some much needed scoring down low and he's a plus defender and rebounder....all the things Hans is not.

    I'd still like Reggie Jackson on OKC. Bledsoe would be nice. I just don't see how we would get anyone without trading picks. Then again, next year's draft isn't looking very promising outside the top few spots.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    I also think josh Howard would be great for this team he is perfect for that starting spot IMO he does a bit of everything and has experience he can fill the gap of granger and be a valuable backup when he returns

    GRANGER!! FOR THE WIN.............. IT'S GOOD!!!!!

    With Danny Granger out of the Indiana Pacers’ lineup, free agent Mickael Pietrus is an option for the organization but is far from officially signing a contract and remains in discussions with a few other teams, agent Bill McCandless told RealGM on Thursday.

    While McCandless admits he has been in contact with general managers across the NBA, he insisted by phone: “A report goes out and everybody thinks Mickael is on a plane headed for Indiana. Everybody needs to hold their horses.”

    Over the past week, Pietrus’ camp has seen a spike in interest for the veteran swingman, who has career averages of 8.4 points and 3.1 rebounds and is well regarded as among the stellar perimeter defenders in the league.

    The health of Pietrus’ knee has been perceived as an issue, but McCandless stressed he is 100 percent healthy following an offseason of intensive rehabilitation. Pietrus’ representatives are confident a deal will be found soon.

    If the Pacers indeed decide they will sign a small forward due to Granger’s absence with left knee tendinosis, Pietrus and Josh Howard are the leading candidates.

    Thing is, PF has been maybe our most consistent position. It's been the 3 and the 5 that have killed us.

    Roy has been bad at the 5, Mahinmi has been worse.

    David has been great at the 4, Tyler has been more than serviceable as the backup. Earning FTA's, playing shockingly good defense, bringing useful energy. Unless you ran several lineups with David and Kenyon at the 4 and 5 I don't see the value of bringing him in.

    What we need is someone to replace Young/Green in the starting lineup, someone that we could put next to Hill and George. Josh Howard/Pietrus fill that need.

    I'd love to see a DJ/Hill/PG lineup, see if that helps DJ bust out of his slump.

    What about picking up another guard to move some people around.....I believe that Jordan Farmar is still available....That would allow Hill to the 2, PG24 to the 3....free Hill up to be a spot up shooter instead of a creator for others, and pray that PG24 breaks out....

    I like this idea. Not permanently, but over the short term/ while Dannny is out.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Better to stick with the bench guys we have now (it's only been 5 games and when the starters are underperforming it's a gigantic stretch to make the bench into the scapegoat) than to bring in scrubs like Pietrus, Josh Howard, etc. Those guys were OK five years ago, but if you want to look at how awesome they would be for our team take a look at Sam Young.

    While the Indiana Pacers have been linked to players such as Mickael Pietrus and Josh Howard this week, they do not have immediate plans to make a roster addition, according to a source.

    It was revealed earlier this week that Danny Granger will miss three weeks because of knee tendinosis. The Pacers are 2-3 through their first five games. They finished last season with the third-best regular season record in the Eastern Conference and took an early lead in their semifinal series against the eventual champion Heat.

    With Granger out, Frank Vogel has used a combination of Gerald Green and Sam Young at small forward. Granger, an All-Star in 2009, is owed more than $13 million this season. Granger is expected to remain around the team while he rehabs his knee so that the training staff can monitor his progress.

    The Pacers might want to revisit the talks with Pietrus, Josh Howard, and Micheal Redd to see if they talk them into joining the team.

    They need another scorer with experience and one who isn't afraid to make plays down the stretch. I think that's why Bird was so interested in OJ Mayo and Jamal Crawford. They both had down seasons last year but look how well they're playing now on their new teams. They play with zero fear and can create their own shots. The Pacers miss Danny but they also miss Barbosa off the bench.

    How is it that the TWolves keep swooping in and signing guys that the Pacers were reportedly interested in? When and how did they become a hot destination for Free Agents? First Brandon Roy and now Josh Howard.


    Maybe I should've put that in green. Brandon Roy is looking like a bad decision and I really didn't want Josh Howard.

    Wolves have done a monster job rebuilding. AK and Shved were incredible signings, is Khan still running the show over there?

    Do you guys think there is any chance the FO is planning on moving Roy when they can (January 15th) ala' Nene last season?

    It just seems like the team will struggle to grow with that contract, period. I personally think Roy will figure it out, but the inactivity thus far makes me wonder if there is a plan in place, and they are just waiting on the right moment.

    No way they accept going from a #3 seed to a lottery team, if that's what happens. At least, I hope there's no way.
