    Much rather have Delonte West over Pietrus even with the crazy. West is clearly the better player. We could use his ball handling and defense.

    After considering what's out there, I think Lance breaking out is our best chance.
    I have little problem with losing while giving Lance and OJ the chance to develop and prove themselves. But my guess is that the FO would much rather get a proven FA talent to continue to win games rather then develop Lance and OJ.

    If that happens then you can assume big things in the offseason. Donnie doesn't really make moves in the middle of the year. Plus, just don't know who you'd be able to get that would make a noticeable enough difference to make it worth breaking up one of the most promising cores in the NBA.
    Yeah, I really don't think that we will trade any core pieces.

    Wilson Chandler has played worse than Gerald Green has thus far this season.

    Ok, but you OMITTED something very important... his CAREER STATS!

    13.7 PPG... 45% FG... 32% 3pt... 78% FT... 5.2 REB... 1.8 AST

    Not to mention he's been a starter which is what the Pacers need, nor is he long in the tooth.



    I'll play the "it's only 4 games in the season" card for his season stats as so many do.

    Yeah...trading a Player unless it's an "end of the bench" Player would be a panic move that makes little sense.

    Cuz I'm pretty sure that the Nuggets would not take any of the non-core Players for Wilson Chandler.

    The past two seasons (since he's been back from China) he hasn't played all that well (9pts on 39% shooting last year.)

    He does have some starter experience, but he's also come off the bench just as much.

    Also, a lot like what everyone has criticized Green for, he put up good numbers on a bad team all those years in NY.

    I like him as a player, but I want to see him come back from his injury before picking him and his contract up. So far, he doesn't look like the same player. (I watched the Nuggets and Pistons play last night on league pass)

    If he can return to pre-injury/pre-China form--why not! (as long as it were a reasonable trade)

    Very interesting question! A number of Pacer players can't be traded due to FA signings. I guess I never really considered which Pacer players are available to trade. Hm, I really don't have a good answer. Maybe, Wilson Chandler is just wishful thinking on my part now from last season.

    This won't be popular, but I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Terrance Williams.

    I can't believe what I'm about to ask! Is Shawne Williams on any NBA teams?

    I'm not advocating to sign him, just asking. He's more of a stretch 4 than a SF. I'm not sure, but I think he played a little 5 for the Knicks too when Amare was injured.

    How about we don't panic, as this is how we have set up our team for these exact type of circumstances. We signed six wings for our roster, why don't we rely on our depth to step up and learn to make plays? That to me sounds like the best answer, since they will be rotation players even when Granger gets back.

    START LANCE!!! PLEASE! MOM THE MEATLOAF! F**K! I NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING UP THERE!

    I still have faith Gerald Green will be fine , averaging around 14 ppg. His first games were horrible but the last 2 he's 10 for 19 from the field, scoring 26 points with 11 rebounds off the bench. Can he replace Danny totally? No but he will be better than his 1st 2 games.

    SMALL FORWARDS: James Anderson, Renaldo Balkman, Derryck Byars, Da'Sean Butler, Gary Forbes, Ryan Gomes, Joey Graham, Donte Greene, Mike Harris, Lazar Hayward, Damion James, JaJuan Johnson, Jason Kapono, DJ Kennedy, Adam Morrison, Jamario Moon, Larry Owens, Bobby Simmons, Alando Tucker, Bill Walker and Shawne Williams.

    Those are the current available Free Agent Small Forwards other than Pietrus. Out of that slush pile of players, Gary Forbes, JaJuan Johnson, Jason Kapono (preferrably the Kapono of 2008-09), and Ryan Gomes are the only players that could help a little. It's pretty slim pickins.

    Micheal Redd, Josh Howard, and Mehmet Okur interest me a little because of their experience. This really is terrible news even if one of these players is signed.

    Terrence Williams just signed with a Chinese team in the CBA. I wish we'd have known the severity of Danny's knee trouble two weeks ago.

    No to Mickael Pietrus, have to be better options out there.

    I just like the fact that the Pacers are looking.
    It doesn't exactly scream confidence in the players we have to play more minutes when Granger is hurt.

    IMO it is not a good time to start looking to add players to a full roster.

    After all, it's only 4 games.

    He was ok on the Knicks, but he's more of a full time PF now if his time in NY is any indication. And he followed up that season with a stinker on the Nets.

    It would be a major learning year for Lance, and I don't think he would help win many games this year if asked to contribute in a huge role. But as a move for the future? Heck yeah, I'm down with that. In part because I didn't really buy the Pacers being a genuine contender this season, even with Granger.

    I can handle taking the mistakes and losses if our team substantively improves.

    Maybe the Pacers front office is reading PD and are freaking out, somebody should make a big sign to let them know that "has only been 4 games", the sign should have removable numbers just in case

    You know as well as I know that under D'Antoni......everyone is a 4 or 5. I'd rather take my chances on TWill....he brings something else to the table....whereas Shawne doesn't do anything that George or Green can't do.

    You don't think that if KP/Walsh called him up in China that he'd sneak onto a plane and fly to Indy the next day?

    Kapono wouldn't be a bad option would he? We desperately need some shooting....

    Do we need a shooter that can hit the 3 ( and not much else ) or a Scorer?

    I'm inclined to get a Player that can do what other Players can't. That's why I'm advocating TWill. At worst, take a flier on him to see how he does and then move on. It's not like other FAs like Pietrus, Josh Howard or Damion Jones are high in demand.
