    Default Tyler for Royce White

    Seems simple. That bridge is burned or at least on fire already, so if Indiana felt like they could better accommodate White's needs (maybe, maybe not, but let's assume for the moment yes), then why not move on from Tyler now since it's unlikely we're interested in re-signing him, and let Houston give him a brief look before deciding for themselves if they might want him back?

    I'd do it. Love Royce White's game...even with the headaches. Can play Pends/Plumlee more.

    Anything that gets rid of Tyler, imo, is a good thing.

    Throw EM a second...I wouldn't trade Tyler for that because I believe he could be the second piece in a larger deal

    even if losing THans is not a big loss, this trade would would require throwing out a 1.5 year's worth of rookie salary--White can't even play in the D-League right now. White's situation is a lot worse that it seemed at the time of the draft.

    I've been trying to think of a way to get Tyler off of the Pacers since June 25, 2009 and even I can't figure out a way to make sense of this.

    Both players are sunk costs. At least we're rid of ours sooner.

    Royce will be lucky if he is in the NBA before his rookie deal is up

    hell no
    Counting down the days untill DJ Augustin's contract expires.

    I'd do it. I like Hansbrough but if White can get over his issues he has the potential to be a top level talent.

    I honestly don't think he will ever get over them...

    I'm a not so secret Tyler fan. I'd love to make this trade and have JLin, Harden and Machado getting Tyler the ball before the clock runs down to .3/.

    I wouldn't trade anyone for him, not even DJ Augustin or Pendergraph. If he's cut, I wouldn't pick him up off waivers. If there was a poll asking who I'd hate to trade for more, White or Metta World Peace, I'd click on White. At least Metta isn't spending his time doing interviews about how the Pacers are to blame for everything that happened with him and how everyone around him is an uneducated hick.

    I don't think he would change here. Why would he? Our good leaders in the locker room? He avoids the locker room. A new, better doctor? He doesn't want a new doctor, he wants to be "treated" by his old general family doctor in Minnesota by phone, and that doctor apparently says whatever he wants to hear. Also, White's contract option for the 3rd year has to be picked up until October 31st of this year. Way too little time in a situation like this. If we don't pick it up, he'll likely just quit on the team completely and go on a bunch of TV shows to talk about how the Pacers aren't sensitive towards people with mental disorders. I don't think he's nearly good enough to be worth the PR disaster and distractions.

    I just hate that situation all around, and I feel sorry for the Rockets. They don't deserve all that nonsense. But I'm glad it's not the Pacers. To be honest, I was hoping that White, Sullinger or PJ3, one of the 'red flag' guys, would drop to the Pacers in the draft and we'd take him. What a relief that White didn't drop.

    Seriously? This is a joke. Some of you need to catch up on some NBA sports news. Need I say more? Plus whats with people on here wanting to get rid/trade Tyler? Esp for a guy who doesn't like to fly, rejects his own teams request. Get real.
    Try hard-er or Die hard-er. In this to win it.
