Thread: DJ Augustin being shopped? Marc Stein

  1. #1

    Default DJ Augustin being shopped? Marc Stein

    In terms of those 108 offseason signees who become trade-eligible Saturday, at least three names are coming up repeatedly on the personnel grapevine: Indiana's D.J. Augustin, Phoenix's Michael Beasley and Boston's Courtney Lee. There's a reason for that, though: All three are seriously struggling.

    Not surprising, but are teams asking or are Pacers calling other teams?
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    We'd have to give up the pick to get some team to take him or take back a long term contract that we may not want.

    Gotta figure we're calling them. If anybody was calling us, the deal would already be done.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Yeah, if they were calling us, it'd go like this:

    "Hey Donnie, I was wondering if DJ was..."

    "He's yours pal. Which team are you calling from again?"

    yeah, pretty sure the Pacers would take cap space and a roster spot as a fair trade.

    Donnie would probably take JO, SJax, and/or Metta Ron Artest at this point.

    Hopefully we can move him.

    Somebody would have to be incredibly desperate to give away anything of value for a slumping backup point guard who is allergic to defense.

    I think the article is totally bogus. To say that someone is being shopped means that we are trying to make a sale. Simply not true. We are attempting to find a team that we can pay (i.e. reward) to take him. I think we all recognize this fact.

    So, we aren't selling, Stein is totally wrong. In fact, I'm pretty sure we are engaging in some form of "disguised begging".

    You don't pay someone to take an expiring contract. We can just let him expire if nobody wants him.

    Especially since with West, PG, and Granger deals coming off the books soon the last thing we need to do is add mediocre, multi-year salary.

    DJ is only paid what $1 mil? Expiring and he DOES have talent. Just not working out here. Besides most GMs buy low. Here's the chance to make a low risk medium reward trade

    I hope we can secure a 2nd rounder. There's a can't miss foreign prospect out there.

    Exactly. I don't know if people forget that DJ is an expiring contract. As an expiring he has some minimum value. There are a lot of bad GMs around the NBA that could want him.

    I think his expiring has value...
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    He doesn't work as an expiring contract because the Pacers don't want to take back contracts with multiple years left on them. The team has to think that he will help their team this year, or they won't give up anything we would be interested in.

    PG's are hard to come by. He will get another chance and it would be good for him to leave the Pacers. His defense would not be as much of a liability in other systems.

    Yes it is 3.5 for this year, which is just nauseating considering his 400,000 3rd stringer has now surpassed him in the depth chart.
