    @MikeWellsNBA: The Pacers are expected to release swingman Sam Young today.

    That's too bad. I thought he helped our defense a lot.

    Y'all love beating dead horses. Some of us were wrong about him, move on. Even those of you that didn't expect much from him surely didn't anticipate he'd spend the entire season doing nothing but jacking up threes.

    I agree I didn't like him at all as a player and didnt want to sign him. However I didnt mind the signing due to the terms, but he has been much worse than I expected.

    Also, it's too early to be "wrong about him." He's been nowhere near as bad as the board would make it seem, just like Young (worse stats) was nowhere near as decent as the board would make it seem.

    I don't think Green, Young, or Johnson will help this team at all this year. The only reason I wouldn't want to see Green cut is that we could save more cap space by buying him out at the end of the year after taking this years salary out of what he's owed. I don't want to see anything done to give us cap space unless Walsh is gone though.

    January 10 is the guarantee date. I bet Ben is released too. I wonder if we resign Sam after January 10 if not I we will be making a trade soon or maybe giving out 10 days wish we would of not waited and got CDR.

    I hope this is the case....for both Ben and Young. For Ben....unless Vogel all of a sudden realizes that we have no 3rd PG and that Lance could be that guy.....what happens when we need a 3rd PG?

    I suspect it's cuz Young is an unguaranteed contract and the Pacers want to cut him for Salary and Roster flexibility ( just in case there is room needed for a trade ), but I think it's a mistake. No matter what people here on PD think of him.....he's the type of Player that you want on the Team for a Deep Playoff run. You want Players like Young on the roster...even if he's just a cheerleader.....you want Players with veteran experience that fills a specific role ( defensive stopper ) on the Team.

    I agree with this 100%. I'll also add that I believe a lot of people look at Young for what he is not instead of for what he is. I think the Pacers will regret this.

    Wells expects us to sign someone to some 10 day contracts to fill the gap that Young's ankle injury would have left, and then after that Granger should be back.

    Dominic McGuire is one tough MFer. He's considerably more physical than Sam Young.

    This seems weird, he was playing heavy minutes with the team, but has missed the last 4 games or so with injury/sickness then is cut?

    I thought he played great defense for the team and hit a few shots on offense. I like him alot more the Green. Plus his talent to pay ratio was off the charts!

    If anybody should get cut I think it should be Ben. Young is a guy we should keep especially with his cheap contract. I guess it kind a makes sense if he can't play and we'll just sign some guy to a ten day until Danny gets back or whatever.

    It would be impossible to cut Ben without any other moves due to the lack of depth at the PG position.

    As far as Sam goes I wish him well. He played well and hard here in Indy.
