    Default Chad Ford Chat

    http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat/_/id/46674
    One of the first ?'s was about PG and DG...

    Jesse (DC)


    What is the best way for the Pacers to reintegrate Danny Granger without disrupting Paul George's emergence and reviving an anemic offense (bench in particular)?
    Chad Ford (1:11 PM)


    I fully expect that by the start of next season Granger will be wearing a different jersey. The challenge right now is how to bring him back, prove to teams he's still a pseudo-All-Star so that his trade value is high, and not disrupt what's happening in Indy. George is the future of the franchise and Granger's absence has given him the opportunity to emerge. They can't mess with that. But they don't want to sell Granger for pennies on the dollar. Lots of veteran teams would be interested in him if they are comfortable that he can stay healthy. Look for Golden State, Toronto, Houston, Dallas to all pursue.
    Any of the assets on those teams excite any of you?

    Without looking at the salaries guys like Curry, Lowry, Ed Davis and Chandler Parsons could be attractive.

    I'd rather have Granger.

    I really hope Ford is wrong.

    After he has missed so much time his value will be reassessed league wide. How he returns after this injury will dictate how much we can get for him in a package. If he is the DG of old I would accept nothing less than Lowry and a 1st.

    I agree, but I also think Chad Ford missed the fact that Lance Stephenson claiming the 2 spot and continuing to improve is the reason there might not be room for Granger after this season (PG was going to start at the 2 or 3 regardless).

    Lowry and a 1st would be good, because Toronto's 1st will be a high pick. But I'd accept Lowry only if he was willing to be a backup, and depending on Augustin's future I might be ok with two 1sts and they keep Lowry.


    I think the only piece we need now is a young, scoring-minded big. But nobody's gonna give one of those away.

    If he is the DG of old, why would we want to trade him? Is the guy even out of his 20s?

    Do people just like to never be in "win now" mode?

    You don't keep Granger and risk letting someone like Paul George go. The problem with "win now" mode is that unless you have Mark Cuban as an owner your window is about 1 season long.

    we are gonna have to trade him IMO just cant afford everyone


    Houston and GS intrigue me as partners Chandler Parsons would be ideal(i doubt Morey would do that though)

    I would be down for Barnes + too.


    lol at getting Lowry and a 1st that is not gonna happen at all if I was the GM in TOR.

    Terrence Ross + is probably the most we could get from them IMO.

    In negotiations you start high P4E, I want their pick, might as well go in asking for Lowry too

    Why Chandler Parsons? Wouldn't the whole point in moving Granger be to open the SF position exclusively for PG?

    My preference if we ever trade Granger is to get another tall and long Forward so that we can keep a long wing rotation with two 6'8" or 6'9" Starting Wing Players.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    No, the whole point is we cant afford him same reason Harden was traded by OKC. We aren't going to go deep into the LT if we could trade Granger for a younger and more importantly cheaper player that can be here long term you do it.


    Same reason Memphis had to tlet OJ Mayo walk BTW. I would hate for us to just let a player of Granger caliber walk for a small market franchise that would be a major blunder. Im sure KP will get creative and try to gauge the best course of action but someone will be traded before it's time for George to get re upped.

    EDIT: And to why Parsons I like how he moves the ball and plays the game he would fit really well here. But like I said Morey has a reason he cleared all that cap room I dont think that reason was Danny Granger so I doubt he would bite.

    Which should make one wonder if the Granger trade is just for the sake of trading Granger.
    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.

    Curry is out of the question.

    I think Lowry and Toronto's first wouldn't be a bad starting point.

    I especially like the part where Danny returns, proves he's near the same level as PG (ie, borderline AS, though PG might move past that) and then suddenly the Pacers say "good lord, with everyone locked up, West resigned for 10 per, we gotta get rid of this monster 5 group and start over".

    Outsiders have wanted to solve a non-existent problem for years. If Danny comes back good enough to demand high trade value then it will mean that they are a title contender. There is no way a borderline star added to this current squad is not a title contender, which is the F-bombing goal of the whole thing.




    If Rose comes back even a little healthy then the Bulls should totally trade him ASAP because the Bulls have done pretty well without him. Oh, when it's another team we don't think like insane people? I forget the rules sometimes.


    Ford has had a hard-on for a Danny trade more than anyone. Total speculation on his part.

    What is it with that guy? The Pacers should release a statement specifically addressed to Ford saying "We are not gonna trade Granger".

    After the end of this season, we trade Danny for Harden. It's that easy. Move on.

    TOR's first this year is owned by OKC BTW.


    They traded it to the Rockets in the Lowry trade and was traded to OKC in the Harden trade. Also it's lottery guaranteed I believe the exact protection is top 3 and 14-30
