    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.

    Curry is out of the question.

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    I'd take Harrison Barnes for Granger. PG + Barnes would be the wing duo going forward.

    I think Chad Ford is simply wrong.
    The idea of trading Granger for Mayo and we give up a pick is nuts.
    IMO Cuban still owes us a pick from the fleecing he gave the Pacers this past summer.
    If we traded Granger for Mayo we'd better be the one getting a 1st. round pick back.
    I just don't see a trade where we get the value that Granger gives the Pacers back in a trade. We don't need to move him to get the most out of PG, and I think he'll sign for less when his contract is up. Granger should be a Pacer for life unless a no brainer lopsided trade comes our way.

    I think what Ford is saying is correct. I don't think the Pacers will trade Danny just because Paul is as good or better or any of that. Most likely it will come down to a money issue . Can we afford to pay both Danny and Paul that much money and have a bench or West or any other decent players (besides what we already have in Hill and Roy)

    Granger for Barnes, Jefferson and a 1st maybe 2 would be something I can get on board with. Makes sense for both teams would suck to take on Jefferson but gotta do it to make money work.

    EDIT: Although if I am GS not sure I do it Harrison is well on his way to being a Danny Granger level player or better. I would likely just keep Barnes myself.

    If Danny is going to be our Detlef, we need to get pieces that fulfill a need, not just castoffs or a cheaper Danny - and certainly not a "potential" player or draft pick. If you think that PG and Lance are in fact heading to the star level, do you try to package Danny for a multi-team deal that nets a true 6th 7th and 8th position wing, point, and big man?

    Someone said it last night, and I'll say it again.. People seem to underestimate Lance's potential. Why trade Granger for a starter, to break up the continuity of this starting five already in place. The Kyle Lowry proposals strike me as odd as well considering George Hill is the perfect Billups (low turnovers, high bball iq, clutch, defender) like point guard for our team. If we must trade Granger, I think we should do so in a way that lands us cap space, prospects (especially at the PF position), and perhaps some veteran help for our still shaky bench. Any trade that takes away our leader, disrupts the starting line up, and halts the development of Lance are ignorant.

    Just FYI guys the thread isn't about how many times Chad has predicted Danny to be swapped. Was just starting a convo on what people might be looking for in return.
