    Default Danny to the Rockets

    To Pacers

    Jeremy Lin
    Cole Aldrich
    Royce White

    To Rockets

    Danny Granger
    Ben Hansbrough

    Works on the trade checker. We get a good backup point guard that will bring in not only more fans but also more media attention, as well as a couple of big bodies to help in the post, and if Royce causes us to look bad we can just cut him.

    That's a pretty negligible return for Danny. You already have Aldrich in Plumlee, Jeremy Lin is more average than his hype suggests, and Royce White has more than just talent to factor in. Although, I would love to have Motiejunas!

    So basically an expiring (Aldrich) and two bad contracts for one of our most important players from last year.

    Aldrich and White would likely never play a minute for the Pacers and in fact White might do more harm than good because he'd now have to do his whole "I'll educate my franchise on mental disorders" routine from the start. He might make under 2 mil / year but that's a horrible contract for what he brings.

    ok then, switch Cole Aldrich with Motiejunas, now do you like the deal? We are only adding to our team and this is less dangerous than adding Granger to this team.

    Look, adding Lin to this team would be awesome. He's a great mid range shooter and he adds a lot of penetration that this team needs. Yes, he is paid a lot and proabably isn't worth his whole contract but I can see him meshing well with our team. Granger likely will mess up this team's chemistry.

    Granger will likely mess up team chemistry? well then, Lin and White will likely mess it up even more, they are new. I don't get this argument. You have one of the smarter people in the NBA in Granger, this isn't Beasley or Artest.

    Let's just agree to disagree.

    I'm not huge on Lin especially with his poison pill coming to due when it's time to pay Paul and Lance. After reading the thread on the main page I did some thinking and thought something like Parsons, Patterson, Delfino, Montiejunas for Danny, Pendergraph, Hansbrough. It's a lot of filler but Parson does what we expected Green to do and more, Patterson or Montiejunas becomes are back-up for a resigned West next year when select Tyler walk. Delfino can back up Lance and we have plenty of cap space to sign Paul and Lance in 2 years.

    Not that I'm a fan of this proposed deal (at all), but the poison pill's already dead right? It only would've existed had the Knicks kept him I thought?

    His 3pt and FT percentages were never good enough to justify the amount of jump shots that he likes to take.

    I guess I'm not totally sure, but I checked on hoops hype and they have his contract laid out for the $15 mil. in year 3.

    Yeah that is not good at all, not really a fan of Lin, we are not big market so the media attention would probably be minimum, his contract would hurt us thinking about signing PG and West, Aldrich is not Plumblee by the way for someone who said that, but overall the deal does not really mace sense, especially from the Pacers standpoint. I feel if we take on a huge contract it needs to be expiring really, if not we might as well just keep Danny.

    I'd be disappointed with that. Lin has a terrible contract.
