Trade works using Real Gm trade checker but didn't on ESPN trade machine. Either way I'm guessing Clippers want the Pacers to add a 1st rounder.
The Pacers are bringing in Glen Rice jr Monday.

Butler is 33... basically we're looking at a one year rental vs keeping Granger and possibly resigning him cheaper if he meets expectations this season. If we get Bledsoe, it seems like we would have to make OTHER moves in order to build around Bledsoe. Right now, we just need a good backup point guard and additional bodies on the frontline. Also, people just need to accept that Hill is going to be our starting PG for the future, and stop looking for trades to send him back to a sixth man role.
Rockets are not picking up Aaron Brooks contract, apparently on some delusional quest for Howard cap space. Hard for me to follow the logic of that FO. Regardless, is he better than DJ?
'persevailed' - Best neological portmanteau ever
Short, quick, waterbug PG who can shoot. I remember people here describing him as a better Darren Collison. At one point he was a 20 ppg scorer for Houston. He's fallen off a cliff since then though. Don't really know what's wrong with him.
IDK but Danny could be a one year rental also. They cannot afford West, George, and Hibbert and try and keep Lance and Danny.
If Danny does well they cannot probably afford him period. Regardless of Lance. Not sure what the answer is.
Houston's system was perfect for Brooks, where I think he overachieved for a season. Collison is definitely better IMO. Aside from the game, he has a quick temper and bad attitude. I'd pass.
Yeah I'll pass on Broooks. Another undersized PG. I also think Collison is better than him.
An interesting bit about the 2011 draft. Don't know where else to put it.
Do the Pistons still end up with Drummond next year if this happens? I suspect Toronto wouldn't pass on him if they didn't have a center, and the Pistons end up with Kendall Marshall or one of the wings (Terrence Ross, Jeremy Lamb, Rivers).
http://www.news-herald.com/articles/...mode=fullstoryHere's an interesting story told by an insider involved with one of the teams. In 2011, most everyone in the league thought the Cavs were leaning toward Lithuanian center Valanciunas with the No. 4 pick.
That included two teams behind the Cavs: Toronto at 5 and Detroit at 8. So much so, the teams had arranged a trade after they figured the 7-footer would go to the Cavs.
A source said the Pistons were going to trade the eighth pick and guard Ben Gordon to the Raptors for Toronto's No. 5 pick and guard Jose Calderon.
The Pistons were going to draft Tristan Thompson at 5, while Toronto would have taken Brandon Knight at 8.
The trade was called off when the Cavs passed on Valanciunas and selected Thompson at 4. The Raptors jumped on the Lithuanian center with the next pick. Both teams appear happy with the outcomes of both players.

Pacers Digest mock draft LIST:
@SamAmicoFSO: Word is, Pacers have strong interest. RT @turnaroundj9: Why is Brandon Jennings not being looked at? IND, UTA, DAL could use him.
