    Question You guys want Jason Thompson?

    Real GM says Kings will try and trade him next. Could he back up Roy instead of Ian?

    No, Mahinmi is just going through a rough stretch. He'll be back to form soon.

    I like Thompson, but not his contract.
    3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:

    1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow

    2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round

    3. Trey Lyles

    I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.

    If you can't get playing time on a crappy Kings team, then you aren't going to get play time on a contender. He also has a horrible contract.

    I honestly haven't even thought at all about Jason Thompson in at least a year.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    You need to look up player salaries before suggesting. I was high on Thompson a few years ago when he was still in the potential category. I was even higher on West, but never dreamed the Pacers would have a chance of getting him, so my backup plan was Thompson. But, Scola probably makes a better backup center than Thompson. The real kicker is that Thompson is over $6M each o the next there years. He would absolutely kill our salary situation.
