Lot of discussion regarding Mahinmi and upgrading w a 3rd Big. I cannot find a list of backup centers and salary specifically but below is a link to Hollingers player efficiency ratings for all nba centers (starting and bench). I don't place a great amount prominence on stats and not the intent of this thread. Because Iain is ranked last for all qualified players. this list is simply to provide us with a list of backup centers we pershaps should consider.
other than going round and round in circles and no one providing substantial data. please review the list in the link provided below. if someone has a better breakdown w salary included it would be appreciated.
Centers I would like the Pacers to consider as a third big: these are reasonable suggestions. obviously I would like to see us a add a Vucevic or even a Tyler/Cody Zellar but I don't see how that is reasonable without trading core players.
DeJuan Blair - prob not likely.
Dalembert - I think he is paid too much.
Plumlee - like to get him back
ZaZa Pachulia - heck yea, but im guess he is paid more than 4M.
Greg Stiemsma - this one seems very realistic,,, and would be a nice addition. 2.7 M salary,,, I would deal Cope for this guy.
I remember Stiemsma from his Boston days and he seems to be a darn good defensive player. I don't want to see this guy on the Heat.
if anyone else has a list please feel welcome to post. I cant find anything with salaries included.
