    Default We Have One Spot Available On Our Roster...Who Do We Get?

    Should we get another PG? Gain more size at Center?

    Whoever we get it better be only a one year deal.

    I would like to see if we could get Fredette for Copeland though. Otherwise I like what we have

    Looking over the free agent list on hoopshype I'm just not seeing anyone that could really help us.

    We will be keeping the roster spot open so that Bird has the option to do a 2fer1 type of deal.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    We should look at a big cause Ian has trouble not fouling people and we need insurance in case both he and Hibbert are in foul trouble. West or Scola at center is disastrous.

    Umm ... no one?

    I don't think there's anyone out there who would be an upgrade on the current bench rotation that wouldn't mess up next year's salary structure. I'd say wait to see what we need at the trade deadline or what looks vulnerable at the playoff eligibility deadline.

    Me. I'd help as much as anyone else they could pick up off the scrap heap. I can wave a mean towel. And I'll definitely put my 6 fouls to good use.

    This.

    At some point, I expect the Pacers to pick up another big, but he would be a 'break glass in case of emergency' type. No playing time absent either a blow out or 4 of the 5 big we have now fouling out.

    I can't jump, play defense, or shoot, but I can talk trash.

    We basically have a 4 man rotation with the big men....Hibbert, West, Scola, and Mahinmi....

    They're basically interchangeable. Besides not having Hibbert and Mahinmi on at the same time, those big men can play PF and C

    I love the Hibbert/Mahinmi lineup and expected to see it more than we have. But with West in Iron Man mode and Scola taking all the minutes available, there just hasn't been the opportunity.

    Back to the topic at hand, it's hard to believe anybody could come in and make a difference for us. We're not trying to string together a decent regular season, we're shooting for a championship. Is there anybody available who can help us do that?
    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.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    It brings me comfort to know that, one day, my replacement will be looking through the files on my work computer and, amongst the tax forms and annuity brochures find inexplicable memes of Ukrainian punnery.

    Well...I think I recall Lou Amundson getting waived recently.
    Or Magnum Rolle

    Edit: but seriously, I wouldn't mind seeing Amundson back here.

    Boban Marjanovic. Why?

    Because he is a 7'3, 293 lbs behemoth with a 7'8 wingspan and a 9'7 standing reach. The fact that he actually has basketball skills is a bonus as well.



    He is very slow but as a 3rd Center I'd like him. He is also only 25 years old which means that he could improve.

    David Harrison. And I'm not joking. The dude must have season tickets or something, because he is literally at almost every home game now. And with D-West here, I think he'd behave.

    For someone who doesn't have the greatest past with the team/community he sure is a huge Pacers fan. Some of the tweets people post on here make it seem as if he still has friends on the inside too.

    Being 25 I believe means he can no longer be drafted, so maybe the Pacers can sign him to be the Ian replacement.
