My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
I wonder if the Cavaliers still want Gasol, Kyrie,Waiters,Deng,Varejao and Gasol can be pretty good(if they are healthy)
I am willing to bet that Waiters will be on a West Coast team by this time next year.
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!
Broussard's take.Chris Broussard @Chris_Broussard 19h
Let me clarify the Bynum tweet: I'm not saying he HAS signed w/Heat . Just saying that if he's waived & joins Miami, Indy is toast
"We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
Well, I mean ****, if CHRIS BROUSSARD says it!
@ESPNSteinLine: In case you're wondering: Cavs CAN negotiate w/ @LuolDeng9 on an extension until June 30 and can offer three years up to just under $50 mil
I didn't know that was possible good for them I guess.
Any chance the Bulls sign Lance?
"Philly got Bynum" We are in trouble guys.
"Cavs sign Bynum on a good deal" We better watch out.
"Heat will sign Bynum" We are in bigger trouble than last year.
I am not scerrrd. Unless Bynum's spare tire is filled with helium instead of scotch and steak, that is.
The Kings pick is heavily protected good move for the Cavs. The only question is if Thibs ove usage of Deng will catch up to him.
The Bulls really sold low. Looks like the owner trying to stay out of the tax which he hates to pay. They save a lot of money, and now can play Snell and Butler all game. I have a feeling it will be a Paul George Mike Dunleavy type situation. I have a feeling Thibs will choose Dunleavy over Snell. Watch Dunleavy play 36mpg the rest of the way.
They just want Bynum for 6 fouls. Their thinking of using him vs. Roy is not for offense, but more so Lebron and Wade don't foul out or pick up 3 fouls in the 1st half of a playoff game. That's why I think Indy getting Gasol off the bench would be a good idea. He's an expiring, he'd be a rental, and he's a better backup than Ian. I think he'd play back up to Roy for half, a season just to win a ring. Maybe a three team deal where we get Gasol and some other team sends picks or young talent to LA. All we'd have to give up in a three team deal would be Ian, and maybe Solomon or Orlando.

As for Heat's interest in Andrew Bynum, I've been told it's minimal at best if he cleared waivers. They already have one big-man project.— Jeff Zillgitt (@JeffZillgitt) January 1, 2014
Forget the minutes, that's bad enough, the Bulls doctors almost ruined his career.
That was Rose's rookie year, if people don't think that had something to do with Rose not wanting to come back from the ACL (remember how their front office wasn't exactly supportive of that?) you're kidding yourselves. I don't know why the Bulls and Reinsdorf seem to get such a pass from the media while they always (rightly) kill the NY teams. Maybe it's a hangover from the 3peats so people still think the Bulls are flawless but they aren't a very well run organization in my opinion.
That put Rose's injury and him not wanting to play in a whole different light. I cannot blame Rose for wanting to sit out longer and not trust the Bulls doctors.
If Deng can continue to play at his level even with the Bulls wear and tear on him then it will be a great move. I understand from Xs and Os how signing Bynum could make sense for the Heat, but when it comes to team unity and the lockerroom he just is not worth the amount of work they would have to put in. They already have Beasley to take care. I would hope they would give him a shot and see him be a huge pain in the *** that he is.
