    Default We losing OJ too?

    I haven't seen anything about him in the Philly trade, but CJ mentioned on Twitter that OJ is gone. Separate trade? Buyout? Or bundled with Granger?
    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!

    Not sure, but I'm pretty sure it's separate.

    We had to cut someone to make room for Allen since we only shipped Granger away. I'm guessing Orlando got cut.

    CJ's tweet:




    OJ's tweet:




    I guess that he is gone as well

    Good luck, OJ. I appreciated all the good minutes that you gave us as a Pacer. I really hope that you succeed in your career

    Good luck OJ. Fix that hitch and you'll find a spot.

    Make sense... His deal's not guaranteed past this year. I like the kid though.

    Tough life for the second round guys. One bad season and you're gone.

    Remember when people thought OJ was better than Plumlee? Life is funny sometimes.

    Good luck to OJ, but he didn't impress this year pretty much at all. Love the kid though. Hope he sticks around Indy for the rest of the season.

    Well, Solomon Hill will be getting some minutes next season.

    Was it OJ or Solo who complained about minutes in Fort Wayne?

    Solo. He should be more careful - he's not that much higher than OJ in the totem pole.

    Solo at least produced, OJ has been really struggling with shooting, at the end of the NBA is all about making buckets.

    Honestly, if Solo was a 2nd round pick or wasn't a rookie it wouldn't be far fetched that he would be cut in favor of OJ. OJ was still above him on the depth chart.

    O.J. seems like one of the nicest human beings in the world based on his Twitter. Sad to see him go. He had a very promising rookie year, but his shot's just not falling this year. Still, he's reasonably young, has prototypical modern SG size and athleticism, and a decent skillset. I suspect he'll get another shot in the NBA in due time.

    If he finds his 3 point shot again he will, and will have a decently successful career as a back-up.

    Except that Solo is a first round pick and thus has guaranteed contract.

    I liked OJ a lot but at the end of the day he is too short to play the 2 in the NBA and he is not a PG. I can see him making a living as a backup if he can find his shot.

    I want to know what happened to him... last year, he showed so much confidence and produced. Then it just poofed.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I like Solomon Hill more as a player, if Hill can develop a reliable 3 pt shot this off-season, he could be a solid back-up

    I liked OJ but he is a SG that can't shoot. I don't think his shot can be fixed.

    Solo looks like the better wing shooter and defender long term, plus more size and length that the Pacers seem to love.

    The best part of the trade is that OJ is gone.

    Have something personal against him? It isn't like he was getting minutes outside of garbage time.

    2 years guaranteed, so like OJ he will get 2 years, but if he's not showing enough, well...

    To be fair, I like Solo and think he could become a good glue guy type of player. But I like OJ too so
