I just don't get the hype with Jimmer.
Well recently the Jimmer did hit 6 of 8 3's in a game vs the Knicks,
I am tempted. I mean CJ has just been awful lately. And Bird was interested in Jimmer in the draft. I think though Larry might feel he's made too many moves already? But I would consider cutting Sloan for him...........maybe?
Well recently the Jimmer did hit 6 of 8 3's in a game vs the Knicks, Remember too Larry saved Herb Simon 4.28 mil in the Granger/ Turner pro-rated that's prob 1.6 mil paying Fredette the minimum would still leave over a mil savings . Not saying I'd do it just looking at it as adding another usable piece in limited minutes in the playoffs. After adding Turner, Donald Sloan's spot is even less valued. Nothing against Donald

What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?
Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.
I'd take Jimmer over Sloan.
That's about it.
The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
Signing Glen Robinson III
Trading for Budinger
Signing Monta Ellis
Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)
Re-signing Stuckey and Allen
Jimmer's shooting would space the floor too. If we played a lineup with......
Watching the Miami Heat play Golden State twice this season, I have learned you can never have too many shooters versus Miami.
Seems like a good scoring PG who can shoot from outside and pair with Lance and ET. We'd have to drop a player... Sloan?
Sounds like something a person in jail would post.
I would definitely give him a look. We need one of those guys who is cash from beyond the arc, and Jimmer certainly is a 3 point specialist. Maybe over Sloan, but I wouldn't cut anyone else. I don't think a signing will happen, but Legend will (and certainly should) give him a look.

I want him in the blue n gold because he is one of my favorite players and he still has a lot of potential left.
He's like a short Adam Morrison or Trajan Langdon. He can shoot but he is just so slow on defense that it would drive me nuts.
I'd rather give more minutes to Butler and Copeland if we need a shooter to help spread the floor.
Yes, of course we should have interest. He's one of the league's elite shooters, and would make a dynamite scoring punch off our bench when needed. He's shooting 48/49/90 this year --- you think our offense could use that kind of efficiency?
Watson/Fredette/Turner/Scola/Bynum would be a very interesting second unit.
Is he an upgrade over Butler or Sloan?
Cuz these are the 2 Players that would likely be replaced by Jimmer.
Keep in mind....the price of Jimmer isn't just what we sign him for....it also includes the cost of buying out whoever we cut to make room for him in the lineup.
My guess is that he's not.....not at the price of buying either of them out and then signing Jimmer.
I'm thinking that he ends up in OKC...they were looking for a shooter before the trade deadline.
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
All that being said, I don't see anything happening on the Jimmer front with the Pacers.
Bird has liked him in the past. However, I don't think there are enough minutes to go around to even make this signing necessary. We could use another 3 pt in the backcourt though, where Turner and Lance don't give us much.
