    Offer Hibbert and maybe a sweetener. You know what's funny though? If we move Hibbert and Scola to PHX? It's illegal because according to an NBA rule.....PHX and Houston cannot trade for Scola this Summer. But that trade would be perfect. An expiring, a player who is/was an ex-Sun. And then a rim protector in Roy. They gain size and shot blocking at an elite level. Essential in the Western conference. And we gain a PG upgrade in Bledsoe or Dragic. But that damn rule about PHX not being able to trade for Scola.....OY.
    Well....if they get Lebron and Melo they won't have any money left

    Lance isn't getting more than Lowry.
    Even if Lance gets equal to Lowry, Pacers might not be able to afford.

    Dragic is not a Free Agent. The only way that we can see him in a Pacer uniform is via a trade....which I doubt that the Pacers have the assets to acquire.
    give em Roy .... it won't happen but could you imagine Dragic/Lance/PG team to build off of

    David Aldridge (NBA.com) thinks we should go after a certain former Pacer in free agency:

    8. The Pacers should sign Brandon Rush


    Rush has fallen off most folks' radar since he was traded to Golden State in 2011. He tore his ACL and MCL early in the 2012-13 season, and played in just two games for that season. Then, he was dealt to Utah in the multi-player trade last summer that helped Golden State clear cap room to sign free agent Andre Iguodala.

    He played sporadic minutes in Salt Lake City and didn't have a future in Utah with Alec Burks in place as the team's two guard. He certainly has no place there now that the Jazz took Dante Exum with the fifth pick overall.

    So it would make sense for both Rush and the Pacers for a reunion. He's still only 28, and -- unfortunately for him -- he hasn't played much the last couple of seasons, so he hasn't accumulated the wear and tear many of his peers have. But Larry Bird saw something in Rush to get him on Draft night in 2008 (it was the same night the Pacers got Roy Hibbert from Toronto) from Portland, which took Rush with the 13th pick overall.

    Rush shot 45 percent on 3-pointers two seasons ago and hasn't lost that skill. And the Pacers, in the bottom half of 3-point shooting last season, need help in that area. Rush shouldn't be thought of as a replacement for Stephenson if Indiana loses him in free agency, but he's capable of playing the position, at least on a part-time basis.

    An incentive-based deal for Rush would certainly be cheaper than what it will likely take to re-sign Stephenson, and Rush will likely be welcomed back in the locker room if, for no other reason, for the calm he'd finally bring to what has been a volatile position.

    Haven't seen Rush play since the second ACL tear, assuming he's back from that all for bringing him back for the minimum. Ekpe Udoh didn't get his option picked up by Milwaukee, wouldn't mind taking a flier on him.

    Call me insane but Rush over Dun any day for a bench role player behind Lance. Not the answer but a low cost bench guy.

    I wouldn't mind Xavier Henry. He has more athleticism than Turner, that's for sure.

    What??????? Why? And isn't he injured? Or is that Wesley Johnson I am thinking of? We still need a back up 2 guard though. Meeks or Thornton hopefully. Xavier is a forward.

    I can't wait until Jodie Meeks signs a long-term contract with someone else.

    The Indiana Pacers are coming off of a very disappointing end to the 2013-14 NBA season, and are looking to make a few moves to come back stronger next season. According to a report from Sam Amico of Fox Sports, the Pacers are interested in signing shooting guard C.J. Miles this offseason and will visit with him later on today. This is a very intriguing fit for the Pacers, and Miles would bring scoring and defense to the bench.

    Care to elaborate on why Aldridge suggesting that the Pacers go after a 3D Player is considered "insane"?

    The only part of the post that I do not agree with is that I thought that BRush had some locker room issues....which I thought that Bird didn't like.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    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.

    Whoooo, lets pump the brake here presto... Its like having a knucklehead on your team... One knucklehead can give you that edge that you need, same as one former player can give you the nastalgia that you need... It's when you start getting more than one is when problems occur...

    CJ Miles would be a great fit, and probably can be had for pretty cheap, better than Henry imo, though that could be a bias because he always seemed to torch the Pacers.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."
