    Boozer is the same height, but weighs more than LaVoy Allen by a smidge. Boozer is 260+ I think. LaVoy is 255. Boozer can easily play back up center for us. Which would move LaVoy to 3rd string. That means in order for this to go down, Scola is cut, or traded along with Ian.
    Get to work, Grimp!

    HA! Ian and Scola would have to be moved in a dump trade. Meaning nothing comes back. If we wanna have money to chase Boozer, moving Scola and Ian frees up about 8 mil in salary I think.

    We...

    1. Wouldn't have the money for Boozer...like ANY
    2. Wouldn't have a starting spot for him as West is better, and he wasn't a fan of split minutes with Taj
    3. Have much bigger needs

    Ugh. Personally, Boozer is one of my least favorite players in the NBA...

    I cannot stand Boozer and if he put on a Pacer jersey I would not watch the team. I would rather see Stephen Jackson come back.

    I'd become a boozer if we signed Boozer. Oh wait... well I wouldn't like it.

    Boozer? Why exactly why we would want a bad version of David West again?

    right, I'm not a Boozer fan but it's not like the guy's a D-Leaguer, you can do a helluva lot worse for a backup 4 (such as Scola or Copeland). it doesn't really matter, it has like a 1% chance of happening, just saying.

    Boozer will end up in San Antonio somehow. That's just science.

    If teams were competing to get him, I'd feel a lot more comfortable bringing him back. Honestly, the fact that no one offered the 23 year old that led the league in triple doubles a contract is a little scary.
    No one has given any offer to Monroe or Bledsoe either, so what's wrong with them?

    I get where you're coming from, and I kinda agree, but you know that's not fair with Lance being unrestricted.

    Re Boozer, the guy would be a minimum signing if at all. I wouldn't stress about it.

    Re the whole "dude" thing. I would think JT requesting not to be addressed by a certain term should be enough, but I guess some people want to exercise their inalienable right to call others "dude". You go, dudes.

    I posted earlier that he's acting like he's actually restricted. Do you disagree? I mean, do you think Lance will accept an outside offer (say from Hornets or Mavs) without running back to Larry and asking him to match? Whether he actually will or not, I'm guessing that's strongly the perception. And that's one reason why I keep saying that his agent seems over his head.

    Anyway, about the whole "nobody's chasing Lance!" stuff. I frankly don't really care, the majority of people that have run NBA teams have been failures, literally. I'm certainly surprised by it, and it does give me a small bit of pause, but not much honestly.

    I've talked about this before and been laughed at, which I definitely get, but there are numerous, I don't how else to word it, "internet personalities," bloggers, tweeters, that kinda stuff that I'd trust to run a franchise over probably half the league's current guys. Most of these DUDEs didn't get their gig because they proved their worth, they got it because they knew people, same as any other industry.

    I do agree, but perception's not always the reality y'nkow. Besides that, outside of the Pacers (and I guess Orlando with O'Quinn) it's not like any execs have a rapportwith this Alberto Ebanks character, far as I know anyway, maybe he's got some non-rosterable type guys under his tent and has had interactions with teams that way, but seems like those would be pretty cursory.

    Regardless, Lance's free agency vs. Monroe's or Bledsoe's or whatever other RFA just isn't fair. Lance is basically in the wind right now, all the RFA guys are on a clearly strict schedule. If I'm running a team I'm clearly chasing a guy that I'm on the clock for over the guy I can call on the 15th if I feel like they're the same tier of talent.

    Lance at 5/44 is a good contract for production in today's NBA, there's no two ways around it. So if that's where we get him at, I'll consider that a win. We will have a ton of flexibility moving forward with him on that sort of deal.

    If we get him on the 5/44 deal post 2016 cap jump it's going to be one of, maybe THE, best non-rookie/Lebron deals in the league. I really think that.

    Yeah I mean the Pacers would head into 2016 with only Lance, Paul, and Solomon on the books right now I think, maybe CJ Miles? Either way, you're talking about a boat load of cap space and one of the best players in the NBA on the team in Paul, that tends to be a good thing for teams nowadays it seems. You can get another big impact free agent and re-sign Roy in all likelihood if he is still around and proves to be worth keeping.

    Durant is the headliner of that '16 class, but there are plays for the Pacers like say Conley and one of the power forwards available in that group that could replace West like Horford.

    I'm obviously getting really close to grimpin' but let's say Pacers get Lance at 5/44 today and then grab Conley and HOrford in 16 and re-up Roy and G. Hill on reasonable deals

    Conley
    Lance
    PG
    Horford
    Hibbert

    6th Man: G. Hill

    That'd be a pretty sweet team I think. Obviously I've gone full grimp-mode, but it's 2:30AM

    I actually like Boozer. He was way overpaid, but I still like his game.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!
