    the 3 years could easily be team options on the last 2. we found a diamond in the rough you keep him all 3 and he's restricted, it's potentially a smart singing.
    We'll see about that on Fan night.

    If this move gets Scola out of town, I might buy the dude's jersey. LOL If Scola does stay(heaven forbid) has anybody considered that by signing shooters they might be considering moving Scola down low where he is more effective. Don't know why they didn't use him like that in the first place.

    Youtube videos determine everything, if he can be a great shooter and pass the ball I think he's a good signing depending on money...I assume/hope this is a pretty cheap deal, but no idea until numbers come out.
    "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."

    Default Pacers sign Damjan Rudez 3 year deal...

    He reminds me of Peja Stojakovic. Looks like he can shoot 3s good but that's about all he brings to the table. No rebounding and that's a concern to me. I'd rather go with the guys we have

    Some people on RealGM are saying his defense and foot speed are better than most people have seen or think. I dunno.

    Anyone who says "this is a steal" and has never mentioned his name before today...

    (Not criticizing the move. Just people who are speaking about someone they never even suggested as a free agent before he was signed.)
    I never expected him to come to the NBA. This signing came completely out of left field for me.

    In any case, I did know who Rudež is before today. I remember him playing with Croatia in the 2013 EuroBasket. He did a very good job hitting 3s (he shot 51.6% throughout the 10 games of the tournament, 16/31 in total) and he really helped his NT to reach the Semi-Finals. He was their leading scorer in the match against Finland (scoring 17 points by going 5/8 from 3 point land and having me swearing at him because I wanted Finland to win ) and he also made two crucial 3s in overtime against Slovenia in a game that Croatia won by 2 points (http://www.eurobasket2013.org/en/cid...ndID_8722.html).

    I really didn't think that our FO cared about the European FA market. I'm pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked by this move.

    this guy can flat out shoot. He plays more like a guard

    Sorry, I should've labeled the positions........




    PF- Rudez
    SF- Copeland
    C- Allen
    SG- Miles
    PG- Watson
    I believe that Copeland would be the PF in this line-up. Rudež is a SF at the NBA level, imo.

    yeah, he is a small forward. Not a stretch-4 at all.

    No one pretended about Copeland's D. He truly played better D than some people gave him credit for. He was a lot better defensively than Scola was.

    I think his point was that we pretended Scola played better defense than Copeland, and that's why Chris didn't get to play more. I agree that his defense wasn't much worse - and was perhaps better - than Scola's.

    Don't forget also, that Copeland played Euro ball for awhile himself. That bench will be great at knocking down 3's. To work though, they'll need spacing, and a PG who can create the open shots. But there are a lot of different offenses you can use with these five to really bust open leads. If Allen can improve his already on-the-cusp 3pt shot, the possibilities are endless.

    He is a combo Forward in Europe. He can play both Forward positions over here. He is definitely a SF at the NBA level, though.

    He isn't 6'10 either. ACB's site had him listed at 2.05 which translates to a little under 6'9. Of course, it's common to see European players measure higher in the NBA than they did in Europe since most European measurements happen without shoes.

    I really don't want LaVoy Allen to become a 3pt option. He has a respectable jumper at the 15-20 ft area but I'm not sure that I want to see him spent time trying to increase his range out to the 3pt line. It would make more sense to me if LaVoy worked on the consistency of his jumper and his defense.

    That's because he is a lanky wing. He isn't a PF.

    At a salary starting at $1.1m, it's a cost effective signing at least. From what I've read, this fellow seems to project as a shooting specialist.

    Damjan reminds me a lot of Teletovic. Which isn't a bad thing. I like a lot of parts of Teletovics game.
