Thread: Pacers offer Hibbert, Copeland, and cash for Dragic; Offer Declined

  1. #1

    Default Pacers offer Hibbert, Copeland, and cash for Dragic; Offer Declined

    http://www.ekipa24.si/clanek/kosarka...b0dbdbd/dragic

    Through Google Translate

    Among other things, the Phoenix for Dragic offered Roy Hibbert and Chris Copeland . "And some money," says Dragic, who he's interest in Indiana, a transfer from probably nothing will : "According to my information, in Phoenix say they will not accept offer."
    Gotta love Google Translate. It does not say when this was offered, unless it was lost in the translation.

    I think this would have been a really good trade for both sides, JMO.

    Not sure why Suns would do this. Probably the worst possible team to go to with the way the Suns play.

    Their one real weakness is the lack of a shot blocker, so I understand it.

    Maybe if they tried the same offer minus Copeland.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Shot blocking is a weakness, but not a reason to take one of the very slowest players in the league when your team runs and guns and rotates the bench constantly to wear the opponant down. Absolutely makes no sense. Copeland is more the Suns style, but a bit redundant for them.

    Trade makes little sense, thus the reason it didn't happen.

    Phoenix still plays fast but they aren't the 7 seconds or less D'Antoni Suns anymore. They were a possession faster than the old *** Spurs last year, nobody talks about how fast the Spurs play.

    I think Goran Dragic himself is a good source.

    man I guess everything on the internet is true then. According to my my sources Roy Hibbert has specifically said multiple times that "The Bulls offered Rose, Noah and Butler for me and Cope". Just because he quotes Dragic doesn't mean it came from him. Also this has not been reported by anyone except for this sketchy website.

    Obviously would take the Suns to want to work with Sanders but...
    Pacers get Dragic
    Bucks get Hibbert
    Suns get Sanders

    Rumors have been Bucks asking about Hibbert for Sanders.
    Sanders would be a much better fit for the Suns and provides the shot blocking they lack.

    Source seems sketchy

    How exactly would that trade work under the salary cap rules? When have we ever known the Pacers to toss cash into a deal that doesn't involve second round draft picks? I'm not buying this rumor.

    It would be fine under the salary cap since the Suns are way under the cap.

    So if we made the trade, who plays center for us?

    We probably weren't willing to throw in a future 1st. That's what shattered the deal.

    Probably would've pursued Monroe or tried to pry Sullinger from Boston?

    If it would have happened, I would assume Mahinmi would be the center. Hill moves to shooting guard.

    Probably Scola and West Front line. With Mahinmi getting alot of minutes.

    I think the Cash part was to cover Hibbert's 15% kicker.

    I'm not as high on Dragic as some are. Can he guard anyone?
