Trading Sabonis away would be a massive mistake.

 

No, no, no, nooooo.

It would have to be the right deal for me to trade Sabonis, but I am open to it for sure. I'm keeping Myles for the defense alone. We are one of the best defensive teams in the league when he is in the paint blocking shots. Sabonis won't be able to do that for us period. 

 

I don't know if this pairing is going to work out and I'm not giving Sabonis a penny more than what Myles got. I just don't know where we could trade Sabonis that would be fair for both sides.

I really like Sabonis and he's made that Paul George deal look even better than expected.

 

I'd like to see Sabonis and Turner play a few games to see how this works before a trade is done or not.  They are both too good to platoon for each other, so it's play them both, or deal one of them.  

 

Like other have posted, I'd be more inclined to deal Turner with the way the league is evolving now.

 

I guess we'll see what happens.

If Sabonis is indeed traded, I'm curious to see the package the Pacers get in return. Should be solid for sure.

Glad to see him stay.  We'll see how he and Myles work together and I'm sure it will take time to figure it all out.

 

Sabonis can't be traded until next summer with this extension, but Turner could be traded anytime.  I don't see Turner being dealt before the deadline, unless a team desperate for a big man makes us an offer we can't refuse.

 

But, for now, this distraction is over, so LET'S PLAY BALL!!!

I’m know I’m late on this (I’ve been extremely busy), but so glad to see Sabonis extended. Such a great move and shows the Pacers are committed to winning.

i thought they should have traded one of them tbh and didnt care which one.  guess we will see how well they play together after all, cap space is too valuable in the nba to pay them both and alternate minutes

Edmund Sumner is ballin'.

 

Aaron Holiday is thinking too much. He's been pretty bad so far.

Luke Kennard killed us. They use him like I wish we would use Doug McDermott. I honestly wish we would have signed JJ Reddick last offseason instead, but he was probably intent on staying with the Sixers.

 

Drummond and D-Rose gave us problems too. Doesn't help that TJ Warren and Jeremy Lamb didn't play well, and we didn't get much from the bench. Didn't expect to lose to a Pistons team at home without Blake, but it's clear that this team needs a whole lot of time to gel together.

The new additions (at least TJ Warren and Jeremy Lamb) were really underwhelming. Seems like Warren will be out a few games as well. 

 

Defense looked pretty bad all night. Sabonis and Turner couldn't stop Drummond.

 

Anyway - it's only the first game. Trying not to overreact on everything.

Need a back up big that can help them or play the one we got. I hope we see no more Leaf. They were efficient till they started looking gas

Exactly I thought we are gonna be the force in EAST since with all superstars leaving to WEST maybe this was the year. Boy o boy are they proving us wrong.

not to worried about the team honestly. I still dont think the Sabonis Turner pair is gonna work but we can just trade Sabonis and probably get a pretty good return. when vic returns tho him and Brogdon will be a force for sure that will also free up turner to feed down low and I really see us being a powerhouse.

Turner is the one who needs trading, not Sabonis.

Turner has been a disappointment since he has been here.

How could it not become an issue? :dunno:

Turner has never lived up to what most thought was his potential. 

In turn Sabonis has played way beyond what most thought he was capable of. (not bad for a throw in player on a trade)

sabonis is a huge defensive liability we become awful on defense without Turner with him we are one of the best why the hell would anyone wanna trade him for another pure scorer when we clearly have that with vic and Brogdon

It is an unknown that Vic will be the same player as before. 

Sabonis needs to be our 6th man, end of story. That is on coaching.

he isnt gonna be a 6th man cause he can start somewhere else. I'd love him as 6th man but he's too good for that role

I'd rather see Turner traded. I think Sabonis has a higher ceiling. We hear every offseason that Turner has done this and that, yet hes still the same player he was 3 years ago. A solid player (obviously a good defender) but that seems like all he will ever be. Hes almost like a shooting guard trapped in a big mans body.

On a positive note Brogdon has been pretty dang good. Him and Dipo should be fun to watch. Hopefully the rest of the team gets it figured out by then.

Make up you mind.

You say he isn't good enough to be a starter for the Pacers but trade him to start some place else?:scratch:

We had a top 5 defense last year and that was because Myles Turner was protecting the rim and we had a PF like Thad who could actually switch and guard power forwards and small forwards.

 

Sabonis is not going to work at PF. I'd be shocked if he wasn't traded next summer.

How/why is TJ Leaf still on this team? He's awful.
