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.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
