These are all well and good, and I'm not saying Turner has 0 value.  What I'm saying is he is getting outplayed by other players on the roster and the team would be better off trading him.  For example, my claim is that the Pacers would be better off with Jaylen Brown, Sabonis, and Goga compared to Sabonis, Turner, and Goga.  It's great to have a big who is a good rim protector and who can shoot 3s, but he has a worse RPG than Russell Westbrook, Richaun Holmes, Patrick Beverley, Rui Hachimura, and Rudy Gay.  Every year, we've been waiting for him to have his breakout season, and he still can't average 15 PPG.

One good performance doesn't negate a career of underwhelming performances.   He's still averaging less than 12 points and 7 rebounds this year despite being a starting 6'11" C with nearly 3

Did anyone here watch the press conference with Malcolm Brogdon? Really seems like a nice guy with strong character and leadership. 

Terry Rozier got $58 mil for 3 years.....19.3 a year ..and we got Malcolm Brogdon for 21 mil a year   I think we might've gotten a better deal...

1. The Celtics are not trading us Jaylen Brown for Myles Turner.

 

2. You just need to give up on the "breakout" season for Myles. He's not going to average 15 PPG in this system unless he is taking 9 3's a game like KAT is. 

 

The other 4 players in the starting lineup are all averaging 17 PPG or more this season. There is only one ball. Myles Turner is not getting the touches and shots necessary to average 15. 

 

Goga is a complete liability on defense right now. We should not be relying on him in any regard until he learns how to defend without fouling.

 

 

 

If Myles Turner played in this game, he would be contesting all these shots and making it a lot more difficult on Harden. Sabonis just cannot provide that defense and Goga can shot block, but he gives up too many fouls. 

 

Myles never has high rebounding numbers because he constantly has to protect against other players on the team getting beat and meeting guys at the rim. The rest of the team is there to rebound the ball.

 

 

I'm not even thinking about trading Myles until/unless Goga improves to a place where he can be impactful while playing 20-25 minutes.

Edmund Sumner will play against the Pistons tomorrow. I wonder how he factors into the rotation.

 

Either he takes Aaron Holiday/TJ McConnells minutes, he remains out of the rotation, or they go back to a ten man rotation where they do small ball and play all 3 guards together at some points.

Pacers are doing real well.  I wonder when Dipo will be back.  

 

I saw a story on NBA Hoops Rumors that he is looking at late January for a return.  No need to rush as long as we're winning games right now.

 

Will be interesting to see how the chemistry of the team will change one he's back.  Obviously, everyone wants him back, but there will be some adjustments to make when he is in the line-up compared to how things are working now.

 

But, it's all good!

At this rate, I don't expect him back until after All Star Weekend.

Didn't catch the entire game, but did watch the end of the 4th quarter. Nice to have the team almost healthy again.

 

I really, really hope Sabonis gets an All Star selection. He deserves it.

Outside of Embiid, I'm not sure there is a better big man in the East right now.

What a game by Pacers on the road against good Den team.

 

Congrats Sabonis on getting his first Triple double and Only Lithuanians to achieve that feat in NBA. The guy is a beast and I think the best old school Big man in the NBA or atleast EAST. 

 

Loveeeeeeeee the game by Brogdon / Warren / Sabonis / McBuckets. 

 

Lets go to Utah and beat them.... 1-0

Just think, last year there were a bunch of fans that wanted Sabonis traded. 

I said they were crazy then and wasn't wrong. haha

Sabonis has very good basketball IQ I was watching last night game and Turner was standing in the paint while Sabonis pushing the defender and Brogdon has ball so he signal Turner to move to corner 3 which open the lane for Sabonis.

Him and Lebron were JUST "hugging it out" last night... what a shame. 41.. 4 children :( sorry Kobe. all the things he accomplished on the basketball court.. but I'll always remember how happy he was when the eagles won the superbowl.

 

RIP distant cousin. 

Yeah I am here at work and that is all everyone is talking about. Everyone is in shock. Pacers have always been my favorite team but I have liked the Lakers since the Magic days. Kobe and Shaq era was fun too. RIP Black Mamba, prayers go out to Vanessa and his kids. I am in shock right now.

Very sad. His daughter Gianna was on the plane too.

    • I get #1 and I especially #4. #4 worries me. I think #2 & especially #3 would be greatly reduced with us, just like with Phil.
    • I wouldn't say trading for Stafford could happen "easily"  They aren't trading him unless they get someone they feel is a better option.   If they can't,   they won't trade him
    • Good post on Hilton: One critical element, regarding Hilton is; who’s going to be throwing to him? People say he’s declining and to some degree that’s true but he really hasn’t had a “gunslinger” throwing to him since Luck and I believe that effects people’s perception of him.       I like Mack but he may warrant better money elsewhere. If Taylor went down, it would be nice to plug him in and having running backs with “fresh legs” at the end of the year, would be key in making a postseason run.      Hooker is expendable. I hope they find a way to keep Rhodes. (It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary shakes out).     I think they’ll keep Autry and/or Houston but that could change if they think Lewis could step in.      I disagree that MAC is a “one note player”. He’s an above average blocker, a good route runner and good at 50/50 balls. He was hampered by injury, so he looks lumbering in his receiving game but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of his game yet.      
    • I believe Houston was on the feild more than Autry too. Never mind Autry was played a bit more.
    • TY Hilton - If he's not willing to take a paycut down to WR2 money then I'm fine with moving on from him.  Loved what he's done for the org but he's not a WR1 anymore.  I'd rather pay him WR2 money and sign a True #1.   Marlon Mack - His spot at this point is taken.  I'm fine with moving forward with JT, Hines, and possibly drafting a young bruiser or signing a vet for cheap.  If he's willing to come back on a prove it deal then fine, otherwise he can test the market.   Justin Houston - Resign him.  2yr deal with an option.  Coming off one of his best years.  He was definitely our best pass rusher.  Health isn't a concern but age is.  I'd say bring him back.  Not too expensive however.  That may prove to be a problem if he's looking to cash out before retirement.   Denico Autry - I want to bring him back, but if another team try to force us to overpay for him then we should let him walk.   Xavier Rhodes - I was impressed by Rhodes this year.  Bring him back, but not for #1 CB money.  I don't think he's there.  #2 CB money for him and I'm ok.   Anthony Walker Jr. - He can walk.  We need an upgrade.  I'd be fine with drafting his replacement.  But if we can't find anyone I'm down to bring him back.   Malik Hooker - Same as Marlon Mack.  JB has taken his spot.  Either come back on a prove it deal or he can walk also.   Jacoby Brissett - We need to wait and see how our QB search plays out.  If we are able to grab Wentz, Staff, or Wats, then I'm ok with Eason being the backup.  But if we fail on the 3 mentioned and Ballard isn't sold on Eason, I'm fine with JB being a stopgap.  He'll play good enough to keep us competitive but not so good where we have trash draft capital.   Zach Pascal - IDK about this one.  We need to upgrade at WR but due injuries depth is a concern.  50/50.   Mo-Alie Cox - Resign ASAP!  I think MAC is a diamond in the rough.  I honestly think he can be the next Antonio Gates.  Not sure why we don't utilize him more.
