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

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...

Don't like to see first round picks being traded, but it will likely be a late first round pick (20th or later) and you could easily make the case that Brogdon is worth it.  Pritchard is being aggress

better be trading one of these Centers for a key starter

That's what it sounds like, doenst it?

We have Myles at $18 mil and in a year, we've got to pay Sabonis the same.

 

Sounds like we will not be doing that.

Sounds like Birtadze is going to be our back-up center eventually.

Right now the pick seems questionable with Turner and Sabonis on the roster but I think this can work out nicely for the Pacers.

 

1. Turner and Sabonis have the most value to move.

2. Pacers (and others) saw Goga as a late lottery talent.

 

In theory, you draft a center at 18 who has more upside than a player who plays a position you need that was also on the board. Trading one of Turner or Sabonis is likely to land the Pacers a good wing player.

 

The overall result of Goga + whoever they land in a trade can be much better than Turner/Sabonis + other players they could have selected.

 

This just might work out for the Pacers...at least way better than it appears at a first glance.

 

 

One other thing I'll add...I will always hesitate to criticize the Pacers for taking a player they don't currently need at least when that player has upside like Goga appears to. It's tempting to with this pick but I just think back to the 2011 draft. That night it appeared like a good move to trade the draft rights for Kawhi, a wing player it didn't appear the Pacers needed, for a point guard which was a position of need at the time.

I'm totally down if we can land someone awesome by trading sabonis but it better be a damn good deal

The problem is, for this to work. Bitadze has to be better than Myles or Domas….not just okay

That COULD happen...….I've never seen him until tonight...He is highly regarded..amnd he is just 19

But we passed on some good players to take a guy who, in 2 or 3 years, might be better than the two quality centers we already have.

That's a high bar.

See what I mean here.?

 

I'm calling for Carsen Edwards at 32.....

 

What's the problem with Kevin Porter Jr...?

Definitely hoping GOATga pans out for us. Watching his tape, it seems like we still may have decent rim protection when Myles is resting and/or in foul trouble (something we saw a bit too often).

 

I think it'll be interesting to see how he moves against NBA speed. Also, I truly hope that picture of him and Zion motivates him. Surely it only paints a small picture, as he himself stated that he did receive questions, but it has to still stir up something, no matter how minuscule.

No doubt and I think those are valid concerns. We'll see how this plays out.

 

But I think that this move gives the Pacers more flexibility...we'll see what they can turn that into. (if anything)

I'm thinking we stash him.....in Europe..

We trade away our 1st second round pick..we have lost no cap space tonight

 

..But we have roster spots to fill.

I dont know but it sounds like we think we have a couple of  free agents lined up.

Perhaps some of our own free agents

Sorry for my late thoughts. I went out and saw Toy Story 4.

 

Anyway, I like Goga Bitadze as a player, but not sure how he fits in the rotation unless Sabonis or Turner is moved.

A few other thoughts:

 

1. Wow, at Bol Bol dropping so far down the board.

2. Not sure how I feel about trading the 32 pick for three future seconds. There were some good players left on the board.

3. Of course Boston gets two Indiana products.

Im actually a suns fan. Sad 10 years I know. T.J is a solid player. Not overly athletic, but will chip in points and has improved his 3 point range. Unforunately hes missed a lot of games due to injury.

people on reddit are saying that Pritchard said sabonis will play the 4 how stupid after saying all this season that they couldn't lol

 

Turner should be the one playing the stretch 4. I don't think Sabonis is athletic enough for some of the smaller 4's in the league.

Well, Sabonis is in the last year of his deal. This gives Goga a year to take it slow, learn, and be ready next year to fill in. I really hope he's as good as they, and everyone else who thought he was a lottery guy, say he is.

 Pritchard was kind enough to do a post game press conference.
 He explained it at a "for dummies" level that could possibly help some here.

So here is how I see the current depth chart:

 

PG - Rubio (presumably), Holiday

SG - Oladipo*, Sumner

SF - Bojan (presumably), McDermott, Alize

PF - Sabonis, Leaf

C - Turner, Goga

 

* - will be out for a few months

 

Unless I am missing someone, we still need a shooting guard. 

 

Pacers signed a former 5* recruit. Consider me intrigued.

You forgot TJ Warren. He will be a big part of the offense.

Oops. That's right. 

I still hope we re-sign Bogey. Dipo will probably be out until December so we will need his offense as well. Warren is a good player, I like that trade we made for him. If we can get Dipo back 100%, we will be a tough out come playoffs. The East will be wide open especially if Leonard leave the Raps.

My guess is, our lineup next April for the playoffs will be:

 

PG Rubio if he signs

SG Oladipo

SF Bogey

PF Warren - he makes for a solid stretch 4

C Turner 

6th man will remain Sabonis

-and players like Goga, McDermott, Holiday, Leaf, Sumner will split minutes. Turner and Sabonis for what ever reason can't play together. Thad and Collison will be gone IMO. Not sure about Joseph?

 

On a side note, I would love to have Lance back on maybe a 2 year deal. He would be key for us off the bench.

everyone thinks Warren is a back up SF or a PF I honestly thinks hes a bogey replacement hes cheaper and has identical stats. and I'm ok with that if we would just use the money to sign a max player and not some scrub like Rubio

Rubio isn't bad, he isn't a star though that I will agree on. If for some reason we do not bring back Bogey, we will bring back Thad then. No way we let both go. Just put Warren at the 3 and Thad at the 4 if that is the case. I would rather have Bogey than Thad.

 

What do you think about Lance again one more time. He is still young and is good.

I read an article on 8points9seconds that suggested Tobias Harris would not be a good fit for the Pacers, citing the fact that he'll be seeking near-max money and Sabonis would be in his way at the 4 spot.

 

I still don't know how I feel about moving Sabonis to the 4 because of his lateral quickness, among other things. I like the idea of Tobias Harris because he'd give us a stretch 4, something Thad wasn't, and Sabonis isn't (at least at this stage of his career). Not sure of anyone else's thoughts on Harris, but I did find the article somewhat intriguing.

So why would you trade the guy who is better between the 2 offensively and on the boards?

    • It's because Brissett is the better back up QB right now, for this season.  They feel he is better than Eason at this point and that would make him the correct choice for the role.  It'd be different if they didn't have high expectations for this team.  Love, Tua and Hurts are the best backup those teams have.

    • Before i begin i just want to say that i'm not taking any shots at anyone but only keeping things real. That being said i dont get it. I just dont understand why Jacoby a person were not going to be resigning next season is our back up QB and not Eason. I know people say hes our best back up QB but again hes on his way out the door i mean why not have Eason a QB who is suppose to be our future on this team be the backup and have Brissett be the third stringer? i ask this because if you look at the packers you see Love as the backup aka the future starter, Tua on the dolphins is the backup for Fitz again future starter, then there's Hurts on the eagles behind wentz another one. These guys i mention wont start right away but at least they'll be ready when called upon i mean Herbert on the chargers has put up fine numbers these last two games and he never saw any Pre season action. So my question is why cant we have Eason be the one taking the snaps when were up by big margins instead of someone who wont be on the team after this season?
