Trading a 1st and 2 future 2nds for Brogdon

 

I like adding Brogdon but I hate to see a 1st being traded. I understand it in certain situation like when the Pacers dealt Plumlee and a 1st to Phoenix for Luis Scola. Dealing one now when your star is injured and you are rebuilding the team? I don't like it. Hopefully it's heavily protected.

 

I didn't think the Bucks had the cap space to match for Brogdon. I guess so? I think he's a pretty big loss for them.

Brogdon is ours! Great move by Indy. That makes up for losing Bogey and not signing Rubio. How we pulled that out, I have no idea. Brogdon is a borderline all-star. This guy just turned 26. He is a lot better than Rubio.

6-foot-8....26   TJ Warren - SF

6-foot 11, 23..Myles Turner - PF

6-fot-10,  23...Domantas Sabonis  - C

 

6-foot-5, 27....Malcolm Brogdon - PG

6-foot-5, 27 …..Jeremy Lamb - SG

 

 

we got a lot younger

 

Its going to take a lot of getting used to.....but that should be a good young team.

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 aggressive and making some moves.  This should be a really fun team to watch when Oladipo gets back, especially in the wide open East.

Great start to the offseason.

 

 

Was planning on Rubio.

 

Lamb and Brogdon is sweet.

Brogdon was rookie of the year...right?

 

This is just like 2 years ago....when we signed or traded for an entire team

 

The Bench is

Goga at center....

Holiday and Edmund Sumner at guard

McDermott at SF

Leaf at PF

 

 

..and we still have Alize Johnson.

Suddenly everybody is well under 30

Jimmy Butler, Kawhi, D'lo, and Tobias Harris are all still available too.  I have a hard time seeing Kawhi or Butler in Indy, but D'lo or Tobias would be unreal after what the Pacers have done already

When Victor gets healthy, our back court will be Brogdon and Vic. Any word on Thad yet?

Exactly Supe..

We were 48-34 …we weren't great...….and we drafted 18th

There isn't a scenario where we draft in the top 10 unless we just throw the entire season...

 

I didn't think we had a chance with Brogdon....I didn't think we'd pay $20 mil

He could be our second all-star

If the Pacers can sign D'lo or Tobias and Kawhi goes to LA, the Eastern conference could be Indy's for the taking

 

Milwaukee is still talented, but lost a great player in Brogdon and Giannis needs to learn how to shoot, since we saw the Raptors exploit that last year.

Raptors are the defending champs, but depends on what Kawhi does

Nets won't have Durant next year and could be beatable

Celtics lost a lot this offseason; they'll be good, but beatable

Philly remains a good team, but beatable

I love Brogdon. I didn't think there was no way the Bucks would let him go. He is not good, he is very good and young, only 26.

….with the tradeoff being losing Brogdon

Yeah we signed Lamb too, thanks. I seen where Thad went to the Bulls. Thad was a warrior, I will miss him.

  What we did here was give ourselves a new 'window'

 

The Bogdonavic, Young, Collison. Joseph window had closed with Vic stil being hurt

 

Now..we have a team in their early mid-to-late 20s.

We have about 3 or 4 years with this group.

 

I'm sad because of the favorites we lost but we got a lot of proven talent.....and except for Brogdon..we got 'em cheap

I do not get it either. Bucks were on the verge of winning the East. George Hill is gone too. He is tough and gritty.

Yeah I just seen it. Pacers are getting younger. I loved the Brogdon get though.

..and we didnt pay him more than Vic...4 years $85 mil

His shooting is unlike anyone we had except for Bogdonavic

     I was mis-directed on Rubio......

...I bought it when I read that he was coming

 

But I don't think there's any doubt that Brogdon is a bigger, better player..and an outstanding shooter

I was out at dinner and when I saw the Woj notifications, I literally shrieked in excitement.

 

Love both the pickups. Lamb is a great player to fill in for Oladipo.

Next year's draft class isn't that special and it's highly unlikely that it's a lottery pick.

 

Put my phone down for 5 minutes and the trade occurred. Pritchard, you madman. Love this move and I would much rather have Brogdon than Rubio. Thankfully they didn't try and sign Rubio at 3/51. Brogdon also fits our timeline a lot better.

 

Brogdon and Dipo are going to make a great backcourt. Brogdon/Lamb/Warren/Domas/Turner when Dipo is out. Brogdon/Dipo/Warren/Domas/Turner lineup when Dipo is back. I think that lineup is pretty solid. Just need to add some depth at the 3/4 position.

 

This is the type of move that the Pacers need to make if they want to compete.

That's the thing.....87,

We still have Myles to block shots and Sabonis to rebound....

 

Lamb is just Okay defensively but Brogdon and Vic in the backcourt eventually will be an issue in the East...

 

In fact..who has a better backcourt than Brogdon and Vic in the East..

I still can't believe we got Brogdon. Look at the young players we have. All 26 and younger = Vic, Brogdon, Turner, and Sabonis as far as all-star potential and Vic is an easy all-star/superstar when healthy. Brogdon plays like an all-star. 50/40/90 is Reggie material.

The Pacers will need to sign a forward who can do some of the things that Thad did for them. Maybe Stanley Johnson? I'm not trying to imply Johnson is as good as Thad but someone like that is needed now at either forward spot. This team has plenty of guys to score now especially if the Warren trade still becomes official.

Very good point..we need a 'dirty work' guy

Maybe it could be Alize Johnson

 

Today was an odd feeling because I like almost everybody on last year's team. I liked how hard they tried… I loved the defense

 

But I think all the expiring contracts said: Its time to reboot.

yr management did a great job

 

We acquired a former rookie of the year who has all-star potential.

After the first of the year..we may start two all-stars in the backcourt

Tobias Harris signed with the 76ers..

..which means Jimmy Butler is probably gone

Warren, McBuckets, Bowen(2-way)

Sabonis, Leaf, Alize Johnson

Turner, Goga

 

 

Still would like to bring Lance in.

 

We also have an exception to use.

I think he's that guy….87......nobody stops him from rebounding

He does one thing very well.....

 

I can see him coming off the bench and grabbing 8-10 boards a game

Might not score a point...but he'll rebound and hustle

Pacers still have some cap space left (I think ~5 mil). They also have the MLE. Move McDermott and that's more money. I think they can sign a couple solid guys with that money.

Lance would be that 'energy guy' off the bench.

..and he played great with Sabonis

 

the kicker is: We don't know how good Goga is or isn't. I have no idea

    • Yes, even those not so obvious ones. IE: called 12 men on field vs team A defense/flagged. Later team B has 13 defenders on the field when team A lines up. But instead of stopping the play and throwing the flag, they grant team B a timeout!!  I feel that is incorrect application and a timeout cannot cancel the 12 men on the field flag once the O is set. Yet this has happened at least twice that I know of (including last night?)     P.I. seems to have a much higher bar in replay than the rules that apply on the field.  This isn't right, though I know it is to detract coaches from challenging P.I. penalties. This rule is for the league to (only) intervene in the most dire circumstances (whether booth review or coach challenge).     Agreed refs need to get better. How?     Those aren't going away until mistakes are eliminated, unfortunately. No way they open up replay to everything like Belichick wants.
    • it was mostly early in the year and then after the chiefs game.   in hindsight the people questioning his durability might have been right after all( i thought he would retire soon, but not this year)   i dont think i should have to wait until the end of the year to say things like i hope they are looking at Qbs in the draft.  we have draft threads every year that start this early.  its also fair to say JB isnt producing much because he isnt.  he might win games with a great line and running game while the defense plays lights out like against the chiefs.  id like a qb that wins us game too though 
    • One of the encouraging things I see about the Colts this year is the reduction in penalties. The old adage of; “more games are lost than won”. No friendly fire.     Keep Watson in the pocket and press their receivers. Stopping the run is critical.     They might load the box and dare us to pass. Missing Roby and Joseph hurts them and this will be a good test, not only for Brissett but for Reich, in scheming guys open.
    • And here's something Brissett is doing well - he's finding his outlet/blitz weakspots when teams send pressure his way:    
    • We should be able to run the ball at will again this Sunday, and that'll help our defense stay off the field.    In regards to our defense, getting Leonard and Hooker possibly back will be huge. I expect our strong performance against KC to hopefully continue with the added playmakers we'll be getting back.   Not to mention we had success defensively against Watson and Hopkins in the playoff game from last year.
