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.

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...

Posted Images

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.

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.

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

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.

I dont understand why Milwaukee paid good bucks to Robin Lopez....

….with the tradeoff being losing Brogdon

  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

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 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

Yeah...does David West want to com out of retirement??

Tobias Harris signed with the 76ers..

..which means Jimmy Butler is probably gone

Brogdon, Holiday, Sumner

Lamb, (VO), 

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

    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
