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 am all for bringing Lance back. That would be great. He plays good here.

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...

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

Thats the good thing with Sabonis, he can slide over to center and TJ Alize and Warren can run some 4.

..and the big thing, to me is: We are not tanking. We are not conceding next season because Oladipo is hurt.  We are not trying to build through the draft...

We are acquiring proven players on their second or 3rd contract

 

We are certainly a playoff team next year.

Our seed probably depends on when Vic returns

Vic should be 100% by January which is perfect. If we bring Lance back he can pick up that slack a little.

I love how Pritchard put money where his mouth is. We weren't linked to Brogdon at all and many teams wanted him (Dallas, Philly, etc.) Pritchard went out and got him. Added a good shooter and great player. I think KP recognizes that the East is wide open and is trying to make a roster that hold their own w/o Dipo and be really good w/ Dipo.

Yeah the Lakers wanted him too and LeBron wanted him. This is a great move for us.

If I'm seeing it correctly,..

…..out 4th guard right now is Edmund Sumner

Fine young man...but unproven..

 

Lance could play some 1..some 2 and some 3  in a pinch

..and he's a firestarter especially at home games

Lance just makes too much sense right now. Has to happen, right?

I like Sumner, lets see how he progresses. Like Leaf, I like him but he needs to improve. We have a young team now.

To get Warren, Lamb and Brogdon....all who average 15 or more..

giving up no players and one No.1 choice (is it 2020?) is excellent work..

The Suns and Bucks and Charlotte all had to give up players due to salary desires or demands..

 

That's how we got Oladipo and Bogdonavic

Yeah, these were all great moves. Warren was free. Lamb is on a great contract, and Brogdon is a good trade. I'm glad the team didn't give up Holiday. 

 

Poor Charlotte. Rozier is making as much as Brogdon lol. I wonder why Bucks let him go. They were so close this year and could have run it back.

Just realized how young. Our entire core is under 30 and Brogdon and Vic are in their primes.

True..we didn't give up Holiday or Sabonis or Myles

 

Lamb is a shooter Have Gun, Will Travel….and hes got to be happy to get out of Charlotte...

and Warren might have paid us to get out of Pheonix

 

Brogdon is on he same contact time line with Myles...4 years

….Lamb is here 3 years...at 10-11 mil..31 mil for 3 years....

Warren is signed for 3 years..and 13 mil is his biggest pay year

 

Sabonis has 2 more years before he's an unrestricted free agent

Holiday has 3 more rookie pay years.

 

This was reboot on the fly...

Apparently they were not willing to give Durant a max deal.

GSW was. Brooklyn was.

Knicks weren't.

 

To be 100% honest.. I would not have give Durant a max deal coming off a torn achilles

This was the best way for the Pacers to actually compete. Realistically, Pacers were never going to land a Kyrie/KD/Leonard level FA. I'm glad Pritchard took a risk instead of staying complacent. Now that you mention it, Lamb and Warren are probably glad they're out of those bad situations.

 

Edit: Is it true that Vic and Brogdon are good buddies? All I know is that he wanted out of Milwaukee.

now if we can just fleece someone in a Sabonis trade we will be ready to take the east next year when Dipo gets back 

I think Sabonis is gone too with the Brogdon trade. Maybe not during the summer, but the trade deadline at the latest. Preferably a PF (Aaron Gordon was being thrown around).

Jimmy Butler to Miami

 

bad day for the 76ers

Kept Harris, and initial rumor is Josh Richardson is involved in trade.

 

But yeah I agree, lose Redick and Butler is a hit. Even TJ McConnell is probably gone.

So it seems with getting rid off all cap holds we would be around $6.2m or so in cap space.

 

Goga and Sumner would run us about $4.6m.

 

Leaving us with $1.6m and an exception.

 

If we can move Doug and save that $7.3m, that would get us up around $8.9m in space.

 

Still need some depth in backcourt and probably a wing and 1 more big.

 

Joseph

Lance

Justin Holiday

Philly's roster is the best on paper. They're looking scary. If Simmons learned how to shoot, they'd be favorites, easily. 

 

Edit: Philly is copying the Pacers lol. Pacers went big and Philly copied.

 

 

When we play the 76ers...we'll have the big guys to guard Horford and Embid

But just like us...who is the '4' for the 76ers

Shocker:

DeAngelo Russell to Golden State in a sign-and-trade?

 

How?  Who does GSW send to the Nets.

 

 

GSW has to be going into the tax for this, right?

 

Looks like they are trading Iguodala and a 1st to the Grizzles. Iguodala might be waived by the Grizzles. He can't return to GSW for a year though.

 

On paper I don't think D'Angelo is the greatest fit with Curry and Thompson. At the same time I don't blame either side. Having to figure this out in a year when Klay returns isn't really a bad problem to have.

 

If your GSW you needed to get another star to replace KD. It's better to get D'Angelo and see what happens vs doing nothing.

 

For D'Angelo I don't blame him for choosing GSW over other options. Go to Minnesota if they were able to clear the cap space? Return to the Lakers or go to the Clippers? GSW is as good or better than any of those options, imo. 

 

In the back of my mind I thought maybe the surprise of free agency might be the Warriors ending up with another star forward, Kawhi or Jimmy Butler, to replace KD. Ending up with D'Angelo Russell isn't the worst outcome for them.

I am glad because I think he is locker room problem. Not good for Indy and when he was in LA he wasn't good.

Draymond and D'Angelo will be interesting as teammates.

    • I have to admit, this was the first time this year that I was disappointed in the guys on this team. They actually looked bored, of all things. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd say it looked like they were told that the Titans were given the win by the league in this one, and they didn't have it in them to even make it look like a real game.   Now that's how it looked.   In reality, though, it did look like they, for whatever reasons, couldn't find it in them to be up emotionally for this game. And there's no other way to describe that than extremely disappointing. And as a result, it left me increasingly bored with the game as it went along. So much so that it took me three viewings to complete it. I actually fell asleep on two different occasions trying to finish it.   BLECH!!!
    • Agreed doesn’t make it any less disrespectful.  
    • Don’t like it, but they backed it up.
    • I think Manning and Condon engineered Manning's way out of Indy...and there's a decent chance Irsay was involved. That team was really bad...and Manning wasn't going to spend his last few years on a team with an aging crappy roster with little hope of getting back to the Super Bowl. I think Manning's legacy was incredibly important to him...and he felt he had unfinished business.   Manning's last contract was actually signed in the summer leading up to the 2011 season...less than 7 weeks before he would have the neck fusion. They were in a lockout that offseason...and it wasn't resolved until 7/25...so Manning didn't sign his deal until 7/31.    But at that point, he had had failed TWO surgeries (one in February and one in May I believe)...and still couldn't throw the football 5 yards. There is a fantastic WaPo article out there that chronicles Manning's neck injury and recovery. Manning knew he couldn't throw...and that it wasn't getting better...and because of this and him having access to the best medical care...I think Manning also knew what he would have to do...in regards to the fusion surgery and other treatments (like the stem cell treatment he got in Europe).   But the interesting part is that Irsay, who knew Manning better than just about anybody (and I am sure knew about the surgeries and maybe even Manning's current status), didn't bother to have even a basic physical before making Manning "the highest-paid QB in the NFL"...as he insisted on doing. I know QBs are treated differently...but that what type of business owner makes that type of investment without due diligence (or how does his inner circle of advisors let him). It would have been akin to Ballard giving Luck a big extension in the summer of 2017 when Luck looked like he weighed 170 lbs.   Either Irsay was aware of it all and was involved in Manning's exit...or he took Peyton at his word on his health and was ultimately duped.   But considering they both agreed to include a massive $27M option bonus due the following spring...essentially a poison pill that would end the contract if there even any question about Manning's health...I think it's pretty clear they both knew there was considerable risk due to Manning's neck. But the rub is that it was actually Manning (and Condon) who insisted on the roster option...and I think they did it because they knew what was coming and knew the Colts wouldn't/couldn't pick it up. And they even made the option decision due 5 days BEFORE the start of the league year...so that the Colts would have to pick it up to even trade him.   Basically...Manning would be a FA and would get to choose his next team to cement his legacy...and the Colts would rebuild...which is what Irsay wanted. And most of the fanbase would accept and understand why he left. It was pretty ingenious actually.       
    • I want us to face them again in the playoffs and beat them, just like we did in '18 with the Texans.
