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 agree that Ballard has been great.   This team is good and even has depth at most positions. Now is the biggest challenge GM's face.   Finding a franchise QB.  Bringing in Rivers was a good gap move.  I won't fault Ballard too much for the QB spot going forward because when you are drafting in the mid 20's, it's not great odds of getting a top notch QB.  Even trading up doesn't guarantee success and requires a team to give up lots of draft capital.   QB's available in the teens and mid 20's in the 2021 draft may be comparable to Eason.  Not sure the direction Ballard should and will go, but it is a tough opportunity.  
    • Yes, but he looked great when he got one!
    • Imagine Eason’s our QB, it’s easy if you look no need for Fields or Lawrence don’t even mention Book. Imagine Lucas Oil hosting playoffs every year.  Woo Hoo!   (sorry John)    
    • That's if you trust "the media" as /i will never forget the ridiculous choice of RGIII over Luck even though if you looked at what each had to work with and net improvement, it wasn't close, let alone fair.  I don't trust the decision makers, if the press disagrees with them, to pick the right candidate. They haven't been fair before.
    • I have been a colts fan forever and have lived through pretty crappy coaches and GM's. I can say without a doubt the Ballard/Reich regime has the Colts pointing in the right direction. Compared to the last(which i blame for the beginning of the end of AL). Ballard is a finder of talent that no one else sees and Reich and staff can coach these guys up to be successful not just fitting a square peg in round hole. Case in point 2013 draft, Bjorn Werner taken by RG at 24, behind him were the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Leveone Bell, Travis Kelce, Zack Ertz, Travis Fredick, Cordelle Patterson and Xavier Rhodes(which is funny we have him now). I know there is no crystal ball but all I have mentioned did pretty well in college except for Werner. My point is the roster is stacked with young contributors and that D is now a Monster. Can't wait to see when they turn their attention to the O side.
