Same   It seems to be sports entertainment along the lines of WWE.   Have little faith for the integrity of the NBA. I would trade Oladipo for Hayward for sure.

May as well kick off a new thread since we are officially in the offseason.   And we have a new coach!    

yeah easy to remember "Can you please call Mr. Nate in the office please?"

Cant say I'm to thrilled with the new coach, hopefully he proves me wrong.

 

He has been the favorite for a while though. Seen his name floating around for a little bit.

Yeah, I don't know much about him, so I cannot say whether or not I'm "excited" or "disappointed" in the hire.

 

Looks like he has some connection to TJ Warren when he was with the Phoenix Suns.

Im sure he will be fine. Toronto is a great organization. 

 

This was a big first step, now, now onto roster notifications.

Watched his press conference - seems like a confident, personable guy.

 

He thinks he'll be able to play Turner and Sabonis in the same rotation. We'll see how that turns out, but I'm not a fan.

Welp.

 

 

 

I see something different almost daily on him.  One day he wants out and the next he wants to stay.  Rumors that several teams have interest in him, but I think most want to wait and see how he's playing.  Maybe a trade deadline deal would bring the Pacers something more in return.  And, the annual rumors about Turner being dealt, too.

Pacers draft Duke SG Cassius Stanley at 54.

 

 

How did he last until 54? I just seen a special on him with Coach K talking about him. Coach K was saying he was a better athlete than Zion. I thought he would go top 5, strange. He has a 44 inch vertical leap to boot.

This was a strange draft

 

    Over half the guys drafted in the 1st round I hadn’t heard of

He even put up good stats last year playing for Duke. I am trying to figure out why he went so low??

Trying to figure out the same thing about Ashton Hagans Khalil Whitney and Cassius Winston

If you go to Stanley's youtube montage, he looks like a young Paul George. Plays just like him but has better ups.

After reading the write up on Nick Richards I don’t think the scouts watched much game or practice tape

 

i don’t think the teams did the same scouting they usually do

   Tyrus Maxey only met with team

Seems like it. I just had seen the special on ESPN (Sunday) about Stanley and I was thinking man this guy looks awesome. When I found out we got him at 54 I was stunned.

Bummer the Pacers didn't have a first round pick this year.   I think many very good players fell further than expected.   Knicks got a steal with Toppin at #9.

Too bad the Pacers are a team who trains good players that move on to other teams that are competitive for championships.

Till Simon comes off the money to pay more than one top notch player it will not change. 

Sad the NBA is paid off under the disguise of a salary cap.

Cassius Stanley reminds me of Gerald Green. He'll probably start out in the G-League, but could be someone to watch down the line competing for minutes because of his athleticism.

Pacers not extending the qualifying offers for Alize Johnson, Brian Bowen, and Naz Mitrou-Long.

 

Mildly surprised about Alize Johnson.

Yeah, disappointing. I like Alize, he should of got more PT last year in the bubble.

 

Jakarr Sampson:facepalm:

 

Dont get me wrong, I like Jakarr as a 14th/15th man but he shouldn't of been playing so much if at all.

 

 

McMillan is gone for a reason. Horrible coaching decisions and even worse rotations.

Scott Agness: Source: Rayshaun Hammonds has agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with the Pacers. He’s a lefty with range, and did part of his pre-draft training in Indy.

Well that makes me sad, I went college was Alize, and got to watch him and was so excited to see him drafted by the Pacers

Do you guys think Gordon Hayward would be a good fit with the Pacers?

I think he would.

 

Question is what do we have to give up for him? Sign and trade is about the only way.

 

 

I don't want to trade Turner for him.

 

 

If they would take some combination of Goga, Lamb, Mcbuckets, or Sumner/Leaf and/ or pick I would be game. Even Oladipo.

 

 

Brogdon, Hayward, Warren, Sabonis, Turner is nice. Little unorthodox but really gives a lot of lineup flexibility.

 

Hayward and Warren can both play stretch 4 as well when Turner and Sabonis are not on floor together.

 

Brogdon can slide over to the 2 and have Holiday run the point.

@w87r

  I believe he will(is) a FA

We dont have cap space to sign him outright though. Would have to be S+T.

 

 

Just read an article that says we have offered Turner and McBuckets.

 

Celtics are asking for Turner and Warren/or Oladipo.

If we do that, I probably wont even watch the season.
