Final Move: Marcus Banks?
• Marcus Banks: Perhaps the best defensive point guard in the league and an improving shooter. Averaged 12 points while hitting 36 percent of 3-pointers after trade to Minnesota last season. Pacers already have four veteran point guards under contract and would have to get rid of one or two if they sign another. Could be worth part of the mid-level, however.
Found that in a newspaper talking about prospects for the pacers; however, I've been interested in this guy for a while. I believe we gave buckner about half of the MLE. What do you think of signing armstrong to an assistant coaching job as has been rumored, and giving Marcus banks a 3 year contract for half the MLE or about 2.7M a year. He averaged 12pts, 5assists, and 3 rebs after moving to Mini, and would allow terry more freedom to play SG.
