Default who makes our final roster?

pacers current roster:

Darrell Armstrong
Maceo Baston
Marquis Daniels
John Edwards
Jeff Foster
Danny Granger
Orien Greene
Al Harrington
David Harrison
Jimmie Hunter
Stephen Jackson
Sarunas Jasikevicius
Rawle Marshall
Jermaine O'Neal
Josh Powell
Jamaal Tinsley
James White
Shawne Williams

who would you cut and why? let's say indiana is wanting a 15 man roster.

1. jimmy hunter. he's played well for the pacers the past couple of years in preseason, but i don't think they'll take a long term chance on him and he wouldn't get any minutes.
2. rawle marshall. i don't he is a pro talent, at least not yet. there isn't room for him either.
3. it's a toss up between baston, powell, and edwards. never seen baston play, but i'm betting he's not much better than powell. it's beyond me how edwards broke into the league in the 1st place. he's got size no doubt, but he's not very productive. i would like to see some discussion on these 3 guys.

Darrell Armstrong
Maceo Baston
It's difficult for me to say who'll get cut. I know very little about several of these guys, and I think that training camp and the preseason will see a lot of competition for the final roster spots.

The following guys are safe, I assume:
Al Harrington
Stephen Jackson
Shawne Williams
David Harrison

The following guys could be cut, but I think we'll keep them:
Edwards - may not want to eat his contract
Baston - he signed a fairly significant contract, I think
Darrell Armstrong - the Pacers need points, veterans, and leaders, and DA fits all those needs
James White - the Pacers traded up to get him in the 2nd round, but he can be cut with no guaranteed salary

Then, there's a bunch of guys who are at best marginal players and I know little about:
Orien Greene
Jimmie Hunter
Rawle Marshall
Josh Powell

I think the competition for the final spot will come down to these guys. Greene plays the point, so he could have an advantage.

if no other changes are made, powell will most likely be cut along with john edwards and orien greene

Snap Hunter is staying due to his recent contract

leaving us with a lineup of...


not bad...

well, maybe this hunter guy will make it and greene won't. that would be great, cause he always plays well in preseason and deserves a shot IMO. i don't think edwards will get cut cause indy still needs some size, but you never know. he hasn't done much more than rebound and doesn't seem to have much offensive skills.

who better fits indy's new fast transition game...powell or baston?

Default quags

There stilll could be a few more trades, so keep that in mind. Jimmie Hunter has a nice long range shot, and that is a need for the Pacers. So maybe the Pacers have a spot for him.
