Default Name the Pacers team needs

Name your team's TEAM NEEDS, in order of importance.

What positions need to be filled the most?
What specific skills should the players at that position have to best compliment the players already there?

Post the top few most important needs the team has to fill this summer, via the draft/free agency/trades/etc.

- A starting PG, it's uncertain. Brevin Knight? Marcus Banks? Give Tinsley a third chance? Anthony Johnson?
- What to do with Peja?
- A defensive big who can block shots (Elson/Cato/Kandi/Nazr)
- A solid swingman, starting or bench. Granger might play there, but that's not clear yet. (Buckner/Jumaine Jones/Rasual Butler)

If the Pacers trade jermaine o'neal for nothing, they might as well let peja go, or sign-and-trade him, and rebuild from scratch

i think the major concerns with pacers are the C and PG positions...if Tinsley can stay healthly this year, then its a bonus, if not, i think Johnson did a great job in the playoffs. But they really need to address their C position. I think the best C for the pacers would be Joel Przyilla. Hes a solid C that loves to bang around, and this will let O'Neal return to his normal position at PF. Ben Wallace would also be good, but i dont think the Pistons will let him go. Now that Bender's contact is done, the Pacers have a little more $$$ to spend out there. I also wonder whats going to happen with Al Harrington next year, and them letting go of Peja. He would be a great SF in Indy. That would leave the line-up like this....

PG - Tinsely
SG - Jackson
SF - Al Harrington
PF - Jermaine O'Neal
C - Joel Przyilla

What we need is a good center and a point guard who doesn't get injured every 12 games.
