Very nice move for the Pacers. They are looking more and more dangerous with this added bench scoring.

I'm actually glad he's gone from the Raptors. I always thought he was a ball hog, which was the only reason WHY he was scoring so much. I never felt he made the team better.

Umm...because they don't really need Barbosa and are trying to rebuild. Jerryd Bayless is more than capable of replacing Barbosa and will likely put up 18+ ppg, 4 rpg, and 7 apg now that he'll get more minutes with Barbosa gone. Every time Bayless has gotten significant minutes he's done extremely well so expect big things from him in the coming months. In fact, over the last 10 games or so last season, Bayless averaged something like 23, 3, and 6 while playing 30-35 mpg.

Those are some very bold predictions for Bayless...He does occasionally have the odd good game here and there, but there's no way he gets seven APG with the way he plays, shoots too often, and does not look to pass. He does not play like a PG, but at least he can offer good defense at the PG position.

Did the Pacers really need Barbosa?

Allegedly they are making Collison the backup and starting Hill. Barbosa then become backup SG to George.

I think it shows they are serious about making a deep playoff run this season, as they obviously dont believe in Lance Stephenson for even 10 mpg.
If you wanted to develop Stephenson, it could hurt that a little.

No they aren't. That all stems from Indy's beat writer, he's got some weird agenda that they NEED to start Hill at the point (even though he's not a PG and the numbers back it up) since they traded for him. Vogel's said, in not so many words, that Collison's the starter.

How are my comments very bold predictions when he's already proven he's more than capable over and over? Virtually every time he gets starter minutes, he plays extremely well. This hasn't happened once, or twice, or three times, but at least 20-25 times during his four year NBA career.

He's currently averaging about 11 ppg, 2 rpg, and 4apg, but if given the minutes (30+ a game), and taken off the coaches short leash (which he's always been on), expect for him to put up Kyrie Irving type numbers or very close to it for the rest of the season.

Actually I have heard Vogel talk about Hill being a potential starter at least twice.
He isnt a true PG, but he is a good player. I'd rather start at good combo guard at the one, than a truer PG who has played as poorly as Collison in March.

George Hill can light it up.

I think we'd be a better team with Hill starting at the point.
