Great fit. They'll look at a few bigs now, but the roster is close to set IMO. Maybe scoop up an Ed Davis type in a trade if Portland signs someone? I'd lvoe some cheap gambles like an Andrew Nicholson type

I feel like they should have looked at Marvin Williams as a stretch 4. He may be priced too high though. The Pacers really upgraded this off season. They have an incredible roster. The fight for 2nd place in our division (behind Cleveland of course) is going to be a battle.

And right after I posted that I saw this article. We may not be landing Durant, but this would be a game changer.

We're one of the favorites to land Horford.

Dang, this article doesn't make the Smith signing sound well.

The Pistons are interested in Thomas Robinson too.

It's apparent they are really trying to add those two bigs.

Really like the Smith signing, great value as well. Think he can set the table for our second unit effectively.

I like T.Robinson, but as more of an undersized C than a PF. Doesn't fit our game style, but his motor and rebounding and enforcer mentality could be valuable.

If we get Horford, do we play big and move Harris to SF? Or, do we bring Harris off the bench to lead our second unit? And would he be happy with that role?

Baynes
Harris
Stanley
Bullock
Smith

All of a sudden we have one of, if not the best second unit in the league,

Dre
Horford
Morris
KCP
Reggie

And also one of the better starting 5's in the league.

They would go big for sure. Horford would start. Dre would start. Harris would start at SF. Those guys all make way too much money to come off the bench. Morris would be the 6th man.

Well, Leuer it is. Solid stretch 4 option. Basically a matured version of Ellenson. REally liking our depth. SVG always seems to find the under the radar option and nail it.

Jon Leuer 4 years / 41 mill,

Averaged 8.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 19 minutes last year,

That translates to 16 and 11 per 36 minutes which is pretty impressive.

Shoots 38% from deep,

6'10 and 230 pounds, very athletic.

I'd say he's an upgrade from Tolliver.

Yup. If you look, he isn't far off a guy like Anderson, and is the better defender of the 2. Very good fit for our bench. Him and Smith will work well together.

Yeah, I was reading an article about his 3 point percentage and it broke down where he makes the most of his shots. Seeing that is why SVG wanted him. He hits a lot from the top of the key, which is perfect in those pick and pop situations. SVG likes to do a lot of that with the Pistons offense so you can tell it's why he targeted a player like that.

He has very good numbers as the roll man too, so him and Ish should have a lot of fun. Nice bench trio with Stanley. Impressive Mr.Van Gundy.

And I still think Baynes is one of the better backup C's in the league to anchor our second unit... ^^
