Default My 2008/09 Pacers Team.

First off, let me say this is MY OPINION. It's what I THINK, so don't flame me for it.

First off; address the problems on your roster:

Jermaine O'Neal
07/08 Salary: 20M
08/09 Salary: 21.3M
09/10 Salary: 23M

That's alot... TOO MUCH MONEY. Luckily he has an unrestricted ETO though.

Troy Murphy
Making around 10-12M a year for the next 2 seasons.

Averaged 12/7 on 45% shooting this year. Not worth that much money.
Jamaal Tinsley
A top PG in this league when healthy... but that's the problem, he usually isn't.

Still 3 more years on his contract.

__________________________________________________ _

KEYS

Danny Granger
Young talent that has future to maybe become a 24/8 type of SF. Nice size at 6'9 230 for a SF. Can be a future star in this league, and has an extremely cheap contract.

Averaged 19/6 on 44% shooting this year.
Hopeful 2008/09 stats: 22/7

Mike Dunleavy
A 28 year old with a very similar body to Danny Granger. He's also 6'9 and will be the SG next year. Will be a nice 2nd option MAYBE 3rd. Just need him to be consistant and get around 18/5 again next year.

Averaged 19/5 on 48% shooting this year.
Hopeful 2008/09 stats: 18/5

Jeff Foster
A VERY good rebounding center. Has a 6'11 250 lb body, but he's playing in the east so he only has to worry about Howard. The Pacers just need him to clean the glass, a poor mans Marcus Camby (minus the blocks). Averaged 9 rebounds in only 24 minutes a game this year.

Hopeful 2008/09 stats: 6/12

__________________________________________________ _

2008-2009 Season Plan:
Draft:
1st rd: D.J. Augustin - What can I say? You need to improve at the point.
2nd rd: D.J. White - Drafted two DJ's. Where can you go wrong?

Off-Season:
Terminate O'Neals contract. There's no value for him.

Sign Antawn Jamison. He's not a great defender in the paint, but I think we're big enough at the 2 and 3 to help a little with that.

Sign James Jones for a nice back up at the 2 and 3 off the bench. Will provide a lot of energy due to his 3 point shooting.

2008/09 Starting Lineup:
PG: D.J. Augustin / Diener
SG: Mike Dunleavy / James Jones
SF: Danny Granger / James Jones
PF: Antawn Jamison / Diogu / White
C: Jeff Foster / Diogu / White


This is just my opinion, you may completely disagree with me.

I think you need to watch these guys play more before you can critique them. Foster isn't anything like Marcus Camby. And if you're going on mere statistics that you see, then you should take into account that Murphy has gotten 18/8 since the break, and Dunleavy 22ppg since the break.

Default Re: My 2008/09 Pacers Team.

My roster would look something like this:

C-Randolph/Foster/Murphy
PF-Lee/Murphy/Randolph
SF-Granger/Williams/Lee
SG-Dunleavy/Williams/Murray
PG-Marbury/Augustin/Diener


We trade Jermaine O'Neal, Jamaal Tinsley, David Harrison to Knicks for Stephon Marbury, Zach Randolph, David Lee.

We draft D.J. Augustin in the draft.

You can't just simply terminate a contract because you don't feel like paying him the money. It's a contract, a player in the NBA can't hold out because he feels like he's underpaid. For a good rundown check out this article; http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/columns/story?id=1730729

Marbury wouldnt be bad. I mean, hes getting paid as much as JO but has one less year on his contract. Marbury is not going to be playing for NY next season, everyone knows that...Catz put up a pretty decent trade IMO

I'd be more concerned about Randolph than Marbury.

Yeah, now that Donnie's there I'd almost say there's absolutely no possible deals with NY. Maybe Marbury for JO, straight up. Which is a shame, we should have gotten in on the NYK raping when it was good.

before Francis got traded from NY...I really wanted the Pacers to trade JO and Dunleavy (this is before he broke out) for Francis, Frye and Crawford

Francis was an expiring contract

Time bombs?? Who? JO? Mel-mel? Well maybe Mel out in the bright lights of the city, but I think JO would be fine.
