Pacers 10th Pick?????
The Draft this year is very deep with solid rotation players. But I think the Pacers Need a Starter from that pick. If not though the draft who Can that pick get Us. Comments or Suggestions Plz
The other guys will break you in...If the Pacers want a starter you have the ask at what position...PG...Well Wall is Gone...and Unless you offer Granger for Wall the Only other PG's in the Draft are Bledsoe??? A long shot at top...Willie Warren or Avery Bradley can play the position too...Now if you Go Two Guard...You gotta think ...Xavier Henry...Paul George or James Anderson...If Wesley Johnson falls he may be a 2G on the Pacers...They're set at Sf..so Hayward, Aminu and Babbit don't make sense...PF has some depth...Ed Davis is a platoon guy...G.Monroe is the Dream of Course ...But he is unlikely to fall...Pat Patterson is the Guy if you want the Best possible scenario...Aldrich at Center is also Possible there...Udoh and Whiteside are also Possibilities
i like henry or bradley for the pick. but rumor has it here that JOB and BIRD wants to trade that pick for a vet. JOB doesnt really like to play rooks.I would trade granger if right deal came along. time to blow it up this team is not good but not bad enough to be horrible it sux. id rather be top 3c horrible then 30-33 win team for 4 yrs in a row feel me.
Maybe Granger for Rubio,16th...and 23rd picks...Get your Point Guard(Next Year) A 2g at 10(Henry) a Big at 16( Udoh, Davis,Patterson Whiteside) and with 23rd get the Best Player available...(Some one will be here that you'll love to get)...Minny Loved Granger...Clear the Cap and get Rubio and the Picks..Those three first rounders...10th(Pacers) 16th and 23rd (T'Wolves) will be good for rebuilding a core...Of Course if Monroe is There at 10 you take him...Wait and see if Henry will be there at 16...He Babbit and Hayward would be the options at 16th...The 23rd pick could get them Hayward IMO...That would be a home run IMO....A New Power Forward to replace Murph and a Guard at 16 and your boy at 23 along with Ricky Rubio...WOW....
Pacers should shop their pick and maybe one or both of their 2nd round picks for a point guard. Heinrich or D Collison maybe???
kirk would be cool hard nose something to prove type player. under the radar like sessions for minn. him and ellington plus 16 and 23 would look lovely for ten and one of those expiring (ford, Murphy)
I think the two most glaring needs are obviously at the point and at center. At point you have T.J. Ford, Earl Watson, and A.J. Price, all of which average under 6 assists per game. You need someone who can get to the rim and kick out to Granger or Rush. I don't know if there is anyone who they can get at Ten who is going to be able to do that in the immediate future. Past that you need a scoring threat in the post. I mean it seems like their bigs play outside in, instead of inside out. Troy Murphy is going to stretch the floor for the Pacers. So they need someone to bang down low, and I don't think Hibbert is the answer. That is why I really like Aldrich right here. He probably isn't going to start right away, but he can come in and get some boards, play tough defense, and score when you need him too.
Oh and I don't like X. Henry here because I think you're basically drafting another Brandon Rush. They both can shoot, play defense, and rebound well for a 2 guard. Henry is a little bigger, but Rush is far more athletic. Rush's biggest problem is that he is to timid on the court, but I don't know if you can call Henry aggressive either. Rush has been consistent, So I don't know if you look to replace him yet, and I think Henry is more valuable then coming of the bench next year. I think Henry will go somewhere that will give him a chance to fight for a starting spot in the near future. I don't know if he'll start next year, but maybe within a year or two. I just don't think you can make a case for him over Rush in Indiana, at least not for next year.
You Make Vaild Points, But I believe Hibbert has more Upside than Aldrich as nba post Scorer. If we Stay at that pick I would love to take Bradley and hope he is the next russel westbrook. Im tried of solid 3yr no potential guys ex: Rush , hansbrough, hibbert. Time to take a chance on a player how's game seems more fit for the pros than it was at texas. Just like Westbrook. Aldrich would be a good pick for a team that is better because he will be solid for the next 2 yrs. But he wont ever be the reason why a team makes a jump fro lottery to playoffs IMO. Bradley has that potential keyword POTENTIAL!!!!!!!!!
