Trade Thad Young to Suns for Chris/Ulis.
At deadline trade Bogdanovic to contender for 1st rounder and a expiring contract (maybe Raptors).
In the draft trade Pacers 2018 first and Leaf or Sabonis to move up.
At end of season or draft day trade Collison for 2nd rounder.
Flip the first rounder from the contender and Oladipo for a future second rounder (maybe Mavericks will take on his contract).
Trade Joesph and 2nd rounder to Nuggets for 2018 first.

All of this opens up cap space for free agency
Dante Exum 4y72m (Jazz won't match because hood and favors are free agents as well and to pay them all would send them way over the cap.)
Gary Harris 4y88m (Denver can create space to keep him so you have to sign him to a little more. But it's not a smart move for a team who needs to pay an elite point guard.)
Resign Robinson III
Sign Amir Johnson 2y24m (2nd year team option). Just to get some veteran leadership.
Sign Nick Young 2y14m (Need backup SF and an elite 3 point shooter.)
Sign Deron Williams 2y10m (2nd year team option.) More veteran mentoring.

Robinson III/Young/Niang
Johnson/Chris/Sabonis or Leaf

Not sure what Suns would want with Young especially giving up promising young assets (especially Chriss who was there lotto pick that they traded up to get last year) to get him and his decently sized contract when they likely are a team building for the future.

I think Indy would be foolish to just dump Oladipo's contract especially when they aren't going to attract any significant FA. Why give up assets to get rid of him in order to overpay similar caliber FA (Exum and Harris neither project as potential stars but solid players) and older FA (Johnson, Young and Williams) . His contract is big and he didn't wow last season but he is still relatively young and will likely be Pacers 2nd best player.

I think Exum would be a much higher priority than Favors for the Jazz and with guys like Joe Johnson and Diaw coming off the books they may even be able to retain Favors depending on how he plays upcoming season.

Nuggets do need a point guard upgrade (I don't believe Joseph is much of an upgrade with Murray capable of running the show) and they will have a decision to make between Harris and Barton on who they want to pay so Harris could potentially be had but I'd say its more likely they let Barton go with the jump Harris made last season.

After all those moves the end result is fairly underwhelming and all the moves are slanted in the Pacers favor (some are possible but I doubt all happen) . Pacers should try and move Collison, Young and Bogdanovic if they can get any young assets/ draft picks for them. They should only trade Oladipo if they actually get assets in return (don't salary dump him) . Moving up in the draft would be a solid idea especially with Sabonis and Leaf kind of redundant and Pacers needing a star to pair with Turner (Porter or Doncic would be ideal case) . Then throwing money at younger FA (most likely restricted) isn't an awful option but it most likely won't yield much if anything. Don't think Pacers need to sign that high of caliber of veterans at this stage of their rebuild where they should be focused on getting their young guys minutes and trying to uncover hidden gems with guys who have spent a decent portion of their time in D-league, overseas and such. It'll be a long rebuild for them but priority should be to tank with the hopes of getting a top talent to pair with Turner who is a budding star.

Agree with most of what Jaw said. I think the oddest thing you have here is flipping Olidipo and a 1st for a 2nd. Olidipo is a young solid two way starter. He's on a reasonable contract. He's a player with solid value.



07 Jul 2017 16:03:29

Pacers-Mitchell, Murray, Bender, Ulis, Johnson (free up space for Jazz)
Spurs- Thad Young, Neto, Sabonis/Leaf (their choice), future 2nd rounder from Suns and a 2nd rounder from either Pacers or Jazz

*Aldridge has already stated he was displeased with the Spurs and will likely decline his player option so it's better to trade him now.*

Pacers Next Offseason
Trade Thad Young and 2 Future 2nd rounders to Jazz for Exum and Mitchell
S&T Miles to Wizards for Oubre Jr. and future 1st
At deadline trade Jefferson (expiring contract) and future 1st for Zach Collins
(Optional)At deadline or after season flip Sabonis or Leaf to Raptors for OG Anuboy
18-19 Lineup
Robinson III/Anuboy/Oubre Jr.
Turner/Ike A.
Team with Huge Upside
Later on if Mitchell, Oubre Jr., and Anuboy turn into starter talent flip Oladipo, Robinson III, and future 1st to clear Oladipo's bad contract.



1.) 07 Jul 2017 09:35:05
All those deals are heavily favoring Pacers. I doubt Young and 2 2nds get you Exum or Mitchell by themselves let alone both of them. After Jazz lost Hayward they'd be wise to keep their two best young talent or at least get better value for them.

The sign and trade for Miles isn't as bad but I doubt Wizards do it especially since they are way over the cap and Miles would surely make more than Oubre's rookie deal so won't work financially.

Similarly Blazers are way over the cap and couldn't do the Jefferson for Collins trade, not that they would since its not great value on a guy you just traded up to get at #10.

Sabonis flip isn't bad value but Raptors would probably prefer Anunboy who can once healthy be a difference maker right away on the defensive end and has solid upside.

Pacers Celtics Jazz Nuggets

Pacers - Harris, Exum, Nuggets 2018 1st, Jazz 2019 1st
Celtics - Favors, Seraphin, Pacers and Nuggets future 2nd
Nuggets -Oladipo, Crowder
Jazz - Young, Chandler or Faried

Robinson III/Niang
Turner/Ike A.




1.) 06 Jul 2017 22:20:17
Crowder is not going to get Favors for one.

Celtics need to first get below the cap to sign Hayward then other deals can get done.

Celtics want a C with more than one year left on his contract.



06 Jul 2017 17:29:44
S&T CJ Miles for Oubre Jr. (Wiz) and future 1st rounder.

Pacers: Clarkson, Deng, Ingram

Lakers: Sabonis, Collison (expiring), 2018 Indy 1st, Leaf, 2019 Indy 2nd.


1.) 27 Dec 2017 12:25:19
interesting idea, but i like keeping Sabonis.

I would do this

Indy; Clarckson+ Ingram+Deng

LA: Collison+Jefferson (expiring) + 1rnd pick Indy 2018 and 2020.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 22:55:33
At this point Ingram, Ball and Kuzma are untouchable.

3.) 01 Jan 2018 03:36:26
trust me, ingram is touchable. magic dealt d-lo in a heartbeat once he knew lonzo was incoming. if moving ingram (with deng) is what it takes to get bring pg in, it will happen.



22 Jul 2017 06:15:56
I know this will never happen but does anybody have ideas on what pacers would have to give up (besides Turner) to get Irving. reply below


1.) 22 Jul 2017 09:41:11
I don't think Irving wants to go in a rebuilding team.

2.) 22 Jul 2017 14:55:53
Irving has no say. So who cares what he wants?

3.) 22 Jul 2017 16:45:17
I think its highly unlikely they get him without including Turner (and even then I think a 3rd team would need to be included) . They would've had a great shot had they not dealt George yet. Them being in the east hurts the value of their draft picks (a team with Irving and Turner would be well on their way to a playoff birth) but they'd likely have to include 1 or 2 of those. Not sure what type of return Cavs are looking for (if they want rebuilding pieces or pieces to keep them competitive) but Pacers top assets are mostly on younger end of spectrum.

Maybe something like:

Irving, Felder, Jefferson and Frye for Oladipo, GR3, Joseph, Anigbogu, Pacers '18 pick (top 5 protected)

I think this would be a solid start but Pacers would have to add more value likely by including a 3rd team and moving Leaf, Sabonis or Young for assets that would be more attractive to Cavs. Oladipo, GR3 and Joseph would give Cavs 3 young players who would all be solid parts of the Cavs rotation right away. Not sure Joseph is quite ready to jump to starting role on a team like Cavs but they can bring in Rose or use Oladipo (I know he was awful as a point guard in beginning of his career) or Lebron as primary play makers. Anigbogu gives Cavs cheap upside (dude is only 18 and before injuries concerns popped up was predicted to be a lotto pick) they can stash on bench and the draft pick would probably fall outside top 10 but leaving only top 5 protected gives Cavs a little more upside.



03 Jul 2017 01:40:56
Any ideas on how the Pacers could acquire Exum or Murray (Spurs). And in another trade Hernangomez or Cauley-Stein.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 02:09:49
Thad Young seems is probably the most tradable asset that the Pacers would be willing to move. The rest of the roster seems either like young players they'd never want to move or guys over the hill on bad contracts that have negative value. Exum and Murray are probably the ones that would be the easiest to get. Juan Hernangomez might be gettable too. Willy Hernangomez and WCS seem pretty hard to get unless Indiana was willing to give up some of their picks or young talent.



16 Jun 2017 00:21:45
Pacers Offseason:

Draft Night Trades-
1.) Thad Young to Orlando for 25th pick
2.) Ellis to Sacramento for 34th pick
3.) Trade Jefferson, 34 and 47 to Brooklyn for 2018 2nd rounder.

Draft Kennard at 18, Jordan Bell at 25

Bring in Hayward (max) and Holiday (4y 80m) to try and sign on the idea of a big three that would dominate in the east. Resign Teague (3y 54m) if Holiday takes more money elsewhere. If Randolph (a return to his hometown and would be a great leader) will accept the mid level exception, then sign him if he will take a pay cut to win.

Hayward/Robinson III

Pacers go all in on rebuild. Fire Mcmillan and trade George.

Celtics trade 2017 & 2018 1st round Nets picks to the pacers and receive - George and Jefferson

Pacers draft Fultz (#1) and Terrance Ferguson (#18)

Pacers Trade Thad Young and #47 to Detroit or Denver for 1st round pick and draft Zach Collins

Pacers let Teague and Miles walk and resign Robinson III and Seraphin and pick up Allen's team option

Celtics: Get superstar in George which will trigger Hayward to sign and be top two if not the best team in the east.

Pacers: Go all in on rebuild and wait out on Cavs and Celtics to have a strong core to be able to contend against the future Bucks and 76ers in the east. Pacers also get brooklyn's and their own lottery pick and could get talent such as Porter in the next draft.

Pacers Lineup:
Fultz/Stephenson/ Ellis
Robinson III/ Ferguson/ Ellis
Miles/ Ferguson
Allen/ Collins
Turner/ Seraphin


1.) 14 Jun 2017 21:13:16
I don't see Celtics giving up that much for George especially without a guarantee of him resigning. Maybe they would if they could sign Hayward too but they will have to make a move if they just want to add his 30 mill per year max contract let alone George's significant contract.

If they moved both Crowder and Bradley they may have enough (and with George and Hayward they'd be expendable especially Bradley who would be too expensive to resign) so maybe putting them and Celtics 2018 pick and a future pick in place of Nets 2018.

I don't see Young a good fit in Denver with Barton, Faried, Galo, Chandler, Arthur and Hernangomez all getting minutes at sf/ pf that Young would play especially giving up #13 for him.

I could see Pistons potentially giving up their #12 for him but they don't have cap space so Pacers would have to take one of their bad contracts which also would help the value a bit (don't think Young is worth a lotto pick in this draft, Pacers gave up a #20 for him when they got him) .

2.) 15 Jun 2017 00:44:11
The Celtics would trade two extremely valuable trade assets, for a potential rental. AND the trade would eliminate ALL of the cap space, even after renouncing rights to Zeller, Johnson, Olynyk, etc. I'm mentioning those players, not because they have value, but the Celtics need to renounce them and more just to create enough space to sign Gordon H. to NEAR max money. Even the above mentioned idea of trading Crowder and Bradley for cap purposes wouldn't free enough space. Not to mention Jefferson has negative trade value.
