THE ISC OFFSEASON REPORT



Indiana Pacers
32-50 4th Central


Point Guard Earl Watson T.J. Ford
Shooting Guard Brandon Rush Luther Head
Small Forward Danny Granger Mike Dunleavy
Power Forward Troy Murphy Josh McRoberts
Center Roy Hibbert Solomon Jones

Bench: Jeff Foster, Tyler Hansbrough, Dahntay Jones, AJ Price

Free Agents: T.J. Ford, Luther Head, Earl Watson

Draft Picks: 10 & 40

Offseason: Unlike most teams, this off season is not going to damage the Pacers, unless you think Ford's 10 and 4 are irreplaceable. Bottom line: The Pacers stink, and they will stink for a LONG time. You could easily swing Granger to several teams for building blocks, but are you getting a top 10 pick for anyone else on this team? I mean face it- Greg Monroe or Wesley Johnson for anyone else on this team, other than MAYBE Troy Murphy, is going to get you laughed at. I would say you need to blow this team up, but it looks like they already have, but just had Horrid luck afterwards. The Problem is a good chunk of the cap is taken by cruddy players, Ford is at 8.5M, Foster is at 6M, Dunleavy is at 10. For some reason I don't see Granger at 10M picking up their tab at a bar. Even Murphy at 11M is a little overpaid- but I'll take that.


Three Scenarios

1. The Pacers get either Greg Monroe or Ed Davis, and they turn out to be quality NBA players. Trade Tyler and Dunleavy to a contending team looking for points (think what happened to Wally Szczerbiak) and working better bench deals, the Pacers need to start stocking 2nd rounders in Europe.
