Andre Miller

I know many of you guys don't like Andre Miller; you think he's too old and asking for too much money. But if the Pacers really want a solid answer and PG (assuming they can't afford Sessions and don't want to develop any youngsters) Miller would be one that could have an immediate enough positive impact to help this team get into the playoffs right away. Unlike post players, point guards can play effectively until they're a little older. Just look at Steve Nash and Jason Kidd. Yes, Miller is over 30, but I bet he's got 3 or 4 more solid years in him.

The Pacers would have to get him in a sign and trade, and the Sixers have been looking around for a partner for weeks now. Would it make sense for the Pacers to send Foster and Diener to Philly for Miller after they sign him to a two or three year deal starting at around $8 million? The Pacers would still have to sign another cheap post player (besides McRoberts) but the deal makes sense if you like Miller. He's good at running fast breaks, is a natural distributor and is a defensive upgrade over T.J. Ford. The Sixers have looked at Foster in the past, and if they're prepared to get nothing in return for Miller anyway, why not go for a proven rebounding specialist who can help them in the playoffs? Diener, meanwhile, could also help them. Say what you want about him, he can shoot the three, which is more than you can say for just about anyone on Philadelphia's roster. I don't think the Sixers are in rebuilding mode. They'd like to shed their big contracts (namely Brand and Dalembert) but if they can't, I think they're prepared to compete with what they've got, and what they've got is a pretty decent young core including Igoudala, Lou Williams, Thad Young and Maurice Speights. Foster would make their bench tons more legitimate.

With Miller running the point, the Pacers could have one of the most well-rounded 8-man rotations in the league, with Ford coming off the bench. 

PG-Miller, Ford, Price

SG-Rush, Jones

SF-Granger, Dunleavy

PF-Murphy, Hansbrough

C-Hibbert, McRoberts

 

It's not crazy, is it? I think it makes sense.
