My Ideas for the 2012 Pacers Team

The Pacers are not the kind of team that will be able to grab the BIG UFA's, but there will be players available that we could grab due to their history of playing ball in Indiana. Here are three players that I think are good 2011 options. None of them scream home runs, but neither were Jalen Rose, Derrick Mckey, or Sam Perkins(recalling the 2000 team.)

Mike Conley Jr.- will be a UFA in this Class, along with AJ Price would be a solid PG combo

Greg Oden- Due to his Injuries, he will be a cheap option and the Pacers can sell a Redemption story. I know its a risk, but if he cant be the man he can still be a solid backup to Roy Hibbert

Carl Landry- he just got traded to the Kings, If they pick up his player option he is an UFA at the end of 2011

Also with some Draft luck we could either get John Wall or Evan Turner in this draft(as long as the Pacers play along and LOSE!). Assuming we get Evan Turner we can play him with Brandon Rush and have a servicable SG rotation

Here is the 2012 lineup which appears to be decently rebuilt, along with the fact it doesn't include what we can get with the Expiring Foster, Murphy, Ford, and Dunleavy contracts.
