If the Pacers have any plan of signing a point guard from the free agent pool, they had better act quickly. So far, all of the known targets (Jordan Farmar, Raymond Felton, and Kyle Lowry) have either been signed or offered contracts from teams not named the Indiana Pacers. It's shocking they all turned down the riches of a one-year, $3.5 million contract and a near-guarantee starting gig to play for the blue and gold!
Lots and lots of options have floated around the FanPost board over the last two weeks. Most have been trade possibilities. While I must admit they are fun to read, IC Nation is batting 0.00 in the trade department thus far.
Allow me to offer two possible players the Pacers could potentially target via free agent signing.
Rafer "Skip to my Lou" Alston and Jannero Pargo.
Both are NBA journey men and all have had a taste of starting for different NBA franchises. Both players fit the JOB PG requirements (penetrate and pass, decent 3pt shooting) and have played one-year contracts in the past. Neither are considered franchise guys and both would be receiving pay raises should they accept Birds lucrative offers.
Keep an eye on them. Start to like them. I think you will be surprised at what they bring to the table.
