10.Tracy "T-Mac" McGrady

-This off season the Detroit Pistons singed SG-T-Mac to a one year deal for next to nothing.  Today T-Mac averages 8.4 PPG, 3.4 RPG along with a PER of 15, but everyone knows his numbers are only good because he wants to get paid and show everyone that at age 31 he can still play the game.  Don't expect the pistons to give T-Mac what he wants next season since they are going to have their hands full trying to re-sign G-Rodney Stuckey to a long term deal so they can continue to re-build their once dominant team around him.  Expect both Stuckey and T-Mac to get some good looks from the Pacers because as Pacers fans we Hoosiers  and out of state Pacers fans have to admit 2 Piston's guards surrendering to the Pacers sounds like a good idea.  

11.Marcus Banks

-In November, the New Orleans Hornets traded SF-Peja Sotjakovic (who was recently picked up by the Mav's for the rest of the season) and G-Jarryd Bayless to the Toronto Raptors  for C/F's Marcus Banks and David Aderson along with a Guard in Jarrett Jack who would still be a Pacer if it wern't for TJ Ford, Mike Doneleavy Jr, and Troy Murphy's stupid fat ass over priced contracts.  Today Marcus Banks is getting paid almost 5 million dollars by the Hornets in a contract year to put up 2 PPG, 0 RPG and have a PER of 6.8.  Expect the Hornets to release Banks almost as fast as the Pacers are going to release Mike Dunleavy and TJ Ford next season.  And don't expect the Pacers to look at signing Marcus Banks either the man only puts up 2 PPG.  

 

12.Jamal Crawford

-After bouncing around a few teams through trades SG-Jamal Crawford has found a pretty snug home in Atlanta.  Next season Crawford however will likely move else were since he is putting up 15 points on roughly an 11 million dollar salary and is ranked as the #1 shooting guard in Bleacher Reports top 10 best available free agents of 2011.  This offseason, Crawford should get some good looks from the Pacers.  But I have my doubts they can afford him and I kind of have a bad feeling Jamal Crawford in going to be a big waste of money this off season.  

13,Tayshaun Prince

-Tayshaun since being drafted by the Detroit Pistons in 2002 has done allot for his team.  But Tayshaun is also a high priced player who had been shopped around in the trade market by the Pistons the past couple of years. Which along with Stuckey being a free agent is why he is likely done as a Piston and will sign with another team shortly after he is released.  I would also like to ad the Pistons letting Tayshaun go will likely be a costly mistake on their part.  Now although 3 Pistons surrendering to the Pacers would be nice I have my doubts about the Pacers being interested in Tayshaun, age is starting to become a problem for him and I dunno how athletic he is anymore.  

14.Shane Battier

-Here's another player from the Memphis Grizzlies who will likely be released so the team can afford C-Marc Gasol.  Plus you gotta admit at just over 7 million the Grizzlies are not getting their money's worth on Shane Battier who averages 8 PPG, 4.7 RPG with a PER rating of roughly 12.  Plus Battier plays the same position as Rudy Gay who puts up more points then anyone on the team aside from Zach Randolf who is only doing good because he is on the last year of his contract and wants to get paid so he can slack off next season and become lazy like Jamaal Tinsley.  Don't expect the Grizzlies to make an effort to sign Battier next season and definitely don't expect Bird to be interested in a guy who played SF for Duke the Poop that Makes you wanna Puke after he releases Mike Dunleavy and TJ Ford.  

15.Maurice Evans

-A few seasons ago Maurice Evans somehow ended up with the Washington Wizards in a trade.  Today Maurice Evans is getting paid 2.5 million dollars to put up 4.8 points per game in the final year of his contract.  Expect Evans to be released by the Wizards as soon as the final buzzer sounds for their last game almost as fast as TJ Ford and Mike Doneleavy are released from the Pacers.  Then expect Evans to sign with a different team for much less.  This offseason the Wizzards will also pose allot of competition for the Pacers in the free agent market since they have allot of guys set to become free agents.  And don't expect the Pacers to go after Evans either he will be 33 next season and plays the same position as Danny Granger & Paul George.
