I'm getting sick of everyone thinking Carl Landry is the solution to the Pacers PF spot. Honestly, I just don't understand why he would make this team better. He has played three more years in the league than Hans, yet last year averaged only about 4.6 rebounds per game compared to Tyler's 5.2. Oh, and I should mention that he averaged 0.6 less rebounds in nearly 5 more minutes of game time.
From this we can surmise he is a worse rebounder than Hans.
Carl also averaged 11.8 points per game compared to Hans 11, and Carl was a better percentage shooter with slightly more free throw attempts. But once again, he was in his fourth year compared to Tyler's first, and IMO Tyler has more room to improve here than Carl. In scoring, I would still give the edge to Tyler on potential.
Assists, turnovers and blocks are all fairly similar. Hustle and effort would go to Tyler.
So why should we overpay for a decent PF who is two years older, ways slightly less and is a worse rebounder than what we already have starting for us on a rookie salary? Carl would best be served as our back-up, and he's not worth the money.
I like Carl, and loved him at Purdue, but I think people want to spend money just to make changes. You need to realise that only good moves will help this team, and we have to be wise with the money it's taken so long to free-up. Please feel free to convince me why I'm wrong about this, but having watched him play and assuming he's going to get paid quite a lot, I think he's a bad fit for the Pacers.
