We needed to get another one started. So recommend this if you want and we can continue discussing potential moves for the Pacers in one spot.
I had one I was thinking about. Wanted tosee if anyone would be interested. Cleveland had been rumored to get the #8 pick from Detroit for taking on the last couple years of RIPs contract and then there was supposedly a buy out for him. I guess Detroit wanted more than just cap relief for the #8. So what do you guys think is there something we could put together, that would benefit all involved? Would you guys even be interested in this years draft?
I could see something like RIP and the #8 for our 2nd round pick and D.Jones or whoever. I wouldnt mind having RIP a year then trade him as an expiring/wily vet. He's in tremendous shape and plays like Reggie, constantly running his man around and through screens. He's automatic with his midrange game and could bring a championship mentality and veteran presence. Not to mention we could get maybe an Alec Burks (or Biyombo etc.) as well, to eventually take his spot at #8. Plus, we'd still have the #15 to do whatever we wanted with.
I really like the potential in dealing for the #8 and RIP, what do you guys think?
