J.O.?


I haven't seen this discussed anywhere so far, and I'm curious: how do you folks feel about bringing Jermaine O'Neal back next year? He'll be a free agent, and with the inconsistency he's had, I imagine he's going to have to prove himself with a one year veteran's minimum somewhere in search of a new, more lucrative contract down the road. All signs point to JO being open to the idea-- he made a point to say how much Indiana means to him in the Malice in the Palace piece, and he also went out of his way to praise the Pacers before a game at Boston earlier this year. He's certainly not a guy we could rely on to play 82 games, but if we're willing to do the same for Jeff Foster, why not keep him around for when he's actually healthy? He might be the effective backup we're looking for behind Roy Hibbert or David West. If the Pacers end up drafting a young center to back up (or god forbid, replace) Hibbert in the long term, J.O might even serve as a good mentor. Of all the guys involved in that mess a few years ago, J.O. really stuck out to me as the guy who wanted and tried his best to make it work. What do you think?
