It's never too early to start looking ahead - The Pacer's 2012 Offseason moves/development


Current Depth chart as of game 6 against the Heat.

PG George Hill, Darren Collison, A.J. Price

SG Paul George, Barbosa, Stephenson

SF Danny Granger, Jones

PF David West, Hansbrough, Pendergraph

C Roy Hibbert, Amundson, Fesenko

Choices to be made - Keep or no?: We have around 23 million of space

Barbosa - drop

Amundson - Keep = around 2 mill

Price - drop

Fesenko - drop

Hibbert - Keep = 3.7 million

Hill - Keep = 3.0 million

Which should leave around 14.3 million to have fun with

Updated depth chart after signings

PG George Hill, Darren Collison, _________

SG Paul George, _________, Stephenson

PF David West, Hansbrough, Pendergraph

C Roy Hibbert, Amundson, _________

Now that everyone should be caught up, this is what I think we should do in the 2012 offseason.

There are two major needs: another big man and an instant scoring threat off the bench.

To achieve these goal I suggest:

We draft Festus Ezeli, center from Vanderbilt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOBYpDJu5A0

He has good length, strength, shows good shot blocking ability (lateral jumps/positioning), a presence in the post , and he can score. Foul trouble issues from time to time, which could hurt Hibbert's rest time.

Then we should make a move to sign Deron Williams. I know this is what everyone has been saying, but for intents and purposes, this would put the pacers over the top . To do this we would have to do a signing combined with a trade. I purpose trading Collison (even though I like him).

Plan B would be signing Jamal Crawford as an instant scoring threat off the bench.

Our new depth chart to start the 2012-13 season

PG Deron Williams, George Hill

SG Paul George, Stephenson,

SF Danny Granger, Jones

PF David West, Hansbrough, Pendergraph

C Roy Hibbert, Ezali, Amundson

We would have little to no cap room.

More Possible depth chart: a more Pacer like line-up.

PG Darren Collison, George Hill

SG Paul George, Jamal Crawford, Stephenson

SF Danny Granger, Jones

PF David West, Hansbrough, Pendergraph

C Roy Hibbert, Ezali, Amundson

This leaves about 8.3 million left in the cap
