instant improvement for the Pacers, get rid of Tinsley. If he plays this half a season the Pacers will be even worse than they will be without him. But if Larry and Donnie can settle down real help is on the way. Everyone say Eric Gordon!!!!!!!!!!

I agree that Mo Williams is worth the risk. Hey, it's just money right? There is another very stout presumtive draft class coming next year, so it probably is a good time to tyake the rebuilding hit. Trade JO for youth, picks, and cap relief. DO NOT trade for Jefferson and Kristic. They are enough to keep us middle of the pack, but not enough to make us a real threat, even in the East. Remember they played with Kidd and couldn't get it done. How will they be better playing with JT?

I like your thinking. But if the fans try and pressure the Pacers into using their exemption and they pilfer more money away under the cap it will ham string them financially; future, for the future! Bird wants to win now! The Pacers bring in help and struggle into the play-offs and lose in the first round, everybodies going to be unhappy! They can keep struggling to figure something out and present mediocrity or start working to build a future. They've pretty much tied their hands with the salaries taken on by the Golden State trade. If these new guys produce and O'Brien is able to work some magic it may not be so bad! ESPN TRADES. COM is a good way to see if any trade would work under the cap.

Mo is not looking at the Pacers. Milwaukee can offer him a full-meal-deal on a contract. Also, he's visited Miami. Why come to this mess of an organization?

I sincerely believe that this fan base completely undervalues the assets the Pacers currently have. Adding talent such as Mo Williams to play with Granger, Williams, Daniels, Foster and O'Neal could push these guys way up the capability scale in the East (THIS SEASON). I'm sure Williams would love to play with this group. We need help on the defensive side of the point guard position. If they get that glaring hole filled then they could be right back in the mix.

You are the only one outside of Larry and Donnie that feel this way. Williams, per multiple sources, is down to Miami and Milwaukee. Miami has offered the full mid level exemption. Cleveland, the Lakers, and the Pacers are way behind. Further, after sitting floor level numerous times, until Mike Dunleavy quits there will be no defense.

Why the lack of moves for the Pacers? It is so disappointing...the team we currently have cannot win and since Oden is already in the NBA why are we shooting for last place? Pacers basketball is boring and falling apart!

Personally, I think Cardinal's pretty smart. What other job can you sit on your a$$ for 2 hours, watch a ball game, and get $80-90,000 for doing it? More power to those guys. The Grizzlies are the morons that overpaid for him. I'd take the money too. But yeah, he's a major bust for the contract he signed.
