Jremaine says he doesn't want to be part of a rebuilding team but with one good pick we could be right back in the mix. An to walk away from 40 mil is crazy. If he wasn't so injury prone maybe we would've made it this year.

I haven't heard/read that. In fact, as of yesterday an article on Pacers.com stated he hasn't made a decision. Seems a bit stupid for a guy who played 1/2 a season to make a statement about rebuilding -- especially when the Pacers were only 2 games away from making the playoffs.

Got a Link?

You're absolutely right.  For a declining player to opt out of that much money is completely nuts.  Still, I'd love for the Bulls to take him (at a cheaper price).  Haha.

id love to cut his and daniels salaries off are payroll.

we'd lose 28M of next years 68M.. and get to 40M.
trade tinsley to a team challenging.. and cut it down to 34M.
draft a pg at pick #11. like ty lawson.

or something.

#11 -- Murray -- Diener
Dunleavy -- Rush
Granger -- SWilliams
Murphy -- Diogu
Foster -- Harrison

34M roughly.

I will not be surprised if he is packaged in a trade to the Knicks that would include Eddie Curry. With the way Dunleavy and Granger have emerged this season plus the constant improvement of a still young player in Tinsley, the Pacers look like they are ready to redirect their focus to a young, talented, contender in the East.

Tinsley isnt all that young he'll be turning 30 next season i believe, he could still get better if he stays healthy but if he cant stay on the court in his 20s then what should lead the team to believe he can in his 30s
