I just dont think Landry makes the Pacers better.

Im willing to see what Baston,Murphy,McRoberts,Nesterovic,Hibbert and Foster does this year before the Pacers add another player to the frontline.

okay fair enough, but I just personally think Baston and Nesterovich were taken on because of their expiring contracts and Foster will likely get dealt sometime between now and next offseason, cause even though he is a favorite of Jim O'Brien he deserves to play and he doesn't look like he's in their future plans.


Cool.

Lets say Baston and Nesterovic leave and Landry joins. Would u still look for a PF/C that's proven or would u wait for Landry to develop?

I'd personally develop a young player at that position.  U look at Granger, while a very good player, he is still improving.  Rush is a shooting guard and it generally takes 2 guards the longest to develop.  So its not like the Pacers are making a championship run this year or even next, so might as well develop as much young talent as possible.  Thats my personal theory though.  And frankly, the ideal situation would be to somehow win the lottery next year and draft Blake Griffin, but thats obviously highly unlikely.

Lets say the Pacers improve to 40+ games and then 40+/50 next year.
Do u think a thrid year player will be the answer in frontline to get us to at leats the EC finals?
If your talkin about the draft, then will nver gel into the threat we used to be. Yes u have to bring along talent as you pursue your goal, but right now the Pacers do have somewhat of a core in Dunleavy and Granger.
Foster has been here since Reggie. I dont think they should be lookin to build for 4 years.
