Granger, Ford for Stojakovic, Collison.

Indiana gets a huge expiring to add to their list of expiring contracts. Also a promising young point guard. They'll probably buy out Peja's contract so he could return to NO for a much much smaller contract.

New Orleans teams Paul up with another all-star and also an explosive back up point.

Would this be enough for Paul to stay?

it would help, even if you don't contend the lakers with Okafor and West as 5 and 4. I don't see how they can stop Bynum/Gasol/Odom.

However Granger is an all star, Collison a rookie who played well one year. I'm pretty sure is not enough.

But the way I see it Indiana is gonna go on rebuild mode anyways after this season.
No point in keeping Granger who is like 27 years old.

Granger is in his primes. Next year Indiana will have 40 mln on cap, a former all star in his prime and  a bunch of good young pieces. Having a plyer like Granger could mean sometihng on attracking others FA.

More, at february deadline, they can send some piecies (Murphy, Dunleavy) to teams in playoff chase for picks or youngs.

I think they'll move Granger only for a couple of good young pieces, not just Collison.

It would take a package of something like Derrick Favors and Terrence Williams to get Granger off the Pacers hands.  I think you guys severely underestimate how good Granger is, he just plays on a horrible team.  His statistical output the last two seasons are better than anything Reggie Miller ever put up.
