The Indy Star is reporting that the Pacers have agreed to a 3-year deal with former Marquette star Travis Diener.  Good signing?

good signing, i believe.  tinsley better watch his back....he might get hurt and never get his spot back.

Fair enough.
Fair enough..probably the 2nd ugliest season I've ever seen from the Ravens.
Flacco kind of is a bum..Yeah I get that he isn't that good..

Cooler yet, is we went to the same high school.  Granted, I graduated the year he was born, but cool none the less.

not so sure he has to watch his back because diener is unproven, i doubt they'll hand over the team to him, i mean they let AJ go and he proved he could handle the starting role.

Travis is a pretty good passer and a decent spot up shooter, nothin spectacular but he is a solid player and dosent force things. He gets his chance to play at the pacers

i liked watching him at marquette. he's a solid shooter. his stats weren't too good last season but i would venture a guess that is because he didn't get much of a chance. but he will this year. tinsley will last about a month before he's down with an injury. once that happens diener will start.

i was hoping to get him last year when scouts thought he was very impressive in summer league.
but stuck behind Nelson and Arroyo isnty easy for anybody to show potential.
if we dont find anymore pgs, he could get decent mins to prove if he can play in the NBA.
we need some luck... hopfully hes a surpirse of 08.

i'd be happy with anyone new at this point.  our pg play has been horrible since tinsley got here.  (except maybe his rookie yr when he did show some promise)

mind you now that rockets have 6 pgs, i wouldnt minded swinging a trade to give them a PF like Murphy for Luther Head kind of trade.

He could be another Anthony Johnson/Erick Strickland type signing, he could really surprise people IMO.  He is like a young poor man's Steve Nash with his style of play.

If he gets good minutes he could well average 3-6 ast per ballgame don't
expect him to get points often although I think he'll average 4-8 points.All and all descent signing but how much did they sign him for?

sounds like a good signing to me, hopefully this kid gets a chance because he has the potential to put it together
