    Could the Indiana Pacers trade for Rajon Rondo?

    in Basketball

    If Rajon Rondo is truly available, there is one team where he'd be such a good fit that it might make the Miami Heat the second choice among oddsmakers to win the NBA title.


    And if Larry Bird can get his hands on Rondo, the Indiana Pacers would be that team.


    Word was spreading on Twitter yesterday that Celtics GM Danny Ainge was seeking two unprotected first-round draft picks in any deal involving Rondo, and I tweeted my immediate reaction -- the Pacers have probably already made a call to see if that is true


    I discussed this possibility even further in this interview with Chris Moore and Brian Jones of CBS Sports Radio, also offering my thoughts on the possibility of Carmelo Anthony and/or Kevin Love getting moved (no and no).


    But let's delve into the Rondo to the Pacers possibility, and see if it could make sense for both teams. 


    _ First, the Celtics would want to move Gerald Wallace's contract in that deal, and the salaries for Rondo and Wallace add up to  $22.06 million.


    _ Second, two unprotected first-round picks from the Pacers are not the equivalent of, say, two first-round picks from the Bucks. So my guess would be that Indiana would have to throw in a third first-rounder (and they could not include their 2014 pick, since that is already going to the Phoenix Suns)


    _The Celtics would not want any onerous long-term salary commitments in this deal, but they would want a serviceable player if they had to take back a second player aside from Danny Granger ($14.02 million expiring deal). That player could be George Hill, who earns $8 million in each of the next three seasons.

    What the Paul George injury means for the Indiana Pacers and USA Basketball

    in Basketball

    Paul George suffered a guesome injury a few days ago in the USA Basketball scrimmage. What does this mean for the Pacers in 2014-15? What about the direction of the Pacers going forward? Should they make a rebuilding move before or during this season? Can they even make the playoffs this season? In regards to USA Basketball, will this change things going forward? Will guys elect to not play in international play, or will their teams restrict players from being a part of USA Basketball?

    What do Indiana Pacers need to get to the next level?

    in Basketball


    When you make it to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat, you are an elite team. Period.


    But that does not mean you are a legitimate championship contending team.


    And if the Indiana Pacers are going to take that next step, they need to upgrade their backcourt in some way. George Hill and Lance Stephenson are nice players ... but that's the nicest thing you can say about them. When one of the other, or both, had a bad game in the playoffs, the Pacers usually lost.


    So what is the cure?


    Well, for starters, Rajon Rondo is out there to be had. So is Eric Gordon.


    Do the Pacers have the assets to acquire either of them? That's the tough part of the equation. Boston wants no part of George Hill's contract, which pays him $8 million per season for three more years. Boston wants no part of Gerald Green. It's a been-there, done-that sort of thing.


    Certainly Paul George and the expiring contract of Danny Granger could get it done, but Larry Bird would never trade his best player for a wingnut like Rondo. But what about Granger and three future first-round picks? Would that get it done?


    I discussed that issue, along with the additions of Chris Copeland and C.J. Watson in this interview with Michael Grady and Joe Staysniak on 1070-The Fan in Indianapolis this morning.
