Not sure how I feel about this. Good player but not worth BIG BIG money

I suppose it could be possible that Henderson could be a part of that undisclosed trade with our 2nd round pick.  Sign Stephenson and Deng and we look pretty good.

 

Kemba

Stephenson/Hariston

Deng/MKG

Zeller/Vonleh

Jefferson/Biyombo

 

I guess if that did happen McBob is probably gone, but hey worse things have happened.  Considering Cho has said that backup PG is a huge need.  It could be that Deng is the secondary option if we can't land Stephenson.  Then we could probably resign McRoberts and sign a backup PG.

I doubt Chris Broussard actually has a source on that, but a lot of people have speculated about it and I absolutely agree that we should go after him.  Players this young and talented rarely become available as unrestricted free agents, and Indiana will have a tough time keeping him and staying under the tax line.  We may not even have to overpay

 

He's a little out of control on the court at times but players tend to improve on that as they gain experience.  I would love to add a guy with his competitiveness and ball handling ability (we really need someone else who can take the pressure off Kemba at times). 

 

Zach Lowe had a good article a few weeks ago about his upcoming free agency

I have a funny feeling about this..and that is that it will happen.  We'll see what goes down.  

 

Wouldn't be mad about it necessarily.

Ariza, Parsons, or Turner could all be viable options as well at SF.    

 

If we're planning on really seeing what MKG can do this year, keep an eye on PJ Tucker.  He could compliment him well.

Broussard is an idiot. Hope it's true so.

I would be extremely excited! Lance would make the most sense tho regarding FA. He fills a need and def can generate the floor. Instantly upgrade Kemba at P/R.

If it's any comfort for you.  He seemed like he was honestly reporting.  He almost called us Bobcats.  I don't think a guy stuck up the Heat, Lakers, Bulls, and Knicks poohole would report on us if there wasn't some truth.

Agreed.  Not sure if we could land Parsons and Stephenson...maybe Ariza, doubtful for Tuner.  Not saying Deng is the best option....he just definitely not the worst, and he could fill a role we need filled.
