That is an excerpt from Chris Sheridan's ESPN.com chat.ryan Indianapolis: what do u think of the point guard situation for the Pacers...
Chris Sheridan: Well, it's a mess, really. Anthony Johnson is the man for the second straight season, and I don't think that was the plan going into 2004-05 or 2005-06. Tinseley gets hurt almost as often as Larry Hughes, and Sarunas jasikevicius has not been able to keep up with the pace of an 82-game NBA season. He was used to playing once a week for Maccabi Tel Aviv and dating Miss Universe the other six nights of the week. The grind over here has robbed him of his shot, which was his best asset.
:rofl: at Sarunas... I think that he's right--we need a new point guard. Who are some of the top options out there?
Mike James - He's a Free Agent and so is Peja. Toronto is rumored to having a huge interest in Peja, so maybe a sign-and-trade could be worked out. He is 30, which doesn't scare me at all, but might Toronto. Another option is Jamaal Tinsley and our first round pick. This guy has been tremendous this year, just unbelievable, really. Even though he is in a contract year, I still want him.
Kirk Hinrich - Would probably have to send them either Peja or J.O. in a deal to get this kid. Even though we would get quite a bit more back, I am not down with sending them J.O. at all. We've already backtracked enough here.
Brevin Knight - A pass-first point guard. I prefer him to A.J.
Jason Terry - The Mavs might not bring him back because of Devin Harris. A sign-and-trade possibility.
Earl Watson/Luke Rodnour - Do the Sonics need both?
