Yes, you're right, Chad Ford has WAAAAAY more resources than most of us can ever hope to. And his ideas SUCK!Originally posted by <b>moTIGS</b>!
I've read most of those articles he's written about how to fix the lottery teams, and for the most part they've been pretty good. Just because you don't agree with something doesn't mean it's bad. He's got more resources than most of us can even hope to. He won't be right 100% of the time, but he's still not that bad.
Artest, Bender, and Foster are ALL THREE restricted free agents next summer. ALL THREE will receive nice offers from other teams.Originally posted by <b>Malakian</b>!
Only Reggie, Jermaine, and Brad are FA next summer. 2 summers from now Artest, Mercer, and Foster are FA. Reggie will either a)retire or b) Take a paycut or be renounced. That in turn frees up cap space to sign Jermaine to a max deal and Brad to about 7 mill a year. The year after that they can just let Mercer walk and then use that space to sign Artest. Or Artest could be traded this year. Also they have exceptions and so forth and Artest could fetch some talent. So the Pacers will really have no problem with FAs.
