    If the Pacers trade Turner they might as well tank. He's their only rim-protector.

    You’re right.
    My main argument was that the whole Tristan hunt was just not true and evidence seems to show that. This trade is not being expanded. Players have landed in their cities and taking physicals. And you can’t just throw in a 5th team without meeting certain criteria.

    How would we possibly get Turner?

    You're in luck. Both of Nikola's brothers are 7-footers...

    i know a team that just traded their only rim protector and the general response from fans was that they grow on trees.

    He'd be more than great. Makes way too much money though.

    All these speculation on players making way too much money when in reality Morey likely targetting backups no one here knows about.

    Take the sentence you just created and replace the words "Pacers" and "Turner" with "Rockets" and "Capela." See how flawed that logic is? In the same way the Rockets have been better this season when Capela has sat, I think the Pacers have been better with Sabonis at center than with Turner. I don't even think it's likely the Rockets get Turner, but I definitely think there's a strong possibility that he's on the block.

    now we also got to hear that Capela's real value was 2 2nds.
    :rolleyes:

    While the same people just a few days ago were asking for multiple first rounders.

    It is absolutely insane the length some will go to to excuse Tilman.

    It's an easy thing to take for granted. But when you suddenly don't have any rim-protection left the importance of it becomes painfully obvious.Other teams just start driving to the paint with no fear and little resistance.

    In theory, if they include more salary in the four-way deal, wouldn't that increase the amount of money they could take back? So if you start adding up contracts like House, Hartenstein, Clemons, etc., at some point you'd hit a threshold where they could take back $18 million.

    I believe they've actually been at their best with both Sabonis & Turner on the floor together.

    So Indiana would trade Myles, who's a pretty darn good player, for those scrubs and a late first round pick? You have a better chance at winning the lottery than that happening

    Like seriously, how does one even acquire this info. Even if he is a respected part of the media. You can guess that they are targeting a center. But closing in on a deal? Does he get to ask “Morey, what’s going on? Give me something”. And Morey responds “we’re closing in on a deal. I’ll give you a hint, it’s a center from the east”
