    Granger for Pierce?

    I think Ainge could make a deal of Granger and Plumlee for Pierce.

    It gives Indy a guy who can score off the bench with playoff experience.

    It gives the C's a legitimate SF and a young athletic big man in Plumlee.

    Ainge can go back and get the guy he missed out on by a few picks in Granger.

    Nice idea! But Fierce is right so it's on the owners.

    Yeah but with the repeater tax you are getting younger without blowing it up. If Wyc doesn't mind paying the tax while still being competitive.

    Indy would never do that deal......

    Re: Granger for Pierce?

    Indy will trade Granger.  There is no doubt about it.  Granger hasn't played in a while, so they are more likely to trade him at the trade deadline next year.  If Indy loses West this summer, they will need a PF.  Granger can play some PF too. 

    He is in a contract year, so he will show up in good shape.

    Granger for Pierce, Indy will find a much better deal than that.

    Indy probably could find a better deal but look at them now. Think about how many times their offense gets stagnant and can't score. PP is a natural scorer.

    Yes, I'm aware of the repeater tax but someone is going to pay it to win.

    PP is old and slow. His scoring is and will never be what it used to B.

    Re: Granger for Pierce?

    Granger just makes 14 million, Pierce is on the books for 15, then the deasl expire

    Granger could make us slightly better, but not contender level better, so that deal is pointless

    If we're ging to swap PP for an injury risk player making 14 million I'd rather it be Eric Gordon, we have Jeff Green and need a young SG, if Gordon can stay healthy he's a stud young 20ppg guy.

    I mentioned earlier that I would trade Lee (or Terry if they prefer), Bass and a 1st rd pick for Gordon as well

    So if they waive Pierce, the entire $15M comes off the books and they can sign another big free agent up to $14.9M and avoid the repeater or luxury tax ?

    If they 'waive' Pierce they have to pay a 5 million buyout that stays on the cap, with KG still here for 11-12m a year the C's would have no cap space

    If they amnesty Pierce AND KG retires (has to file papers) then they would have something like 13m they could offer as a starting point (Basically a 4/60 deal) for Josh Smith, Al Jefferson or Andrew Bynum.

    In between PP turnovers, ya mean, right? Ain't no tax gonna stop that deal from happening if Indy was willing to do it......
