    Is there any chance the Pacers rest everyone and give Orlando a chance? A tie for 3 would be beyond my wildest dreams.

    Huge loss. Still holding my breath until we lose to Minny.

    As to Hayward's value, I see it two ways:

    His true value, in the NEW CBA, is around 10. I don't remember if Batum was signed in the new or old CBA, but his salary makes sense under the Old CBA...

    I have no doubt GVC is right on the cap specifics (and thanks for the education GVC). I'm just surprised that there are any limitations trading players going into the draft. Logically, teams would...

    As to the OP, Hayward IS a major trade asset. He's worth a lot to any team that wants the right to match a contract as an RFA, presumably a team with the cap space or resources to scare away...

    The crazy thing about Ty's legacy is this:

    The only thing Ty really had to prove to get another contract was showing he had a system that the young core could excel in. Instead of doing that, he...

    The only untouchable guy we have is Favors. 12 million per is a great contract for a guy with truly elite defensive potential so he only gets dealt if you can replace what he does which is very...

    I agree with two exceptions:

    1) Hayward will never average 6 free throws. He's at 4.5 now @ 36 minutes while also being a primary ball handler. And the few guys who average 6 free throws are...

    Agree completely. But I think there's even a deeper level to this which relates to Hayward handling the ball so much.

    Hayward benefits because nobody bothers to overscout the Jazz, and frankly...

    And remember, on top of this, you can't put Hayward on anybody as a defensive stopper.
  11. Is Hayward playing like he's worried about his box score?

    He's decreased his shots per game by 3 over the last 2 months. He's almost entirely stopped leaking out on the break in order to collect defensive rebounds. When he drives, he never goes all the...

    Then why didn't Hornacek scheme against Hayward? He had PJ Tucker guarding him straight man to man. Never trapped or doubled. And Harpring has been saying on the telecasts that teams are going...

    Thanks to Locke's objective research today, we now know that, over the last 10 games, Hayward is shooting 45% from midrange. And that percentage, in a 10 game sample, of course, is elite.
  14. There are only 19 players in the NBA averaging...

    There are only 19 players in the NBA averaging more minutes than Hayward. Only 6 shooting guards, 4 small forwards. 15/5/5 is inflated by that. Playing less minutes (as he should) on a team with...

    Why not buy out Marvin and RJeff?

    Both would get picked up by contending teams. Both would benefit more from playing meaningful games that would help contending teams see their value as an FA acquisition next year and/or resign with...

    This is an article of faith that originated with Locke that has been accepted as dogma. What does an "ideal player next to a superstar" even mean? Pippen? Because he sure isn't Pippen.

    Locke's endless apologies for Hayward.

    Locke is a master apologist for Hayward, and I just want to make sure I have them all recorded. The reasons I've picked up:

    1. Hayward has struggled being the number one option (never mind that...

    Maybe they should. Freeing up Marvin, and RJeff for that matter, to sign with any team they choose sends a positive message in my book. We let veterans go on to better situations while we play our...

    Fair enough, but was there really not a giveaway for Marvin? Somebody's dead weight expiring in exchange for a second round pick? Even a future one? If there was absolutely no way to pawn him off,...

    10 for Hayward is not very realistic in my opinion. As an RFA, an opposing team has to start the bidding at 12 if they hope we'll flinch. And if he gets no offers, there is no guarantee Hayward...

    I'm at a loss as to why Marvin is still here, but it's hard to figure there was any great market for him or RJeff.

    And by the way, any talk about Marvin needing to be kept so we can resign him...
