The Indiana Pacers have had their sights set on Memphis Grizzlies guard OJ Mayo for some time, and today they have finally found a way to get him. The Pacers have agreed to sign and trade Josh McRoberts along with Brandon Rush to the Grizzlies for Mayo.

The Pacers nearly acquired Mayo at the trade deadline in a three-team deal with the New Orleans Hornets, but the Hornets pulled out at the last minute (not at David Stern’s command, in that instance).

The Grizzlies have been looking for another front line piece to back up Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, and McRoberts will fill that role nicely.

Sign of Granger moving and moving George to the 3?

Collison - Mayo - Granger - West - Hibbert
Hill - Jones - George - Hansborough

That is a formidable rotation that has the potential to beat any team. But I think they'll have trouble consistently beating the Knicks and Heat in their conference.

I like the move for the Pacers, and I like it as well for Memphis if Gasol is retained (sounds like that isnt the case though). Mayo was starting to live up to some of his hype coming out of the draft, and I think the Pacers will utilize him just fine.

and hopefully Brandon Rush's ego will fall a bit. Goodness, that guy thinks his crap does not stink. I read his twitter timeline when I need a good laugh.

I still don't get why the grizz want to do this

Probably means they're about to sign Gasol to a massive contract and build around him.
Mayo is an expiring in 2 years and probably wont want to resign in Mempis, he's always been a limelight guy since his USC days, will probably want a big market.

just my guess tho..

Cap flexibility to retain Gasol and to get some quality big man depth behind Randolph and Gasol with McRoberts who had an extremeley soild year. Mayo is about to get very expensive, and keeping him force them into the luxury tax with big deals to Randolph, Gay, Gasol and Conley

I agree, Mayo is a legit player.

It's kind of sad how they treated him last year.

there is only one ball to play with.

randolph , zach, conley ( started to hog a bit too once he signed his fat contract) and i sure hope if they are puting a max for marc his shots are raising too.

simply, not enough ball for 5 offensive players.

12-12-2011, 01:34 PM
i like that team, but dont think they are contenders. They will suffer defensively IMO.

thats not the problem, the problem will be the ball distribution and touches distribution ( and probably it will even lead to chemistry trouble) when Gay walks back into court.

I will forever deffend that last year they only did what they did because gay was out of the picture.

I wouldnt be surprised if they end in the lotto this year,.

Good trade for both sides.

Gotta love the youth and depth of the Pacers squad. Gonna be a fun team to watch this year.

I also love McRoberts and Rush on the Grizzlies.

McRoberts backing up Gasol and Randolph means the rebounding madness doesn't stop once one of the starters goes to the bench.

Rush would be a solid fit next to Conley and Gay since he doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective.

12-12-2011, 01:37 PM

first of all, they changed their style of play with gay still in the lineup. their early season struggles were rotational. so thats bogus.

secondly, for all of these offensive players the one thing memphis could have used in the playoffs more then anything...was a wing scorer.

still, they could have done better for mayo. mcbob is ok but rush is destined to fail. if this is true the pacers are a really fun young team.

I understand everyones concern here, but if this trade goes through I do not think Mayo will start. I think the plan is to have him get heavy minutes off the bench behind George as a scoring threat that can create his own shot. He would be the first option on the second unit. We will have a solid starting 5 and a deep bench that could be starters for some other teams in the league.

PG: Collison/Hill/Price
SG: George/Mayo/Stephenson
SF: Granger/Jones
PF: West/Hansbrough
C: Hibbert/Foster

People dont know about Paul George yet. He is incredibly athletic and versatile. He added 10 lbs of muscle in the offseason. He has All Star ability, all he needs now are minutes and time to naturally progress and he will get both.

In the east the top 2 are clearly miami and chicago. The rest remains to be seen, being as the celtics get older once again and declinded significantly last year in the playoffs and the magic obviously arent getting any better and if dwight gets traded could fall out of the playoff picture completely. Now the knicks did get better on paper but lets see how they play they are a playoff team for sure but not ready to lock them in at #3 which is where they may fit as of now.

And this pacer team is deep and filled with young talent (LOL almost had a thats what she said moment). Look for them to overachieve like the young bulls showed you can do with a lot of hustle i wouldnt be surprised if they crack the top 4 seed in the east.

However on paper, this deal looks great for the Grizz. The only team that had a better offer was probably chicago, but Heisley will not trade OJ to Chicago (since Heisley is from there). Indy was prob the next best option. For some reason our FO has been infatuated with McRoberts, and adding Rush should solidify our outside shooting.

This is a telling sign to me that Marc will sign a extension here and be HAPPY! Now there is one less guy on the team that needs the ball in his hands to be effective. Marc will get more touches Crooner, and now you can finally root for the Grizz!

The Indiana Pacers have had their sights set on Memphis Grizzlies guard OJ Mayo for some time, and today they may have found a way to get him. The Pacers are reportedly working on a deal to sign and trade Josh McRoberts along with Brandon Rush to the Grizzlies for Mayo.

Not being a hater at all. I love the moves that the Pacers are making and have made thus far. Every team looks great on paper until they can prove it on the court. You can't just throw in players on a team and expect them to do well. Granger needs the ball. Mayo needs the ball. West is going to demand the ball down low. It'll take time to adjust and considering this is a shortened season, I want to see how they do before placing them ahead of teams like the Celtics/Hawks, who have proved that they are playoff contenders.

Boston is not close to Top 3 with that roster. The Pacers will most likely be better than Atlanta. They deeper and the Hawks do not have JCraw, Hinrich.

Boston still has their core coming back for at least one more season. I won't throw them out of contention just yet considering the Knicks have no legit point guard, and the Hawks will probably lose Crawford. The Pacers definitely got better with West and will get even better if this Mayo deal goes down, but I'm not placing them higher than the Celtics until they can prove to me that they can play together.

Mayo will be on the second unit if the trade goes through. Granger needed someone to help take some of the scoring load off his shoulders and West is just that.

about the bold part... There would only be 2 players added to this team which has remained almost wholly in tact. Our core players are young with ample room to improve. This team is growing together the right way. Sure there will be an adjustment period for West, but he has his old buddy Collison passing him the ball.

Collison is 24, George is 21, Hansbrough is 26, Hibbert is 25, Hill is 25, If we get Mayo he is only 24. Hell even Granger is only 28. This is an incredibly young group that just added veteran leadership and a solid PF in West.

Rush is a good player. It's a good deal for both teams.

He is good when he is aggressive. When he just hangs around the 3 pt line waiting for the ball he is frustrating. Rush has so much potential, it just doesnt feel like he works hard enough to fulfill it.

Thought this was interesting:


Speaking of deals, the Pacers are having conversations with the Memphis Grizzlies about a possible sign-and-trade deal. The Pacers would send Josh McRoberts and Brandon Rush to the Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo.

Don’t those names sound familiar?

The Pacers tried to send McRoberts and a first-round pick to Memphis for Mayo at the trade deadline last February.

The sticking point in the current negotiations is that the Pacers want to include Rush in the deal. The Grizzlies are trying to unload guards, not add them.

UPDATE: The Pacers are close to making the decision to sign-and-trade for Mayo, but the process is being held up by the idea that Jamal Crawford might opt to sign with Indiana. The Pacers have asked Crawford’s camp to make a decision before the end of the day so they can move forward one way or the other. The San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, and Portland Trail Blazers are among the other teams that have expressed interest in Crawford.

only problem with this is that it is from hoopsworld which declared that they had already agreed to a deal

The article in this story is inaccurate. Nobody pulled out last minute of the trade deadline deal that would of sent Mayo to Indy, they submitted it minutes after the deadline so it was rejected.

Fair deal. Mayo has the most potential in the swap I would think but McRoberts and Rush are solid players.

Nobody really knows. The Pacers say that Memphis backed out, Memphis says the Pacers backed out, and most sources say that NOH was a third team that complicated everything and delayed the process so that it was submitted late

I'm guessing that the Pacers will end up signing Jamal Crawford to a 3 year deal at around 9 Mil a year. Then the Grizz just end up signing McRoberts outright. How's that for a prediction?

I am officially confused. i heard he has been traded in one ear, then the next he has. then the next he has.

make the deal already, this can't be good for either team team chemistry.


3 year 9 million for crawford is an excellent deal though

no offense, but no way. I think a lot of folks forget that most of our team is incredibly young and still have a ton of space to grow.

Collison is 24, George is 21, Hansbrough is 26, Hibbert is 25, Hill is 25, If we get Mayo he is only 24. Hell even Granger is only 28. This is an incredibly young group that just added veteran leadership and a solid PF in West.


You'll be eating those words buddy. :D

I can't see them beating Miami, Chicago, or NYK but we'll see.

That is still to be determined, but with the confidence Vogel gives his players he will have them thinking they could win the championship with Jeff Foster as their go-to guy, that's how positive he is. Also, the Pacers beat all of those teams last year at least once. They beat NYK when they played them back-to-back and Tyler Hansbrough went off for 29 the first game and 30 the next. With this deep of a team anything could happen.

$9m per... If he was willing to sign for $3m a year, he'd be a Knick. Our only hope for Crawford is still a three way sign and trade.

Yeah, but im hoping for OJ, i just think he fits our team better.

Yeah, but the guys at 8pts9secs prove some valid points of why Jamal could be a better fit. I like Mayo's potential though. Go look in the Pacers forum to listen to what those guys have to say about the whole thing.

ive been back and forth, just my personal opinion. I like Crawford too, but i think Mayo fits better.

I'm liking the new Pacers team this year, they'll contend with the Bulls for the Central division. Granger is just as good as Rose, just playing in a small market. And he's never had talent around him.

If Granger were as good as Rose, the Pacers would have been a lot better since Granger got there. I'm not saying Granger isn't good, he's just nowhere near Rose's caliber of player. Rose is a top 5 player in the league, Granger is a top 20 player in the league.

Granger is not near Rose. I dont even know if he is top 20. We're talking about a guy that sat the pines for team USA here.

Mayo needs to run for psd president with the way people on this forum talk about him. Dude is a overated role-player and every season it seems he's the talk of the town. Who gives a ish about mayo?

ha... that's funny... this seems more like wishful thinking rather than sound reasoning...

the pacers will contend for the 4-7 seed... that's an improvement

there's no reason to think he can't be an effective starter. he never really fit in in memphis. he's got upside.

True, but last year with the same core guys they beat LA/NY/Miami/Boston and pushed your bulls pretty hard in the first round. They are a good team and i can see them upsetting someone in the second round if get that 4/5 seed.

Just for reference i do not think Granger is as good as Rose, however, they do play different positions so a comparison is kind of pointless anyway. I think our depth will be our biggest strengths.

no doubt... they will be good... and i think they will replace the hawks/magic in the east...

but they did run into the bulls with injured bigs last year, and while they gave a tough series, they did almost get swept....
