So who's that big name? Do they mean, a long name like in Metta World Peace. How about two big names Pau, MWP for Caldy, Bargns, Kleiza.

Or do they mean its someone with a big ass, like Gerald Wallace.
It better be someone along the lines of Deng, Batum, Thaddeus Young.

I don't foresee west playing into a raise. The only teams that'd be interested in his services are veteran teams with a limited budget. Rebuilding teams with cap space aren't going to sign an average starting power forward in their near mid-30s. Anyways, 32-40 million covering two expensive positions for 48 minutes a night isn't a horrible position to be in.

West would have to take a big paycut to reach that 32 mil number. I don't know about a big raise, but I'd be stunned by a big paycut.

Close to 40 mil for two positions is pretty bad for a small market team. Why not just keep Granger. Better player, more minutes, more flexibility, more bang for the buck.
Besides, Bargnani isn't quite a Pacer type. Pacers are all about the boards, playing hard all the time and playing tough D. And it's not really a personnel thing, it's how they are coached by Vogel. It'd be an interesting social experiment to see what Bargnani does in that system, but I doubt the Pacers are as intrigued.

David west is an average PF? 25th in the league in scoring 27th rebounding almost 50 % from the field (off 90% jumpers). Gets to line and can work himself out of double team. And is the first option on his team. There will be line ups for this guy's agent if indy lets him get to the off season.

Without a pay-cut, they'd be approximately 36 million. IMO west will probably get offered 8 million next season. He'll be 33 and he's not a super quality starting player. He's undersized and not quick on his feet.

I don't think you'll find too many teams that Bargs would ideally fit on, but looking at the pacers front court, Bargs could intrigue them with his offensive ability. As mentioned to why granger might be available, why move forward with granger when George can fill his role and you can upgrade another weakness on your team (point guard + secondary scoring)

Really though, I agree with what you're saying, I just see some reasoning why it could work.

Pretty sure I said average starting power forward, and if I didn't, that's what I meant.

For what you're saying, no. He's always been efficient, but he's not a reliable first option or a player who can work out of double teams. He's at the end of his career. Like I said, the teams lining up for him are gonna be the vet teams that won't be able to offer him boatloads of cash
