Exclamation Pacers Decline Option on Daniels

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Pacers Decline Option On Daniels
Quote:
The Pacers will not pick up the option on the contract of Marquis Daniels, according to the Indianapolis Star.

The option on the guard's contract for the 2009-10 season was worth $7.5 million.

Daniels will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. It remains possible that Indiana could re-sign Daniels to a long-term deal at a lower annual rate.
Sign Daniels and Marion

Are you serious?
I'm not talking 7.5M obviously..That's why they declined. But for the MLE, you wouldn't have Daniels?

If you're gonna start Delfino, you may as well waive Bosh because he's as good as gone.

I'd sign Daniels.

Start Delfino and maybe Marion at the wings.

If Marions gone then Delfino and Daniels.

I would rather take Delfino because he likes it in Toronto, if he signs he wont want out, and he is younger. Especially know that we got rid of Kapono, Deronzan cant shoot, Marion cant shoot 3s, i would like Delfino cause hes good at 3's and his D is pretty good. Daniels is a solid all around player but i would take delfino.

Daniels was huge last year while Dunleavy was out with an injury. He can score, rebound and play defense. He is a far superior player to Parker, Graham, Delfino and the former Raptor Jason Kapono. The guy was pulling down double doubles and making a lot of noise when given the chance last season. I hope Colangelo makes a big for him if it can work around his current plan.

In games where he played more than 30 minutes per game he averaged the following:

PPG: 16.73
FG%: 44.40
3Pt%: 16.03
FT%: 78.70
REB: 5.53
Ast: 2.44
TO: 2.12
Stl: 1.32
Blk: 0.62
PF: 2.44

Im not a big fan of Daniels unless youre paying him 4 mil to be your 6th man. He isnt a starter and he shouldnt get the MLE or over.

Always liked his game, but I wouldn't want him. A versatile slasher that can even play the point at times. He's brittle as a twig though. Every time he looks like he's on the verge of breaking out and living up to his potential he'd get an injury that would knock him out for a prolonged period of time.

His biggest problem is he cant shoot outside of 15 feet. And hes a shooting guard.

You put him on a team that doesnt run his lack of shooting gets exposed in halfcourt situations. And having him as a primary ballhandler just shows your team sucks.

Hes a good bench player, but starter he is not.

3-4 Million Dollars sounds just about right.

Daniels would be fine on this team.

This team wants to run-he excels in that style of play.

He is a very solid defender on the perimeter which we need.

YEah his shot from the outside is weak, but it isnt like Marion was making even 35% of thos jumpers from the outside he took.

As the team stands right now, Daniels would definately be a starter.




Because this team sucks............
