You know you can't force guys to sign with your team, right. If Player X doensn't want to go to Indiana we can't force him to sign. When there is a max amount you can pay the play can choose the team. And yeah I don't want to spend $34 million on a 29 year old undersized pg who's never played on a winner.

And what IF Kemba says, "Screw off KP I don't want to play in Indiana?"
Don't take me wrong on this Vorda, you are a great fan of the Pacers. It's great to have you on our side. But I don't know if you fully understand the way these American Players view American Cities. Have you been to Indiana? It's a great place to live for normal people. But Millionaire NBA players may very well say, "Indiana is boring, what is there to do in Indianapolis?" They want California and Miami or New York or at least Chicago.
Kemba can get a $32-34 million offer from 10 teams he gets to pick his next location. The Hornets can offer him a 5th year. If he comes here he makes $34 million and maybe $2 million more in endorsements. If he goes to the Lakers he makes $34 million and $10 million or more in endorsements. This is the dynamics of the American basketball market place. I don't know for sure where you're from but I don't think Europe is like the USA in this regard.
No hard feelings... in Europe money is the most important... players go everywhere... cold Moscow or hot Barcelona or Athen... I understand that there are atractive cities, but they cant all play in the biggest towns... I still think that some of them are looking quality of team... I would never go in New York if I am superstar... with Kyrie and Durant they still will not be contender... the same is Kemba in Lakers or Chicago... he has maybe 2-3 years of top level so he should look for a team to contend, otherwise he can stay in Charlotte... if endorsements are key, let it be... there are allways good role players to sign around Vic, but we have to try to sign Kemba, Middleton or Harris... we are so close to be contender... at least we have to try...
