Yesterday's Game 4 defeat sent the Pacers into perhaps their most interesting and critical offseason in years.
Four starters and six regulars overall - Bojan Bogdanovic, Thaddeus Young, Darren Collison, Wesley Matthews, Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans - are free agents. Their star, Victor Oladipo, is still recovering from a season-ending injury in late January, and the jury is still out on youngsters like Aaron Holiday and TJ Leaf.
Bogey briefly spoke about his upcoming decision yesterday:
Who would you like to see back? I left it up to fans on Twitter with these polls:
As long as the price isn't too crazy, I'm most in favor of bringing Bogdanovic back. I believe the Pacers really need his offense, and assuming Oladipo is healthy, he can go back to being in the ancillary scoring role he's more comfortable in. I also believe they'll retain one of the point guards (Collison or Joseph, but not both) to bring along Aaron Holiday as the starter-in-waiting, Young is a good player and a terrific glue guy, but not worth overpaying for. I'm not sure Matthews and Evans are interested in returning, regardless of how aggressive the Pacers are in trying to keep them.
