    Official Site of the Pacers: Mark's Mailbag: Taking an Early Look at the Rotation

    Have a question for Mark? Want it to be on Pacers.com? Email him at askmontieth@gmail.com and you could be featured in his next mailbag.

    Editor's Note: Some Mailbag questions have been edited for clarity and length.

    Q. With the signing of Malcolm Brogdon on a four-year deal, does that move Holiday strictly to the backup point guard spot? I would like to see Holiday at the point and Brogdon at the two rather than Lamb. It would be a smaller lineup but I really think Holiday would flourish in a starting role for part of the season.

    Fansided: Pacers' Alize Johnson can't stop doing acts of service for his hometown

    The city of Williamsport, Pennsylvania is typically linked to a different sport. Here, Little League Baseball was born, and it's the site of the annual tournament you can catch on ESPN every summer. However, Indiana Pacers' sophomore forward Alize Johnson wants to make Williamsport a basketball town, along with simply making it a better place for kids to grow up in.

    Last month, the Alize Johnson Foundation Park opened up in Williamsport, featuring a multi-court basketball complex for the local neighborhoods to enjoy. The opening of the park was a huge event that Alize himself was a major part of, featuring food, games, and a basketball tournament for everyone to enjoy.

    Fansided: Pacers: What Malcolm Brogdon & Aaron Holiday can learn from each other

    The Indiana Pacers have had a major face-lift this off-season with 7 key free agents departing the team for various reason, and 6 new guys so far joining the squad, with shot blocking fiend Amida Brimah being the most recent addition in Naptown.

    Whenever a team undergoes major changes, there's going to be a period of adjustment for everyone. New players bring new play-styles and philosophies to the court. On paper, it seems like the Pacers added a bunch of great pieces, but chemistry will take time to build back up, and there will be a transitional period at first as everyone learns to share the court with one another.

    Fansided: Justin Holiday signs one-year, $4.8 million deal with Indiana Pacers

    It's official, folks. The Indiana Pacers now have two Holidays on their roster. As reported by The Athletic's Shams Charania, Justin Holiday has signed a one-year, $4.8 million deal to come to Indiana.

    Free agent Justin Holiday has agreed to a one-year, $4.8M deal with the Indiana Pacers, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

    While his career began as a journeyman, Holiday found his groove during his second stint with the Bulls in 2017. In his past season with the team (and subsequently the Grizzlies after a midseason trade), he averaged 10.

    Indy Cornrows: Justin Holiday is going to need Aaron Holiday, and vice versa

    Free agent Justin Holiday (yes, the brother of Aaron Holiday) has reached agreement with the Indiana Pacers on a one-year, $4.8 million deal (the full room exception), reports The Athletic's Shams Charania.

    Holiday, whose numbers dipped after being acquired by the Memphis Grizzlies in mid-season, will likely stand-in at back-up two until Victor Oladipo returns to action and then provide depth and compete for reserve wing minutes with Doug McDermott once Jeremy Lamb slides back to the bench.

    Fansided: Grading the Indiana Pacers' off-season moves so far

    Going into the summer, it was hard to predict what direction the Indiana Pacers would end up taking. With many key players entering free agency and a healthy amount of cap space to spend, the conditions were right for the team to get its most substantial overhaul in years.

    Essentially, that's what ended up happening. Every free agent that played a large role on the team in 2018-2019 departed (or retired/got banned from the league), and a slew of new faces were brought to Indy to try to restructure the team for sustained success moving forward.

    Fansided: Happy birthday Kevin Pritchard: his five best moves with the Pacers

    Ah, Kevin Pritchard. You know him, you love him, and after this Indiana Pacers offseason, you should recognize him as one of the best executives in the NBA. His front office wizardry has guided Indiana into a promising new era since the departure of Paul George, and he's done it all without the allure of a coastal destination, where nearly every top free agent signed this summer.

    Since it's his birthday, I won't skimp on his curriculum vitae -- he has an NCAA championship, a six-year NBA career and a pretty darn good tenure as GM of the Portland Trailblazers under his belt.

    Fansided: Indiana Pacers sign Amida Brimah to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal

    The Indiana Pacers aren't quite done yet in free agency. Birthday boy Kevin Pritchard made a move on Thursday, signing Amida Brimah to a one-year deal. Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes confirmed the news:

    Free agent seven-footer Amida Brimah has reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the Indiana Pacers, his agent Daniel Hazan of @hazansportsmgmt tells Yahoo Sports.

    Brimah, a Ghanaian talent, played two stints with the Austin Spurs in the NBA G-League, and spent some time on Partizan of the Serbian basketball league. More recently, he played on the Brooklyn Nets in the 2019 summer league.

    Fansided: How Jeremy Lamb became one of the NBA's best kept secrets, and why he's a steal for the Pacers

    The Indiana Pacers have been one of the busiest teams in the NBA this offseason. On draft night the Pacers made headlines by stealing efficient scoring wing T.J. Warren from the Phoenix Suns for almost nothing. Days later the Pacers made another huge addition when they traded for guard Malcolm Brogdon.

    Acquiring Brogdon wasn't all the Pacers did when free agency opened. In addition to acquiring Brogdon, the Pacers signed former Charlotte Hornets guard Jeremy Lamb to a three-year deal worth $31.5 million. In a market where Terry Rozier is getting nearly $20 million a year, this deal is a steal for Indiana.

    Indy Cornrows: Nate McMillan faces major questions heading into make-or-break season

    The Indiana Pacers, without a doubt, increased their talent this offseason.

    Malcolm Brogdon provides the most shooting and defense at point guard the Pacers have had in over a decade. T.J. Warren is a bucket-getter who can score at all three levels. Jeremy Lamb is as talented and stable of a bench piece as they come. Goga Bitadze is intriguing.

    Yet, Nate McMillan is left with more questions than answers.

    To go big or to go small?

    Kevin Pritchard confirmed in his press conference introducing Warren and Lamb that the starting lineup would be as follows:

    PG: Brogdon

    SG: Lamb

    SF: Warren

    The pairing of Turner and Sabonis has objectively not worked in the first two years of its existence.

    Couple more questions, do you think Goga will push for major rotation minutes?

    Fansided: Indiana Pacers have no players in top 20 of NBA 2K20 player ratings

    Indiana Pacers fans will have to wait a little bit longer to find out where their favorite players rank in the upcoming NBA 2K20 video game. During a livestream event last night, the top players and rookies each had their player ratings for the game revealed, but no one on the Pacers' roster was mentioned in either category.

    On the one hand, this isn't entirely shocking since all that was revealed was the Top 20 overall players in the league and the projected Top 5 rookies. The Indiana Pacers' consensus best player, Victor Oladipo, is injured and missed 46 games last season (plus the entire post-season).
