Pacers expert J. Michael joins The Ride with JMV to discuss the Pacers new roster. J. Michael gives his thoughts on Bojan being traded to the Utah Jazz. J. Michael also talks to JMV about the Pacers roster after the opening of free agency and how he feels the Pacers fared picking up Malcolm Brogdon. 

"How did all of this transpire to get Brogdon yesterday?"

"From what I understand Brogdon was a high target on the list the whole time. This wasn't a case of they really weren't pursuing Brogdon. They had been pursuing Brogdon. He was obviously a restricted free agent with Milwaukee so you know there are a little bit more hoops you have to jump through then just signing a guy in free agency. six five guy that can play a couple of positions and who can give them a little bit more scoring which is what they needed."

"Did they move away from Bogdanovic when they found out that Brogdon might be available?"

"I think they knew all along that they would have to move away from Bogdanovic. I can tell you back in March someone connected to Bojan telling me, roughly, what it was going to take to probably keep him and that number didn't match what I thought the Pacers would be willing to pay for it to make a whole lot of sense. If he would've gotten paid anywhere in that range that I was being told then that financially wouldn't work. As he kept playing better and better and shooters like Bogdanovic, the value for these players is just ridiculous."
