Indiana Pacers

  1. Grizzlies trade Mayo to Pacers for McRoberts, Rush

    Dec 12, 2011, 12:19 PM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    UPDATE 12:19 pm: This trade has become official, according to Hoopsworld. O.J.Mayo heads to the Indiana Pacers for Josh McRoberts. Really like this move for the Pacers, who have a nice, well-rounded team right now. Not going to compete with Miami/Chicago, but this is a much better team than people think. On the flip side,…

  2. Boston misses mark, David West to sign with Pacers

    Dec 11, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    David West to the Boston Celtics made some sense — not a perfect fit but the best player on the free agent market the Celtics could seem to get. Rajon Rondo was going to love having one of the best pick-and-pop bigs in the game to work with. Instead, Darren Collison is going to love…

  3. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  4. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  5. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  6. Danny Granger and Jason Richardson tweet out their frustration over the league-halted Chris Paul trade

    Dec 9, 2011, 2:49 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Over the last few years, Twitter has completely changed the NBA experience. It gives basketball fans a place to congregate online in order to discuss breaking news or thrilling games. It gives reporters a mechanism to get their scoops to readers as quickly as possible, without having to worry about wasting precious moments for the…

  7. Thursday morning one liners

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The Celtics may have been closer to getting Chris Paul than you think. Eddy Curry is about to sign a deal with the Heat. So, you can just start sizing them all for championship…

  8. Wednesday morning one liners (now with extra rumors)

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  9. Frank Vogel, the Indiana Pacers, and the “next step”

    Dec 5, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    The Indiana Pacers snuck into the NBA Playoffs last season thanks to weak competition among the middling teams of the Eastern Conference, but the playoff appearance itself — and the dogfight Indiana was able to give the Chicago Bulls in the first round — still meant plenty to the Pacers’ young, developing core. Then-interim head…

  10. Monday morning one liners: How CP3, Dwight Howard can team up

    Dec 5, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT. What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting. The Nets are going very hard after Nene. New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority. The Lakers might consider Delonte West…

  11. Spurs are aggressively shopping for a small forward, Jefferson on the way out?

    Dec 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    The Spurs will likely look a bit different this year than they did last season. Tim Duncan‘s a year older. Manu Ginobili is a year older. DeJuan Blair‘s knees are a year older. They traded George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. Tiago Splitter will get more minutes. And from the looks of it, they’ll have another…

  12. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  13. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  14. David West drawing interest from Pacers, Warriors, more

    Nov 30, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    David_west

    David West (kind of like Caron Butler) is an interesting free agent case — he’s 31 and coming off major knee surgery. Combined those are a pretty massive red flag. But he has been a good, borderline All-Star (he made it in 2008 and 2009) forward who is one of the best pick-and-pop bigs in…

  15. Report: Paul Millsap is on the trading block. Any bidders?

    Nov 28, 2011, 8:02 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    We welcome with open arms our first real trade rumor of the post-lockout era. We’ve missed you guys. Jazz forward Paul Millsap is available, according to a story in the Indy Star and backed up by John Hollinger of ESPN. This is not a huge shock, the Jazz were reportedly shopping Millsap around during the…

  16. Are the Knicks considering Kwame Brown? Apparently.

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Free agent priority No. 1 for the Knicks — maintain projected cap space for next summer so they can try to bring in one more star player (cough* Chris Paul *cough). Priority No. 2: find a big defensive minded center, but one will take a one-year deal as not to screw up priority No. 1.…

  17. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  18. Friday one liners: Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd charity game

    Nov 25, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    kidd-nash

    Like the leftovers you are trying to fashion into meal, here are few things scattered around today we are fashioning into a post. • Up at UC Berkley (what you call Cal) there is a charity game scheduled now for Dec. 10 billed as “Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd” (via the twitter of Yahoo’s Marc…

  19. Owners will have a hard time waiting out Jeff Foster

    Nov 18, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    Jeff Foster

    The perception is that every NBA player is living life like Vinny Chase in Entourage. Women, drugs, parties, hangers on and money flowing out in a river. It happens. But not to everyone. Businessweek has a story with Jeff Foster, the Pacers center you usually think of as the other guy in the poster but…

  20. Video: Danny Granger says the lockout has damaged the game

    Nov 17, 2011, 11:25 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger was honest in an interview with Russ Thaler on NBC SportsTalk (a daily show on Versus you should be watching anyway because you never know when I will pop up on there). He says that Stern deserves a lot of the blame for the lockout — as commissioner he needs…

  21. Report: Indiana charity game canceled due to ‘uncertainty’ around labor deal. Don’t hold your breath.

    Nov 5, 2011, 11:24 PM EDT

    billy-hunter-david-stern

    File this under: Salted by granule. From the AP: A charity game involving NBA players scheduled for Sunday in New Castle, Ind., has been canceled. A release from event organizers says that because of the “uncertainty” of Saturdays NBA negotiations in New York many of the players scheduled to participate were advised to prepare for…

  22. Jamaal Tinsley to use D-League as a comeback vehicle

    Nov 1, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    Jamaal Tinsley

    In its current form, the D-League is a sensible option for any player on the cusp — or targeting the cusp — of making an NBA roster. As Antonio Daniels and Antoine Walker showed last year, that group doesn’t entirely consist of undrafted rookies or former college standouts bouncing back after a few years in…

  23. The enduring value of the Pacers’ undeserved playoff berth

    Oct 21, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    72728979_crop_650x440

    As third parties have banded about all kinds of system-related ideas in light of the lockout, I’ve seen the 2010-2011 Indiana Pacers, who finished the regular season with a 37-45 record, categorically used as evidence in support of an altered playoff system. As much as I understand the sentiment that teams so far under .500…

  24. Pacers Danny Granger to take arena workers out to dinner

    Oct 17, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Workers in NBA areas have become the latest pawn in the labor dispute that will have the NBA closing the doors to those arenas for at least the first couple weeks of the season. Both sides have started pointing to those arenas workers — many of whom make minimum wage or just a little more…

  25. What the Pacers should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 14, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Indiana Pacers. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads.   Last season: What a start! Oh, things fell apart. Oh, but…
