But Stephenson has also recently emerged as a target of the Mavericks. A month ago, or even a few weeks ago, Stephenson was not on Dallas' radar but over the past few days the Mavericks have registered their interest, according to sources. ESPN.com

After a flurry of rumors dating back a little more than a month, there has not been much to speak of when it comes to the possibility of Indiana moving center Roy Hibbert in a trade. But, according to multiple front-office sources, the Pacers have quietly sought out possible new landing spots for their enigmatic big man. “I would say they’ve been doing that, but quietly,” one front-office source said.

He added that Indiana’s preference would be to send Hibbert to the Western Conference. Portland originally gave Hibbert his max offer, and the Blazers have been intermittently linked to Hibbert. But the Blazers are focused on keeping star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge with a contract extension and making smaller tweaks to their bench. A source labeled a Portland deal, “unlikely.” Sporting News

The Indiana Pacers gave unrestricted free agent Lavoy Allen an early wedding gift by working out a new deal to bring him back to the roster. According to his agent, Allen, a 6-9, 255 pound reserve center, and the team agreed to a contract early Saturday morning. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, however the short-term contract should not affect the team's ability to re-sign the top priority, starter Lance Stephenson. The Pacers have already offered Stephenson a five-year, $44 million deal, which has not been accepted as of Saturday. Indianapolis Star

Lance Stephenson is no longer under contract with the Indiana Pacers, but he’s still using team facilities. The free agent posted an Instagram video Thursday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse working out with friend Sean Kilpatrick, a 6-4 shooting guard also out of the University of Cincinnati. Though Stephenson is getting shots up at the Pacers’ practice court, note that he isn’t wearing team gear — but rather AND-1 shorts. Vigilant Sports

Suns trading away Goran Dragic, possibly to the Pacers? Not so fast, says a source with knowledge of the talks. “No, no, no,” the source said. “Nothing to that. The team and Goran, they’re still committed to each other.” According to an ESPN report, the Pacers — looking to upgrade at point guard — have engaged the Suns in talks about a possible deal that would send Dragic to Indiana. Consider those talks to be decidedly one-sided. Sporting News

Marc Stein: Indiana Pacers, I'm told, have tried to engage Phoenix in trade talks for Goran Dragic, but teams have found no common deal ground. Yet something to keep an eye on, though, with Indy known to covet an upgrade at PG and stubborn perception Suns can't afford Bledsoe AND Dragic. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine
