Adrian Wojnarowski: Oklahoma City is engaged with Utah and Indiana in trade scenarios, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Pacers have long coveted Jackson too. Twitter @WojYahooNBA

Scott Agness: Reggie Jackson makes a lot of sense for the #Pacers. He's friends w/ PG, have the same agent. Were together at ASB instagram.com/p/zN2WNzEfIi/ Twitter @ScottAgness

The All-Star break is generally a time for players to get a brief respite from the grueling grind of the NBA season. Most players take the opportunity to enjoy a few days free from any serious commitment. Pacers swingman C.J. Miles, however, used the break to make the biggest commitment of all. Miles proposed to his girlfriend, Lauren Smith, while the two were on vacation in Cancun. Last night, following the Pacers' first practice after the break, a beaming Miles spoke in great detail with the media about his proposal and the weeks of preparation that went into it. NBA.com

Sources say the club's desperation is illustrated by its willingness to move Lawson, its leader in scoring (16.9 points per game), assists (10.1) and steals (1.3). Despite Lawson's production, he and Shaw have had trouble getting on the same page, and sources say Shaw would prefer to trade him for Hill because Hill can play at both a fast and slow tempo and is a strong defender. While an assistant coach in Indiana from 2011 to '13, Shaw mentored Hill and grew close to him. "Brian loves George," said a league executive who is close to Shaw. ESPN.com

It is not clear whether Indiana is willing to part with Hill in a trade that would feature Lawson, but the Pacers' front office, led by Larry Bird, was high on Lawson when he entered the 2009 draft out of North Carolina. The Pacers considered taking Lawson with the 13th pick but instead chose his college teammate Tyler Hansbrough. ESPN.com

Alex Kennedy: Rival executives say that Indiana is open to trading Roy Hibbert. Nothing is imminent, but the Pacers would move him for the right offer. One problem for Indiana when it comes to moving Roy Hibbert is that he can opt out after this season and become an unrestricted free agent. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA
