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

Darnell Mayberry: The Thunder made a run at C.J. Miles, and there was mutual interest. The big difference was the length of the contract Miles got from Indy. Miles never visited OKC. Never know how it could have changed things. Once he sat down to dinner with Larry Bird, he was sold on the Pacers. Twitter @DarnellMayberry

The Pacers signed a one-year deal with a partial guarantee with undrafted rookie Shayne Whittington of Western Michigan on Wednesday, his agent, Ron Shade, told Yahoo Sports. Whittington is a 6-foot-11 forward with tremendous three-point shooting skills, something that caught the Pacers' attention at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in April. Whittington suffered a knee injury in workouts and isn't expected to be back on the floor until early 2015. Yahoo! Sports

Zach Lowe: Multiple sources say Rudez is getting $1.1M next year from Pacers. Puts total salary for now at ~ $69.3M, less than $8M below tax. Twitter @ZachLowe_NBA

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent CJ Miles has agreed to 4-year, $18M deal with Pacers, league source tells Yahoo. @Candace Buckner 1st reported an agreement. Twitter @WojYahooNBA

CJ Miles: Blessed and Excited to get to work #PacerNation #PhotoShopIsAmazing #StayStrapped http://instagram.com/p/p9du4otRjI/ Instagram



Three of the top four players are from the team's ABA era. All but the dead-eye shooter at No. 1.
