HoopsHype Luis Scola rumors

July 27, 2013 Updates

"Luis will be a very important asset to our team and to our bench,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “He has NBA experience, international experience and is the type of player that will fit in nicely on our roster. I want to thank Gerald and Miles for their contributions. They had tough years last season, but worked hard, never complained and contributed to the great chemistry our team had. I think Gerald and Miles will be solid additions in Phoenix and we wish them well." NBA.com

Juan Sebastia, who runs Scola's website, tweeted Friday night that a trade to send the Argentinian big man to the Pacers would be officially announced Saturday. Neither team commented in the immediate aftermath of the tweet, but sources with knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com that one trade scenario on the table would send swingman Gerald Green and future draft considerations to Phoenix in exchange for Scola, whose arrival in Indiana would only strengthen a front line headlined by center Roy Hibbert and the recently re-signed David West.

The Indiana Pacers are nearing completion of a deal to acquire Phoenix Suns forward Luis Scola, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Pacers and Suns were finalizing the players and possible picks involved in the deal on Friday night, and front-office sources expected an agreement to be finalized overnight. Indiana has been pursuing Scola for several weeks, and had become available to teams because of the Suns' movement toward a rebuild under new general manager Ryan McDonough. Yahoo! Sports
