HoopsHype Solomon Jones rumors
A rumor recently surfaced that the Indiana Pacers were closing in on a trade with the Phoenix Suns that would land Earl Clark in Indiana and send Solomon Jones to Phoenix. Sources close to the situation tell HOOPSWORLD that not only are the Pacers not interested in acquiring the troubled Clark, they also have little interest in moving Jones. HoopsWorld
League sources revealed yesterday that the Indiana Pacers and the Phoenix Suns have held informal talks about swapping seldom used Suns' forward Earl Clark and equally unused Pacer's center Solomon Jones. The deal would basically shed $200,000 off of Phoenix's payroll and give them another body for the center position, and add some rebounding to the bench. HoopsWorld
There's a possibility that the Pacers could eat Solomon Jones' $1.5 million contract and release him. Cutting Jones, however, will leave the Pacers with even less experience in the frontcourt. Indianapolis Star
The Pacers have had no success trying to package Dahntay Jones and Solomon Jones in a two-for-one trade. "It's out of my control," Solomon Jones said. "The only thing I can control is how I play when I get on the court. I need to help contribute to the team any way I can. All the other off-the-court issues and rumors are out of my control."
