Indiana Pacers Rumors
Not sure there is much the Pacers have to offer without ripping up the core, which I do not see them doing. I know they’d be open to moving Monta Ellis, but I am not sure what he returns. Maybe Orlando? I think they need a flat out scorer and there is some history with Vogel, but at this point, nothing is there.
Dwight Howard might have been at the end of his rope when a Lakers fan called him a “bitch” Sunday night — because just last week, another heckler told him his mother is a “whore.” It all went down on Nov. 23rd after Dwight’s ATL Hawks beat the Pacers in Indiana — when a fan leaned over the tunnel to the locker room and said, “Good game, Dwight. Have a nice evening. Your mother’s a whore!”
Marc Stein on a potential Paul George trade: I can’t say that I’ve heard that the Pacers would entertain anything, but if other teams are asking the question I think you can safely assume they are calling the Pacers.
Marc Stein: Larry Bird has been very open about “We’d like to sign Paul George to an extension” and without outright saying it there is nothing going on there. Paul George has kind of made it clear that he’s really not interested in an extension.
A day after leading the Pacers with a career-high 20 points, Robinson smiled Saturday as he explained his experiences the past week after being thrust into the starting lineup. “It’s crazy, man, and I’m loving it,” he said. “I’m having fun. I think that’s the biggest thing. You come out here in practice every day, but if you’re not playing in the game, it’s just different, man. I went out with the mentality of I’m grateful for this opportunity.” Against the Nets, Robinson swished four 3-pointers, matching his career high. He also played 40 minutes, which has become the norm with George out.
