NBA rumors: Seraphin, Zeisloft join Pacers

More on Kevin Seraphin Free Agency

In an interview with HoopsHype, Seraphin said joining Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona was his priority for several weeks in the offseason. “Barcelona was my first option,” the French center told HoopsHype. “I talked to the GM. He called me. After that, I talked to the coach and they were my first option. But they made us wait. They were like, ‘We have to make room’. Then they told us they could not do it because they couldn’t make room. That’s when my new agent (Bouna Ndiaye) started calling teams in the NBA and seeing if we could get a deal. That’s why it took so long, because we were exploring that option first. I was looking forward to an opportunity to play a lot and show people what I can do. Since it didn’t happen with Barcelona, we looked at opportunities in the NBA… And then Barcelona came back! But it was too late then because we were in the process of talking to NBA teams, then I tried out with Indiana for a couple of days and now I’m with the Pacers.”
Shams Charania: Free agent Kevin Seraphin has agreed on a two-year deal with the Indiana Pacers, with first season guaranteed, sources tell The Vertical.
Ian Begley: The Knicks have their backup point guard in Brandon Jennings. Jennings' deal is one year and approximately $5 million, league sources confirm to ESPN. CSN Chicago first reported the terms. The Knicks will likely have to renounce their rights to free agents Derrick Williams, Lou Amundson, Sasha Vujacic and Kevin Seraphin to fit Jennings' deal into cap space. The club should still be able to sign restricted free agent Langston Galloway and free agent Lance Thomas by going over the cap to do so via the Early Bird exception.

No particular name was mentioned, but it’s hard not to assume Washington Wizards star shooting guard Bradley Beal is the aforementioned player. Beal would be a logical addition to the Warrior, and would be someone who could help get them back on top of the Western Conference, if not the NBA. But Beal has denied wanting a trade out of Washington.
