The Indiana Pacers must love the attention of NBA rumors. They have been all over the news as they have traded away Darren Collison and attempted to make a push for DJ Augustin. The latest one involves them looking at Gerald Green to fill out their bench.
Green was a great story last season as he was able to play his way back into the big time. He had a great season with the soon to be named Brooklyn Nets and has attracted a lot of interest on the market. It seems the Pacers are the most aggressive team in pursuing him. He does make a lot of sense in the long run.
The Pacers need a guy who can come in off the bench and play good defense and shoot the three. Green can do all of that and more. It took him awhile, but he has finally started to put all of his talent to good use. I think coming right out of high school was bad for him, but he he is finally figuring things out now.
The Pacers have had a pretty good offseason as they have been able to make their bench a lot stronger. Remember, their backups were the downfall last season and ended their season before they were done accomplishing their goals. All of the moves that they have made over the last couple of days are going to make the team even more of a threat.
