Phoenix and Indiana are engaged in serious talks about a trade that would send Luis Scola to the Pacers, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Suns are nearing a deal to send Luis Scola to the Pacers, league sources tell Y! Sports.

 

Indiana has been pursuing Scola for several weeks, and close to landing him, sources tell Y! Sports.

Amazing, getting Scola on top of already re-signing West, getting Copeland, and Watson. I really do wonder who is part of deal.

Is Gerald Green still with Indiana? If so, then he's probably going along with some other guys/2nd round picks.

Good trade for Indiana. Getting Scola, Copeland, Watson, resigning West, and hopefully keeping Granger? Well done, Bird.

Scola is very similar to David West to me in a lot of ways.

Agree, while West is more offenisvely sound and can carry a team for stretches, Scola is better defensively and I want to say a more impactful rebounder...if that makes any sense.

 

Both solid PF's, gritty and bruisers when need to be.

Atta way Pacers. They don't wanna see a Heat three-peat.

West is a better everything than Scola.

 

But that's okay, Indy is going to beat the Heat this season and it may be in the 2nd round.

 

 

Fatigue is about to kick in for a team in a PARTY city  and guys on their last legs.

Haslem,Wade(to a certain extent),Battier, and your young guys are who they are. Chalmers may get better , but he want be able to blossom on this team as constructed. And so forth. Meanwhile, The Bulls and Pacers got more umph. Atlanta is a bad matchup for them in my opinion with the addition of Millsap, who want play small. Lebron is really going to have to defend PFs, and I 'm not sure he wants to do that for 82 games. plus complacency is natural.

 

 

So, all that being said, I think Indy is GREAT but they can be beat, so if we can sneak out of the West, we can shock the world.

 

What would be bad is if Rose and Butler being the best backcourt in the league next season, or at lest in that conversation, with Deng and what I feel like is a "coached-up" Boozer and a guy who I will say is a winner, Noah, That's a scary proposition. I don't know about their depth as of now but, I like that 5.

Wow they traded Green?

^ Real Deal is that you?

It's the same guy that said we'll win the championship if we land Nick Young.
