If there needs to be any doubt about it, the Pacers once again showed they are serious about competing in the Eastern Conference by completing a pretty intriguing and solid trade to acquire veteran center Luis Scola from the Suns.
The Pacers acquired Scola for Gerald Green, Mason Plumlee and a future first round pick. For most this appears to be a clear sign the Pacers are in it to win the Eastern Conference and win the NBA title in 2014. Who could blame them after taking the Heat to the seventh and final game of the Eastern Conference?
To the Pacers fans, thank you guys for welcome me, I really wish I can help the team get farder. I won't stop working until I do. #Pacers

Indiana has spent its summer locking David West back up to a medium-sized three-year deal, that probably does not cover what he is truly worth to the team. The Pacers also added shooting in Chris Copeland and another year of fine seasoning.
