Found July 12, 2012 on Pacers Pulse:
This smelly offseason just took another turn for the Indiana Pacers and I am not sure what to make of it yet.First of all, Roy Hibbert is remaining a Pacer. That takes care of the biggest question mark this offseason for the Pacers. The Pacers decided to match (as I thought they would all along) and Portland dropped out completely. Roy will be Indiana's franchise center for the next four years.On the other hand, a potential Roy replacement/back up, serial killer lookalike Chris Kaman, has signed with the Dallas Mavericks. Kaman apparently loves the Texas gun laws. Look out everyone!The sad news is that former starting point guard Darren Collison has been traded to the Mavs, along with defensive specialist Dahntay Jones, for center Ian Mahinmi. I say sad news for now because I'm a big fan of the speedy Collison, who never lived up to expectations in Indy and even lost his starting job to George Hill towards the end of last season. The Pacers are apparently also after PG DJ Au...

Pacers plan to match Hibbert offer sheet

Last week, the Portland Trailblazers caught everyone off guard when they made Pacers restricted free agent Roy Hibbert a max contract offer sheet.  For several days, the Pacers let everyone around the league wonder if they were going to match that offer sheet.  That suspense ended Monday when word came out of Indianapolis that the Pacers will offer Hibbert a contract similar to...

Mavericks acquire Collison, Jones from Pacers

DALLAS The Dallas Mavericks, establishing that 'Plan Keep Your Powder Dry' needn't be synonymous with 'inactivity,' followed up Wednesday's acquisition of Hornets center Chris Kaman with a trade with Indiana that brings to Dallas a starting point guard in Darren Collison and a rotation piece in Dahntay Jones. Following closely in the wake of the announcement...

Pacers re-sign Hibbert, Hill

The Indiana Pacers have re-signed free agents Roy Hibbert and George Hill, two key members of their rebuilding project. Hibbert, a fourth-year pro, is coming off an All-Star season, averaging 12.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game and giving the Pacers a dominant presence at center. He says he's happy to be back because the Pacers have ''unfinished business...

Pacers send Collison, Jones to Mavs

The Indiana Pacers are sending guards Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones to the Dallas Mavericks for center Ian Mahinmi. Jones' agent, Mark Bartelstein, confirmed the trade Thursday. Both teams declined comment. Collison lost his starting job to George Hill late last season after starting 135 games for the Pacers in two seasons. He averaged 13.2 points and 5.1 assists two years...

Pacers trade Darren Collison to Mavs for Ian Mahinmi

The Indiana Pacers traded guard Darren Collison and swingman Dahntay Jones to the Dallas Mavericks late Wednesday for center Ian Mahinmi via sign-and-trade, according to multiple reports. Mahinmi will sign a four-year, $16 million contract to complete deal. Collison was acquired by the Pacers in 2010 to be the team’s point guard of the future [...]

Pacers trade Collison, Jones to Mavs

The Indiana Pacers are sending point guard Darren Collison and wing player Dahntay Jones to the Dallas Mavericks for center Ian Mahinmi, according to the agent for one of the players. Mark Bartelstein, who represents Jones, confirmed Thursday that the deal is in place. ''That's going to happen,'' Bartelstein said. The Mavericks are adding 7-foot center Chris...

Mavericks land Chris Kaman and Darren Collison, not bad recovery

Free agency wasn't going initially well for Dallas. Deron Williams didn't work out, nor did Jeremy Lin, Steve Nash, or any other Point Guard they tried to acquire. They didn't appear to have enough ammo for a real shot at Dwight Howard, and then Jason Kidd left along with Jason Terry. But I do have to say the Mavs recovered nicely yesterday. Vey nicely I think. First...

Mavericks Try To Get Out Of Gutter With Kaman, Collison And Jones

One of the most important things in the world to Your Old Pal New York Vinnie is loyalty; it is the code of the streets in the “Greatest City To Ever Exist On The Planet, New York City,” that you take care of Your BOYS. You watch my back and New York Vinnie will watch yours; when one of New York Vinnie’s BOYS have success, I throw the best “FRICKIN SHINDIG” they have...

Flurry of activity produces net gain for Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS -- Taken separately, the Indiana Pacers' recent moves have left open the door for criticism. Viewed as a whole, however, the net result has been a gain in size, depth and talent for the roster. After retaining restricted free agent starters Roy Hibbert (four years, 58 million) and George Hill (five years, 40 million), team President Donnie Walsh and General Manager...

Pacers Acquire Mahinmi In Deal With Mavericks For Collison, Jones

The Pacers have acquired Ian Mahinmi in a sign-and-trade agreement from Dallas in exchange for Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones.

Relax Portland Trail Blazers Fans, This Isn’t A Failure

This just in:  Roy Hibbert isn’t coming to Portland.  This also just in:  The sky isn’t falling. As I write this, it’s apparent that the coveted free agent (restricted as he may be) center the Portland Trail Blazers targeted will not be a Blazer.  The restricted free agent (Nicolas Batum) they currently hold the rights to allegedly wants out.  And former team president...
