The Indiana Pacers are prepared to make an offer for free agent David West.
According to Yahoo!Sports, the Pacers are ready to make an offer on the New Orleans Hornets star if the Boston Celtics canâ€™t reach a deal with the Hornets. Boston, which is over the salary cap, is limited to the size of the offer while under sign-and-trade rules.
The Pacers, on the other hand, have the cap space to make an outright offer to the free-agent. Boston is aiming for a four-year contract, while Indiana is looking for a two-year deal. The team is also in talks to sign forward Carl Landy.
