PACERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar training Roy Hibbert

Roy Hibbert with a skyhook? Pacers president and former Celtic Larry Bird apparently dined with his old Lakers rival, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, in the name of helping Indiana’s center. If Abdul-Jabbar helps diversifies Hibbert’s offense, that would be wonderful for the wayward Pacers big man. However, I believe most of these arrangements are overrated. If Abdul-Jabbar could unilaterally...

Evan Turner set to sign with the Celtics

This isn't a bad signing. Evans is a former No. 2 pick from the 2010 draft. But the 25-year-old Turner hasn't had the career as one. I think this is a low risk move that could result in a high reward. The deal will be half of the mid-level exception, which makes this a sound signing. Turner has averaged 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists over four NBA seasons. This...
