Is Gerald Green Indiana’s Big Trade Chip?
The Indiana Pacers would like to add to their roster for a post-season run and it seems Gerald Green and Lance Stephenson may be the odd guys out.
There has been a lot of speculation that Indiana would look to move Danny Granger at the deadline and league sources still contend that a move involving Danny is possible, just not very likely at this stage in the game.
The Pacers have been sniffing around for smaller more cosmetic deals, and Green seems to be the main piece they are trying to sell. Unfortunately the reason Indiana is looking at Green related deals, is the same reason they may not have anything doable at the deadline; he just doesn’t have a lot of value.
Indiana would like to do something, so you can expect them to be linked to several things before the deadline, however moving Danny Granger may not be one of them. If the Pacers struggle in the post-season you can put moving Danny at the front of Draft/Offseason to-do list, it just doesn’t look like something they can do and return anything of value before Thursday.
