It was reported last night, specifically as new information, among the many offers that Walsh had received a handful had involved all-star caliber players in return. (That would imply bigger contracts so the Pacers would have to give up.)

Twenty teams had inquired about dealing with the Pacers, although not all came with offers. Twelve offers had been made so far, and Donnie, though not bound by a self-imposed timetable, does want to get it done for the purpose of closure. He wants to narrow the list down to three offers in quick order and respond to them.
