Trade deadline looming
Barring a last-minute surprise, the Pacers won't make a trade before Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline.
"I don't anticipate us doing anything," Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh said. "Through the stuff with Ronnie (Artest), we talked to a lot of people so there could be something that comes up late, but I'm not looking at it that way."
Walsh dismissed media reports that Toronto rejected a deal to trade Chris Bosh for Jermaine O'Neal, saying no such deal was discussed.
"There's absolutely no truth in that. It's way off," Walsh said. "We've had no conversations with Toronto."
Walsh said he likes the way the team is playing and is interested in seeing how they come together when Croshere, O'Neal (groin) and Jamaal Tinsley (elbow) return from injuries.
"Peja (Stojakovic) is a great addition to our team and it gives us an opportunity when we get our injured players back to look and see where we are," Walsh said. "From what I see, I think we can be a pretty good team going down to the end of this year and then we'll look at it and see what we have to do."
