    Default ESPN: Pacers want to deal with the Lakers

    The Indiana Pacers have withheld from trading Jermaine O'Neal at least in part because they're still hopeful that the Los Angeles Lakers will change their stance and consent to surrendering Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum in a trade for O'Neal, according to NBA front-office sources.

    In the meantime, sources say Indiana has discussed another O'Neal deal in which the New Jersey Nets would send the Pacers a package featuring veteran swingman Richard Jefferson and young center Nenad Krstic.

    It's not yet clear whether the Pacers would proceed with New Jersey if the Lakers don't budge. Jefferson, for one, believes that his Nets bosses wouldn't make this deal, telling ESPN.com's Andy Katz: "They said they want to keep the team together."

    In the short term, sources say, Indiana remains focused on dealing with the Lakers, with the Pacers convinced that discussions can be revived even though L.A. has repeatedly indicated that it's unwilling to part with Odom and Bynum in the same deal.

    Minnesota's Kevin Garnett is the Lakers' dream trade target, but they privately acknowledge that the Phoenix Suns are the favorites to land Garnett -- this summer if not during Thursday's draft -- given Garnett's preference to wind up with the Suns.

    Yet L.A. maintains that pairing O'Neal with Kobe Bryant won't move them very far up the Western Conference ladder if it costs them Odom and Bynum in the same trade. It's also no lock that acquiring O'Neal would appease an increasingly distant Bryant, as the Lakers believed before Bryant's determined push to be traded over the past month.

    Hopefully something happens tonight.

    I would rather take Jefferson and Krstic then any LA deal that doesn't involve Odom and Bynum.

    Richard Jefferson and Nenad Krstic is not bad but Jason Collins at 6.1 and 6.2 mil is almost as distasteful as his game. Without both Bynum and Odom both in the same deal Nets would be the better package.

    Jason Collins is an excellent post defender. I would have no problem taking him on, I don't look at him as a negative. Especially with his contract expiring.

    Gosh I really just want this to be over with. If we don't trade Jermaine soon I don't think I can stand all of these trade rumors.

    If we take Collins we need to move Foster, I would rather not keep both.

    "Past their prime" might be a bit much, but I would think LA could do better.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I think we're likely to trade Jeff anyways.

    I was really underwhelmed by those head shots of the Laker girls. They're not what they're made out to be. Most were nothing special and a few were downright ugly.

    No deal. But throw in Vanessa Bryant, and we can resume talks.
