    Default Bird post draft press conference up on Pacers.com.

    http://www.nba.com/pacers/

    Could have made some trades for players they thought would be backups. Thought the price was to much.

    Danny; As for trading Danny that was just a rumor. Had nothing to do with that. Danny's one of the best players in the NBA and to get him it would take a lot to get him. Speaking of New Jersey he said they have a nice team but they don't have enough on that team to get Danny.

    Lance; Really surprised he made it though the first round so when he got to 40 we took him.

    Hayward; They were interested in Hayward, but didn't indicate they would have taken him at ten.

    Interesting how quickly he cut off the question and said that it was just a rumor...then moved on.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    "They don't have enough on that team to get Danny Granger"

    I wonder if Danny got upset that his name was in rumors.

    I think Larry showed it's stupid to do soo... to me it sounds like that rumor may have been another smokescreen by Thorn... sounds like they didn't even discuss such a deal.

    Why would Bird come out and say he tried to trade Danny? I don't know whether the rumor was true or not. The trade did not happen, so you say that to make sure there is peace in the Granger camp regardless of whether he was almost traded.

    I wouldn't read anything into Bird's statements.

    Well I'm just saying with the buttload of smokescreens Thorn was throwing out there the last couple days... I don't really read anything into any rumor with NJ either, they could be making up stuff to try to make their pieces look better...
