Pacers Rumour: Pacers Talking Trade with Celtics Including Ford?

A couple reputable Celtics blogs are reporting that Ford might be headed to Boston in a deal. So, if that is in fact true, it would appear as though the Pacers would match the Raptors offer to Jack and make Jarret their man at point in Indy.

I personally don't see the deal happening because I can't see Ainge wanting to pay Ford $8+ million to back up Rondo unless they are looking to move him which I think would be ridiculous.

That being said, I wonder if Colangelo has a back-up plan in place incase the JJ deal falls through.

It would be a major blow to the Raptors if Indiana matched are offer to Jack.
After Orlando retained Gortat anything is possible.

unless it's ford for rondo, since boston tried hard to ship rondo out of town this summer.

ford is like poor's man rondo, but who has better character as long sa he's starting.

Because otherwise it makes no sense for boston to have both ford and rondo

ok, nothing beats seeing Davis wail like a baby on the end of the bench, but seeing KJ give TJ a verbal thrashing would make my day!

it would kind of make sense if TJ is in his last year of his contract...maybe they're trying to replace marbury with him/??? or possibly as insurance if rondo doesn't sign a long term deal?

although that is a hefty price for a back up....

why do they even need TJ? house is good at what he does. Paul sometimes plays like a point forward for them and even rayray can play the point in spot minutes . If anything they need danielss to back up pierce. T Alen just doesnt cut it

Yeah, and what Eddie House does good is shoot wide open shots. They have no nice PG option off the bench. They tried Steph out last year but that didn't work out too well.

It only makes sense if it is for Rondo.

Why? Why can't it make sense if its for expiring contracts like Scalabrine, House and Tony Allen, plus picks? The Pacers need to cut costs and maybe they're trying now to pick Jack over Ford before the Tuesday deadline...I hope that's not the case.

Because they can afford it and also because they're trying to win a championship now and their window happens to be around the same amount of time left on TJ's contract; two seasons.

I don't think it makes sense for Boston otherwise. For Indy it makes plenty of sense.

But Boston could have plans to move Rondo elsewhere I suppose.
