07:57 AM ET 06.23 | Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird isn't as interested in building through the draft with his No. 10 pick as he is in acquiring an "established" point guard who can help immediately. The Pacers have inquired about New Orleans' Darren Collison, San Antonio's George Hill, Denver's Ty Lawson and Minnesota's Jonny Flynn. ... A sticking point in some of the discussions is the Pacers' reluctance to trade Brandon Rush and Josh McRoberts. Bird doesn't want to give up on the inconsistent Rush. They also don't want to take on long-term contracts of players who don't fit into their future plans.
