08:02 AM ET 09.21 | The Pacers reportedly still want to sign their second-round pick, Magnum Rolle. In order to do that, though, they've got to find a way to clear a roster spot. The Pacers will have to do a two-for-one trade (or release a player) since they've already got 15 players under contract. That may not happen until training camp starts and teams get a better look at their roster. Point guard A.J. Price has a non-guaranteed contract, but the Pacers plan to keep him. ... The Pacers will likely look to move one of their wing players. It wouldn't be surprising if Dahntay Jones (or T.J. Ford) is the player they look to trade. Jones doesn't fit coach Jim O'Brien's playing style.

It's not his fault his parents wanted to be original when naming him.

Very true. Originality is often frowned upon when really it should be applauded. I mean how many Mary's, Tom's and Betty's are needed. Names like Arizona, Montana, and so on are more fun.

This is unbelievable. I don;t understand why Bird is being so obstinate. He needs to cut their loses and move on. No one, it seems, wants Ford.

I'm just glad that they're not going to wave A.J. Price. I thought for sure that they would wave him being that he had those 2 torn acl's and a brain hemorrhage.

Make It...no team want T.J. Ford at the cost of $8.5 million,...and ALL the teams know Bird want to move for to get rid of his contact...so no taker..

Indiana is still paying for the Jamaal Tinsley buyout, this year $5.46m on the CAP

Correct.The pacers wanted to buy Ford out but he refused and has said he will collect every single dollar from his 8.5 mil salary.Not that I can blame him.He did have a player option in which he exercised it.Now nobody will trade for Ford.

Not sure that this can be done but would it be possible to trade or "sell" him to a Euro-league team? If that fails, sell him to the Chinese for a bowl of noodles..
