09:03 AM ET 07.27 | The Phoenix Suns' Luis Scola is headed to the Indiana Pacers in a trade, according to his publicist in Argentina. uan Sebastia, who runs Scola's website, tweeted Friday night that a trade to send the Argentinian big man to the Pacers would be officially announced Saturday. Neither team commented in the immediate aftermath of the tweet. But sources with knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com that one trade scenario on the table would send swingman Gerald Green and future draft considerations to Phoenix in exchange for Scola, whose arrival in Indiana would only strengthen a front line headlined by center Roy Hibbert and the recently re-signed David West.

Great move, Scola can still defend and knock down 14-15 footers.
But Green could spread the floor a bit, I think they are still short on a shooter.

This was a good deal for Indiana.

Good trade for both. Suns want to give their young frontline some PT.

I actually like this trade for the Suns also. They get to go with a youth movement and got a 1st rounder. Indy still wins it though.

No. He does help their front line but they need some more help at the wing positions. Can Granger come back or can the Pacers get some value for him? I think that is the key.

Nah! Their main problem was their own doing. Taking care of the ball. They need a true PG who can take care of the ball and be able to attack the rim. They should try to trade for Teague from Atlanta.

Not sure but it'll get Miami pondering the same thing...

Not quite; the Pacers are going to have to come up with a point guard. And C.J. Watson ain't gonna do it.

Yup; They need a true PG, and I'm surprised they made no moves towards getting one.

Andre Miller is a mal-content in Denver and they are going no where. he can be a perfect fit for Indy.
ATL just signed Teague for 4-years, he is not available any more.

Trade Hill to Denver for Miller. Not sure if the contracts work, but the Nuggets could add a bit player.

Miller gives them a legit pass first PG. Granger and Scola become the main guys off the bench. Watson backs up Miller and they limit Andre's minutes to 28-30 per game.

I don't think you can ever have enough front court help. I don't know that it puts them over the Game 7 hump but it keeps them in the dialogue.


Getting Granger back wouldn't hurt...
