Free agency is nearly here and the Indiana Pacers are looking to add some players to their surprising roster of last season.
Most of the rotation will appear to be the same, but options will be available for the team to upgrade at some spots.
In Part One, we analyzed in detail rumored targets of Tyreke Evans, Will Barton and Marcus Smart.
In Part Two, we’ll look at the veteran wings that are on the market this offseason that could add some immediate help in the short term while giving the Pacers flexibility to keep cap space in the next couple of years in some cases. Many of these players could probably be signed to deals similar to those of Bojan Bogdanovic and Darren Collison where the second season has a small partial guarantee.
Trevor Ariza is the prototypical 3-and-D wing. He’ll be in his 15th season next year at age 33 with a ton of playoff experience including winning a title with the Los Angeles Lakers nearly a decade ago.
