With today's NBA trade deadline closing in though, the Fieldhouse appears quiet as the market for key expiring contracts appears to be drying up and an injury to Mike Dunleavy may be altering the immediate needs for the team. No doubt every team in the league knows what the Pacers have to offer in expiring contracts so whether any teams get desperate enough to make a late enticing deal for the Pacers is anybody's guess. Just don't expect the Pacers to act in desperation.
