- Larry Bird on Kravitz & Eddie (audio) with Mark Boyle in for Kravitz. Bird mentions that Danny Granger, Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert are the only untouchable Pacers in trade talks. He also minimizes the importance of the workouts and reiterates that he has four players on his radar and he expects at least three of them to be available. He also gives Bill Laimbeer credit as a coach that should get an opportunity in the NBA, although he admits he still doesn't like him. Classic.

Washington now has a glut of shooting guards while Minny has a glut of first round picks (four!). Appears to be just the beginning for those two teams. Maybe Minny GM, David Kahn will remember his friends in Indy if he starts dealing one of his picks.
