Pacers Links: Pacers waste little time in free agent frenzy, testing sleeved uniforms in Summer League

The Pacers made big moves on the first two days of NBA free agency period but still have work to do.

The NBA news never stops at this time of year with NBA free agency in full swing, so there are plenty of links and plenty more to come over the next few days.

The Pacers backed up their move to add C.J. Watson on the first day of free agency with a deal to lock up David West and then let Tyler Hansbrough hit the market on day two.

The Summer Pacers convene today at the Fieldhouse to begin practicing before heading down to Orlando for the Orlando Pro Summer League next week. The Pacers will test out some sleeved uniform options while in Orlando which David Benner tweeted about yesterday.

Apparently the Pacers are just giving the unis a go in Orlando and aren't expected to be one of the teams that will trot out the sleeves during the regular season. Although, if they like them for some reason, then that could certainly change. Roy Hibbert for one, would rather stick with the regular look as he tweeted (and then deleted) "keep away" in response to Benner's revelation.

As usual, feel free to add links or other reported rumors and deals in the comments as the dynamic free agency period continues to churn.
