The Indiana Pacers began introducing new players Tuesday.

Team president Larry Bird said he isn't finished remaking the roster, however.


Bird said he hopes to trade for or sign a power forward and is confident he can trade point guard Jamaal Tinsley.

"As we made deals, we knew we were probably going to have an area that we needed to still address, and right now it's a power forward that can score down low," Bird said after Roy Hibbert and Brandon Rush -- two of the seven players the team acquired through trade -- were introduced. "Hopefully we're not done this summer."

The Pacers have 16 players under contract -- one over the maximum allowed during the season. Team officials said they can fill the hole at power forward through a trade because the Pacers have expiring contracts and a $2.7 million trade exception to offer teams. The Pacers also have their mid-level exception, which is about $5.9 million, to spend on a free agent. Bird said he will probably use only part of the exception if the Pacers use it at all.

"There's different ways we can take care of our needs," general manager David Morway said. "I think at this point, we're looking at the trade market at the moment."

The Pacers tried to solve both issues in one deal by offering Tinsley to Miami for power forward Udonis Haslem, but the Heat are reluctant to give up Haslem.

"We're talking to some teams, but it depends on if they are going to make the decision or not," Bird said. "We'll see where it goes."

Pacers officials said they expect to be able to trade Tinsley because 10 or 12 teams need a point guard. How soon that happens might depend on whether the Memphis Grizzlies trade one of their three young point guards -- Mike Conley Jr., Kyle Lowry or Javaris Crittenton.

Teams looking for a point guard might prefer to acquire one of the young Grizzlies.

Bird said Tinsley has lost weight and has passed physical tests by team trainers.

"It was obvious after the trades they made that they are trying to reshape the team, and we understand that," Tinsley's agent, Raymond Brothers, said. "We have a lot of respect for Larry Bird and David Morway because they have treated (Tinsley) well. David continues to check on him on a weekly basis."

Obviously to us, Haslem is worth more. But if Miami keeps their current lineup, Haslem won't be starting. But Tinsley would.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. It appears Miami is hoping to get one of the Memphis PGs, but could opt for Tinsley if nothing works out there. If we miss out on Haslem, Carl Landry's signing becomes a little more likely I think.

yeah i think landry is more likely. miami actually has 4 PGs right now (banks, chalmers, quinn and richardson) so i don't see them going for tinsley, especially if they're giving up a solid double-double guy

:lol:

we dont want tinsley cos he's smush 2.0
and we can get him anyways after he's waived.

haslem is a young valuable rare asset for miami, he's easily a 10-10 guy and team captain, one of the most underrated players.

glad we declined lol terrible for miami

btw he will still start at center, going small.

Why did Bird keep saying that he want tinsley out or the team will buyout his contract once they can't trade him before the start of the season. It degrade Tinsley's market value. Instead telling to everyone how bad tinsley is, why just he say how tinsley can still contribute to a team. Use his mind not his mouth.

he's been injured too much for teams not to see his stock lowering and if they're shopping him around teams will pick up that they want to get rid of him.
