The Pacers tried to throw point guard T.J. Ford into Wednesday's four-team trade.

When that didn't work they tried to negotiate a buyout with the veteran to a similar result.

Indiana offered Ford a buyout of $5 million.

"I'm not taking a buyout," said Ford, who is scheduled to make $8.5 million this coming season.

Can't say I blame him.  I would counter offer at $8.5 minus the league minimum for his number of years.  He will find a roster spot somewhere, so someone else is going to pay him.

Couter at $6.5 and get $2M from the next team.
