Pacers Interested in Ty Lawson?

by June 15, 2010

According to both ESPN and the Indy Star, Ty Lawson could be a man on the move this summer: “Here’s an interesting item Chad Ford wrote in his blog Monday. ‘A number of NBA sources are telling me that the Denver Nuggets are in the hunt for a Top 10 pick. Nuggets GM Mark Warkentein has been calling around trying to gauge interest in teams selling the pick. According to sources Warkentein is offering Ty Lawson for the pick.’ The Pacers are interested in Lawson, according to a source. The Pacers are willing to give up their pick – No. 10 – in next week’s draft to get a player that will help them immediately. The Pacers wouldn’t be searching for a point guard if they had taken Lawson instead of Tyler Hansbrough last year. Lawson, who was the Pacers’ second option, averaged 8.3 points and 3.1 assists last season.”
