One of the League’s best frontcourts just got better.
According to Yahoo, the Pacers are on the verge of adding a veteran big man Luis Scola to their frontcourt in exchange for Miles Plumlee, Gerald Green and a 2014 lottery protected first-round pick.
Reports surfaced late Friday night, and final terms of the deal were revealed Saturday afternoon:
Pacers will trade Miles Plumlee, Gerald Green and 2014 protected 1st round pick to Suns for Luis Scola, sources tell Y! Sports.

The trade addresses the Pacers’ greatest need at backup power forward, while increasing their bench’s offensive potency with Scola joining Danny Granger, CJ Watson and Chris Copeland.
