(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Indiana Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird says the team is not actively seeking to trade all-star forward Jermaine O'Neal.
O'Neal has backed off his statement over the weekend that he would "welcome a trade" to the Los Angeles Lakers. O'Neal's comments came as he attended a charity basketball game in Los Angeles.
He says his comments were taken out of context and did not include his desire to stay with the Pacers.
