Pacers Nearly Complete Trade For OJ Mayo

Last updated on Friday, February 25, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Pacers are apparently standing pat as the NBA trade deadline passed on Thursday afternoon.

They reportedly were working on a three-way deal with the Memphis Grizzlies and the New Orleans Hornets.

The proposed deal would have sent Josh McRoberts and a 2011 first-round draft pick to the Grizzlies and Brandon Rush to the Hornets.

In return, the Pacers would have received OJ Mayo from Memphis and a first-round pick and two unidentified players from New Orleans.

The deal fell apart when New Orleans backed out.

The Pacers and Grizzlies then attempted to complete a McRoberts for Mayo deal but ran out of time.
