Pacers Trade Collison, Jones To Mavs For Mahinmi

THURSDAY, 4:51pm: Indiana announced the deal through an official press release

WEDNESDAY: The Pacers have traded Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones to the Mavs for Ian Mahinmi, who will sign a four-year, $16MM contract as part of the deal, reports Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com (Twitter links). Jones is due $2.9MM next season and Collison about $2.3MM, so, as John Hollinger of ESPN.com points out, that eats into the amnesty bid the team could make for Elton Brand (Twitter link). Presumably, this also takes Dallas out of the running for Aaron Brooks.

The Pacers are expected to either match Roy Hibbert's offer sheet from the Blazers or sign him outright, so Mahinmi will likely be the backup center for the team. Indiana also has 7'0" Miles Plumlee, the team's first-round draft pick.

Finally Mavs! Your offseason has sucked, but at least there’s a fighting chance for the bottom half of the playoffs next year with Collison and Kaman (though not re-signing Jet for such a small amount that he let them match is ridiculous).

Now go get Brand/Landry to backup at PF, sign a defensive specialist (Pietrus/Raja) who can guard the elite scoring wingmen, maybe take a low risk/high reward flyer on a guy who can generate scoring off the bench (Nate Robinson) and call it good for the off-season.

Thrilled the Mavs don’t have to go with Ramon Sessions at point. They… Read more »
