Trade rumor roundup: Pacers shopping D.J. Augustin, Gerald Green, Tyler Hansbrough

Here’s a roundup of the rumors that are making their way around the web midday Thursday, hours before the 3 p.m. NBA trade deadline.

The Pacers are dangling D.J. Augustin, Gerald Green [1] and Tyler Hansbrough [2], according to the Indianapolis Star [3]. While they are 33-21 and owners of the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Pacers are looking to strengthen their roster as they look toward the playoffs.

Augustin ($3.5 million) and Hansbrough ($3.05 million) are on expiring contracts. Augustin will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, while Hansbrough will be restricted.

Green, the athletic former Celtic, signed a three-year, $10.5 million deal last offseason but has struggled to find his niche.

‘€¢ Magic guard J.J. Redick, who becomes a free agent this offseason, is said to be receiving plenty of interest [4]. Redick makes $6.19 million this season but reportedly wants close to $10 million per year for his next deal, leading to the Magic taking calls. Redick is averaging a career-best 15.2 points and 4.4 assists in 31.6 minutes per game. The Spurs are one of the teams rumored to have an interest.

‘€¢ Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted [5] that the Raptors have emerged as the frontrunners to land Suns guard (and onetime Celtic) Sebastian Telfair [6], crediting league sources. Telfair’s minutes have dropped since the Suns made a coaching change last month (hiring Lindsey Hunter to replace Alvin Gentry).

Wojnarowski also tweeted [7] that the Hornets are struggling to find a team that will trade a high enough first-round draft pick for Gerald Henderson [8].

‘€¢ The New Orleans Time Picayune reports that the Hornets are offering guard Eric Gordon [9]. One option has Gordon going to the Warriors for Klay Thompson, although Golden State apparently isn’t very interested in that deal.
