A bit of non-news. Pacers guard Luther Head has agreed to a two-year contract with the New Orleans Hornets.
Not much of a loss for the Pacers to be honest, especially since it looks like Lance Stephenson will be good enough to get some minutes. Head fell out of the rotation regularly under Jim O’Brien (so did most of the other guys) and averaged 7.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 47 games last season.
Now the question is whether New Orleans is shopping second-year PG Darren Collison. If so, send him the Pacers’ way! We’ll take him with open arms. Before you get too excited, this is just wishful thinking. Head is more of a backup SG (though he can play the point) and it’s doubtful whether the Hornets are interested in trading him. Besides, even if they are, the Pacers’ history suggests that he won’t end up in Indiana (or he’ll suddenly become a bust once he gets here).
