NBA Trade Rumors 2011: David West Signs Two-Year, $20-Million Deal With Indiana Pacers

It wasn't the Boston Celtics that landed All-Star forward David West Sunday. Instead, it was the Indiana Pacers who signed the star to a two-year, $20-million deal and vastly improved their front court. The news comes as a bit of surprise, as of Saturday night it seemed the Celtics were the favorite to land west in a sign-and-trade deal. However, the New Orleans Hornets did not want to take Boston forward Jermaine O'Neal, so the deal stalled sometime this weekend.

On Friday, Boston traded for forward Brandon Bass, who was swapped for Glen Davis. If West was picked up by Boston, the 31-year-old, who's coming off of reconstructed knee surgery, would have been battling for playing time with Bass and aging veteran Kevin Garnett.

Last season in 70 games, West averaged 18. points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game

NBA Trade Rumors 2011: David West To Indiana Pacers Not Boston Celtics?

The sign-and-trade deal between the Boston Celtics and New Orleans Hornets for two-time All Star forward David West seems to be hitting the skids, as the Indian Pacers have entered as the favorite to land the star. According to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, the Pacers are close to signing West to a two-year, $20-million deal after talks between the Hornets and Celtics flamed out because New Orleans did not want Boston forward Jermaine O'Neal.

"It was not immediately known if the Celtics would try to salvage their West deal with the New Orleans Hornets, said Stein. "The Pacers, sources say, also have Carl Landry and Andrei Kirilenko alongside West at the top of their frontcourt wish list."

On Saturday night, Nola.com reported that the sign-and-trade between Boston and New Orleans was almost a done deal, however, that doesn't seem to be the case.

West, 31, averaged 18.9 points per game in 2010-11, but will be entering this season coming off of reconstructive surgery, which was done late last season after an ACL tear.

NBA Trade Rumors 2011: Celtics Working On Sign-And-Trade For Hornets' David West

Just a few days after trading for forward Brandon Bass, the Boston Celtics seem to be looking to add another piece to their frontcourt, as Nola.com reported Saturday night that the New Orleans Hornets and Celtics are working on a sign-and-trade deal for All-Star forward David West. The deal reportedly will feature the Celtics shipping forward Jermaine O'Neal to New Orleans.

"If they've got a chance to make the team better in their opinion," O'Neal told the Worcester Telegraph after practice Saturday , "they'll make a trade. You can't control those types of things. You just show up and come to work and focus on that."

If the two-time All Star is traded to Boston, he would be in competing for playing time against future Hall-of-Famer Kevin Garnett and Bass.

West, 31, is looking rebound from a tough 2010-11 season that featured him suffering an ACL injury that required reconstructive knee surgery. Last season, West did play in 70 games and averaged 18.9 points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game.
