Pacers Land Jasikevicius

The Pacers announced the signing of Euro superstar Sarunas Jasikevicius this weekend, a player that has been deemed a marquee steal for whichever team landed him. Larry Bird and Donnie Walsh were able to offer up 3 years and $12 million to the 3-time Euroleague champ, but it was reportedly the opportunity to play for a contender that swayed Jasikevicius to elect for the blue and yellow over the likes of Utah and Cleveland. Look for the Pacers to tie up their summer by waiving either Anthony Johnson or Austin Croshere under the "Allen Houston Amnesty Rule", re-sign James Jones, and then possibly trying to swing a trade that relieves them of Jonathan Bender. But as it stands now, the 2005-06 Pacers lineup already appears set and certainly has the look of a serious contender.
