The Indiana Pacers have added both C.J. Miles and Damjan Rudez through free agency, but they have yet to lock up Lance Stephenson to a long-term deal. Larry Bird and the Pacers offered Stephenson a five-year, $44 million contract, but he felt that the team was low-balling him and turned the deal down. Since Stephenson turned down the contract, the Pacers have been looking to make some major moves via trade. One name that came up recently was Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic, but those rumors have since gone away.

If the Pacers are truly hoping to make it to the NBA Finals in the Eastern Conference, they are not going to be able to stick with their current group of starters. Even if LeBron James decides to leave the Miami Heat, he will make the Cleveland Cavaliers a better team than what Indiana currently has. Bird needs to make something happen on the trade market in order to satisfy the hungry Pacers fans.

There are three trades that the Pacers could look into making if they are serious about making a big move and blowing up their core. Who should they look to acquire to help take them to the next level?
