For Wayman Tisdale, it would mean the change in scenery he's been wanting. For Randy Wittman, it would be a return home.
Both say they're packing their bags.The Indiana Pacers reportedly have dealt Tisdale, their fourth-year forward and former first-round draft choice, to the Sacramento Kings for Indianapolis native Wittman and veteran center-forward LaSalle Thompson.
The Indianapolis Star reported the trade in a story in today's editions. In Sacramento, radio station KFBK also reported the Kings had traded Thompson and Wittman to the Pacers, with Tisdale believed to be headed west in exchange.
Kings' management was not available Sunday night for comment on the reports, but KFBK said a news conference was planned today in Sacramento.
Kings Coach Jerry Reynolds wouldn't confirm the trade but likes Tisdale.
"We need to make a move for a consistent post-up player and Wayman Tisdale would fit that bill extremely well. Any player who was the second player in the draft is the kind you would want if you're building," Reynolds said.
Pacer General Manager Donnie Walsh said only, "I have no comment."
But Tisdale and Wittman said the deal was done.
