Pacers made it official Saturday, making their tough front court, even tougher. The Pacers may have closed the gap against Miami with Scola, and the return of Granger. The Heat haven't done anything to their roster, besides using the amnesty clause on Mike Miller.
Scola, a 6-foot-9 forward from Argentina, played his first five NBA seasons with the Houston Rockets before coming to Phoenix a year ago when the Suns submitted the winning bid under the league's amnesty rule. He appeared in all 82 games for the Suns, averaging 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds. It was the fifth time in his career that he's played in all games.
The 6-foot-8 Green has played for six teams since coming to the NBA in 2005. The 6-11 Plumlee was selected in the first round by the Pacers last year, the 26th selection overall, but appeared in only 14 games.
