Dennis Lindsey and David Morway were texting furiously. It was still the early stages of the 2011 NBA draft, but the top executives with the Spurs and Pacers, respectively, were plotting something. Sometime around the no. 11 pick, they decided it was time to just get on the phone. The Spurs had already agreed to send George Hill to the Pacers for Indiana's no. 15 pick, but only if a particular player or players were still on the board. Both teams were worried the deal would not happen by the time Utah was on the clock at no. 12. The Pacers didn't even know which player the Spurs wanted, Morway says.
