Walsh: Pacers aren't receiving calls about O'Neal any more

Pacer GM Donnie Walsh said Friday that trade talks for Jermaine O'Neal have died down and that he fully expects the 6'-11" O'Neal to play for Indiana this season. "Trades can always come up, but in our minds, Jermaine is here and our team's intact," Walsh told The Associated Press, adding that the team hasn't received any offers lately. O'Neal had suggested earlier this summer that he would welcome a trade to Los Angeles or New Jersey, then said he didn't want to leave the Pacers.
