Jerryd Bayless Traded to Portland Trailblazers

The Indiana Pacers have a tentative agreement to send forward Ike Diogu and the rights to guard Jerryd Bayless to Portland for point guard Jarrett Jack, forward Josh McRoberts and the rights to shooting guard Brandon Rush.

McRoberts was a McDonald’s All-American while at Carmel High School and returns his home state after his rookie year.

“I just talked to Josh and he’s elated,” McRoberts mother Jennifer said tonight. “He just called and he’s really, really excited about it.”
