Australian free agent forward Joe Ingles is attracting interest from four teams – the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers – that believe his defense and outside shooting could translate into the NBA next season, a league source told RealGM.
Ingles has discussed potential workouts for teams, and he also has lucrative offers from clubs wanting to keep him in Europe.
After averaging 15 points, five rebounds and 4.2 assists for Australia in the 2012 Olympics – including a 19-point, eight-rebound, six-assist effort against Team USA – Ingles had a strong close to the Spanish ACB season. He scored 25 points on five three-pointers against Real Madrid in the championship game.
Ingles, 25, spent the past three seasons with FC Barcelona.
