The Indiana Pacers are in the market for a backup for Paul George.

Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star reports the Pacers are interested in both Courtney Lee or O.J. Mayo to fill the role of backup shooting guard for the team.

Wells said the Pacers are "very, very interested" in Mayo and has been their top choice for years. But there may be a snag.

The Pacers have to decide how much they want to pay the former lottery pick and does Mayo mind continuing to come off the bench.

Lee averaged 11.4 points on 43 percent shooting for the Houston Rockets last season. Mayo didn't start a single game for the Grizzlies last season but averaged 12.6. points per game last year.

George started all 66 games for the Pacers, averaging 12.1 points in the regular season before dipping below 10 points per playoff game in the postseason, where Indiana lost in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
