INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday that Peter Dinwiddie has been promoted to Vice President of Basketball Operations.

Dinwiddie will assist Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Kevin Pritchard and Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh in various capacities, including compliance with the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, assisting in player contract negotiations, salary cap management and compliance with NBA player personnel rules. He is an Indianapolis native who attended Indiana University and has a degree from the New England School of Law.

"Peter is very bright, very intelligent, very thorough and extremely hard working," said Walsh. "Since I returned (in June) and have worked with him on a daily basis, his contributions have been immeasurable. This promotion recognizes his work for the Indiana Pacers. He has a tremendous future in the league."

This guy seems to be the franchise's new golden boy.

Peter was in my HS class at Cathedral. Didn't know him well at all, but he seemed like a good dude. He wasn't a basketball player, though, at least, not at varsity level (if memory serves, I, at 5'11", was taller than he was).

He seems like a pretty stand up guy, I wish him well. Seems like he did an exceptional job in his last role.

Sounds like Morway's replacement (cap guy, legal background). Hope he gets along better with people.

It is me, or does he have the same title as Pritchard.

[EDIT] Nm. There's an "executive" on the front of Pritchard's, lol...

He's been mentioned by both Walsh and Pritchard as having a significant role with the numbers.
