Thread: Lance not allowed in Conseco

  1. #1

    Default Lance not allowed in Conseco

    This is so weird. Two tweets from Mr. Wells...

    Pacers taking strong stance with Lance Stephenson. He hasn't been permitted to workout at Conseco since his alleged incident last month.
    Stephenson is working out with asst. coaches at different facility in Indy and also getting counseling help.
    They have him quarantined so he doesn't contaminate the other rooks apparently...

    If this is how it's going to be, they may as well just cut him.

    I totally agree........

    EDIT: Looks like Magnum may have a spot on the team.

    It's not looking good for Lance. The best thing he did this summer was sign a guarranteed deal. At least we only owe him $750,000 this year and just over $800,000 next. Maybe if he gets cut and sits out a year, he can get a tryout with a team next year.

    Doubt it. If the allegations are true then a good portion of it, if not all, will be going to his (hopefully) ex-gf.

    I'm guessing the separation is so he doesn't plead his case to the players and then things get leaked to media etc...

    But isolation and working out with other coaches makes it seem like they aren't giving up in case they get stuck with him. I really hope that they can get something resolved before things get rolling for the season. The last thing the Pacers need is a "?" next to a player and end up with more lineup problems and player development setbacks.

    I'm on the whole "Cut your losses with Lance" bandwagon and suspect that the Pacers FO ( mainly for PR reasons and the Party line that the FO has been towing since the Brawl ), so I don't look at it that way.

    A Player with a guaranteed Contract is guaranteed to certain benefits as part of his contract....in this case access to Pacers facilities to practice.

    My guess is that they learned from the whole Tinsley lockout and that this type of issue was brought up as part of negotiation tactics on Tinsley's side. Lance is technically working out at a Pacers facilities....just not the main one that everyone else is working out at.

    Although Lance should be given the "benefit of the doubt" and is "innocent until proven guilty", given what they probably know of the situation ( which if far more then what we know on the outside )....it looks like the FO is preparing for the worst and are taking steps towards that direction ( buying him out or waiving him ) while allowing for some wiggle room to change direction JUST IN CASE things work out in the end.

    It seemed like an exile until I read that he's still working out with the Pacers assistant coaches. It sounds like they are just trying to keep the media away more than they are trying to keep lance away.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Good info from Wells, I wondered about where Lance was. Roy tweeted yesterday that Roy, Paul G, McBob, and and Juice (AJ Price) were working out.

    Interesting, you could read a bunch into this or it could just be covering bases.

    Like, he's getting couseling? I mean makes sense, but that sounds like something you do when you're making ammends or trying to. I said when this all went down, that was the best thing he could do from a personal standpoint, PR standpoint, & legal standpoint. Courts will be more lenient if a person has tried to fix things without being ordered to do so.

    I wonder how they'll treat training camp. Is he not allowed in, if he's still in this same status?

    We need some PD spies to look in and see how he looks. I wonder how beefed up he is.

    When Dale would come in from an offseason of mainly lifting he was huge.

    It's the right move. Keep him in purgatory until his legal issues are settled.

    Nothing is going to change in the next 3 and a half weeks. Court date is mid October.

    So I think this means he will not be in training camp.

    I dont think so

    If he is proven not guilty then what leagl right would they have to "bannish" him

    Players union would step in, we would lose just like we lost the Tinsley arbitration

    IDK why, but I have confidence (or maybe it's hope) that Lance will be on the team this season. I can't wait to see him on the court.

    The trial won't be until the first of the year at the absolute earliest.

    I hope your right. I like a feel good story and would like nothing better than this to be the defining moment in Lance's life

    More than basketball , I would like him to realize he has anger management isues, is not a "king" and life wont treat him with royalty

    I would love for Lance to truly change, and become a better man

    I dont think its too late

    I talked to Hansbrough for a few minutes at the Indy airport a couple of weeks ago... he looked pretty cut in his street clothes, and perhaps with a bit of a better build than last year, but then again... I thought he was pretty ripped last year.

    He said that he's being restricted by team physicians, and believes he could go more full out if unbridled... and seemed eager to get his career back on track.

    (fingers crossed)
