This comes from WTHR sports guy Rich Nye via Facebook:
Pacers owner Herb Simon told me he hopes Larry Bird will stay on as
team president. Simon wants to meet with Bird about future as soon as
possible.Thumbs up on both statements!Simon says he's "sort of disappointed" that Bird would question
whether the team owner is willing to spend money on free agents this summer. Simon says he has no problem spending up to the luxury tax threshold on player salaries.
