    This could be interesting!

    Could they have hired a coach already?

    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.

    Im guessing its either that or hes just speaking to the public about getting an extension and what he plans on doing in the off-season to improve the team to take them to the next level... Very intriguing.. Im at work but i will be watching the boards closely to see whats going on.

    I predict that MW would ask about Lance at least 3 times.

    They have not hired a coach. This is just about him coming back. I'm sure he'll be asked about coaching choices, however.

    And the Wells/Lance drum getting beaten in seemingly every thread is just as hilarious and entertaining as the Jim O'Brien cracks were for years...... which is to say they aren't .....

    Been in contact with some guys to get a feel if they have a real interest in the job, want to do more talking, been in contact with Frank number of times, lot of people out there feel Frank will get the job, but it';s a process, want to get the right guy in here. More conversations/questions with Franks, see where it goes.

    "I'm really pleased with the job that Frank did, so obviously he's got to be a frontrunner" (and he said this with a tone of sincerity)

    "A lot of guys under consideration. I like Mike, did fantastic job in CLE, but have other guys in mind also."

    "It's just the best fit for your team, four years ago, interviewed a lot of assistant coaches and first time guys, very impressed, a lot of students of the game"

    On what looks for in a coach:

    Communication, what I think coach gets out of players each game and practice, Jimmy did great job of changing the culture, had great practices, comm. at end with players was good, Jimmy got them to work hard in practice,"

    Cited our cap space this year then said, "And next year we have James and Brandon coming off".

    Notice he didn't include Roy, but did include Brandon...

    (On if FA's will want to come to IND) "I think if you have the fan support and players that play hard every night and together and you have a good locker room, a lot of guys like that situation"

    Not sure if current coaches will be involved with draftee workouts.
