    Doesn't seem like a Vogel announcement to me. I think they'd label it at least generically as an announcement if it were.

    This is the annual "I have X guys I like, and at least Y of them will be there," "We're going to get someone who can help us", "Always open to the possibility of trades" press conference.

    I think I remember Bird having these types of press conferences for at least the past few years now-- a few days leading up to the Draft he'll basically say "Oh well I'm not sure who we'll pick, but if Chris Paul would be in this Draft I'd definitely take him" blah blah blah...I don't think he'll leak any major news but who knows. I would love for him to publicly name Vogel the head coach tomorrow while announcing Brian Shaw in as lead assistant.

    Honestly, I think the only reason they do this is for some slight local publicity for the news channels to run with on their evening news cycles.

    Kind of a "Hey, don't forget about us!" type thing in my opinion.

    You want to build buzz around the draft. Get fans interested in your selection, and in the team

    Nah. It's for the Digest to scrutinize every joke he makes towards Mike Wells within an inch of its' life.

    There will also be the obligatory question on whether the Pacers like Butler's Mack and Howard where Bird will answer, "Both guys are winning players and will help out a team. We like them just like we like a lot of guys."

    they will do a post draft presser also.

    Where they spin stories about the players picked to whip up support and enthusiasm for their picks. They try and sell the package of how good these players will be with their hype. They had Pacer fandom whipped in a frenzy believing Stephenson and Rolle were faster than a speeding, stronger than a locomotive, and could jump to the top of tall buildings in a single bound. SOS, trying to sell the new players while hoping they will sell more season tickets. Out of both, Stephenson and Rolle, one played 6 games, and the other got cut in training camp.

    IMO, you get your coach on board before the draft, and at least solicit some of his opinions before making your picks/trades. Frank has been around for many years, just not as head coach, so why wouldn't he have something to contribute in the war room?

    I will be disappointed if Frank is not named coach by draft day. It's not like there are a ton of folks to consider at this point, and Bird has had time to conduct interviews.

    It sounds as though Larry and Frank have been in touch this whole time, and furthermore it's a matter of when, not if, Vogel is named head coach. I'm sure Vogel's opinions about the team's players and the draft are well known already.

    With that said, it would be nice to have Shaw on board and start to assimilate his thoughts into the mix.....

    I think it is pretty much all but officially announced that Vogel is the head coach going into next season. So even if it isn't officially announced I don't think you need to be disappointed in any way. They may just be holding back the official announcement for later to try and keep the Pacers in the public eye when there isn't much going on.
