    I don’t think the Pacers will let that room exception sit. They’ll use it on somebody, either before the season or during the year. They want to win, and they’re well below the tax line.

    • Bob Bobson

      Possibly, but looking at recent history, the Simon(s) are sticklers for not spending more than they have to.

      • Chuck Myron

        Well, true, the Simons aren’t exactly going to throw money around. But their payroll right now is lower than last year’s, so I think if Bird can make a convincing case, he’ll have the spending power.

  2. Chris Crouse

    Wonder if they make a run at Big Baby Davis. He’s looking for a contender and in the east, the Pacers might be the fourth best team.
