    NBA awards votes could mean an extra $75 million for Pacers' Paul George



    By Adam Kilgore
    Washington Post

    In theory, a clause tying awards voting to maximum salaries in the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement seemed fraught. Now that it is about to be put into practice, it seems downright nuts. Later this week, when writers and broadcasters send in their All-NBA teams, they may well determine the franchise trajectory of the Indiana Pacers and whether Paul George will put roughly an extra $75 million in his bank account.

    That strange development - actually a workable solution for the NBA, but a faulty bargain for voters - derives from the concept of the Designated Player Exception. If a player approaching free agency on his second contract is named MVP or Defensive Player of the Year or makes an all-NBA team while either playing for the team that drafted him or that traded for him while on his rookie contract, he becomes eligible to sign a maximum contract extension well above the typical rate for his service time. The NBA pushed for the DPE to give teams an edge in signing their own superstars and to better match pay with performance.

    Pacers Down Hawks, Clinch No. 7 Seed In East
    April 12, 2017 by NBA News

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Paul George finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds, Jeff Teague added 19 points and the Indiana Pacers clinched a playoff spot Wednesday with a 104-86 victory over Atlanta.

    The Pacers completed the regular season on a five-game winning streak to earn the Eastern Conference’s No. 7 seed. They will face Cleveland in the opening round.

    Ersan Ilyasova scored 15 points and Jose Calderon had 12 on a night the Hawks rested five of their top six players. Thabo Sefolosha played 23 minutes but didn’t score as Atlanta saw its four-game winning streak end. The Hawks will face Washington in the opening round.

    Indiana took advantage of the backups by pulling out to a 22-15 lead after one quarter and starting the third quarter on a 9-2 run to turn a seven-point into a 59-45 cushion. The Hawks never seriously challenged again.

    Pang pacers talaga si lance stephenson.....Sa bobcats, clippers pinag shooting guard nila kaya hindi effective. Magada pinakita sa grizzlies and wolves kaso nainjured.

    Pero ang taba ni stephenson ngayon pero magaling pa din.

    Larry Bird stepping down as president of Pacers

    Larry Bird is stepping down as president of the Indiana Pacers, The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears has confirmed. General manager Kevin Pritchard will take over the team.

    The news was first reported by The Vertical.

    Among Bird's biggest accomplishments with the team was drafting Danny Granger in 2005 and Paul George in 2010. The team also selected Kawhi Leonard in 2011 but traded his draft rights to the Spurs for George Hill.

    Bird leaves the Pacers ahead of a pivotal summer in which the franchise will have to decide what to do with George. He can become a free agent after next season and there is wide speculation that he would prefer to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Pacers will have to decide whether to try to persuade him to stay long term or trade him.

    George has not hesitated to make known his displeasure with the direction of the franchise, setting up for what is sure to be a tense summer of talks and decisions that need to be made.

    A reason for Bird's departure has not been confirmed, but sources told ESPN's Mike Wells that the plan had always been for Bird to strongly suggest to owner Herb Simon that Pritchard take over as president when Bird eventually stepped down. Bird's preference over the years has been to have year-to-year contracts for himself.

    Bird, 60, became head coach of the Pacers in 1997, winning Coach of the Year his first season. He resigned in 2000, but rejoined the team in 2003 as president of basketball operations. He won NBA Executive of the Year after the 2011-12 season, after the Pacers advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals, losing to the Miami Heat in six games. He retired in 2012 but took only a year off. He came back to the team as president of basketball operations.

    He is the only person in NBA history to be named MVP, Coach of the Year and Executive of the Year.

    The Pacers have announced that Bird is scheduled to have an end-of-season news conference on Monday.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.
