That’s what Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird and general manager David Morway say is their approach in using up their projected $21 million in salary cap space once the free agency period begins Dec. 9.
“We’re not going to spend all of our money right away,” Bird said. “We come off more next year.”

Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird says he will actively look to improve his team before the season begins.
The Pacers have significant salary cap space, and Bird says he wants to add pieces to a solid young core that features Danny Granger, Darren Collison, Roy Hibbert, Tyler Hansbrough, Paul George and newcomer George Hill. Of that group, only the 28-year-old Granger is older...
The Indiana Pacers can't yet deal with controversial comments recently posted on Brandon Rush's Twitter account.
During a disagreement, an anti-homosexual slur was posted on Rush's account, (at)IamThaKing25. The comment and the rest of the thread have since been removed. Rush's agent, Mark Bartelstein, says the account was hacked.

The Indiana Pacers are where no team likes to be -- right in the middle of the conference. Not good enough to compete for a championship, but just good enough to compete for a playoff spot. The Pacers have been there for a while, finishing with a record lower than .400 just once since 2006. That was the last time the Pacers went to the Playoffs.

That doesn't mean the Pacers haven taken themselves out of the running to acquire an All-Star point guard. The Pacers have had talks with the Celtics about a trade...
Larry Bird has made it clear that his rebuilding plan will carry over to next season.
Welcome back, NBA.
And welcome back, Indiana Pacers.

The great news for the Pacers — one of the NBA’s small-market franchises — is that this tentative collective bargaining agreement, which...
The last time the Bruins went a month of their season without a regular-season loss, man had not yet walked on the moon. The B's 12-0-1 performance in the month of November marked the first time that Boston had completed a month without a loss in regulation. The last time that happened was January of 1969. It's a pretty remarkable run, no doubt, but where does it rank among...
In my childhood I briefly met Larry Bird and other members of the 1979 Indiana State Sycamores team that met Magic Johnson and the Michigan State Spartans in the NCAA championship game. It shaped me in so many ways.Similarly Jack Carney's childhood involved a chance encounter with Marvin Harrison:
My second and more important memory came later during the same year inside of...
Let’s get something straight. I’ll always be a Larry Bird fan and he’ll always be my favorite clutch shooter, hell any shooter in the history of the game, but let’s give credit where credit is due. When it comes to three point contest performances, Craig Hodges not only holds the best score, but the two best scores.
