Lance is electric, he’s captivating. You don’t want to turn away. His number one strength and number one weakness is the same: His emotion. “When Lance came back last year at the end of the season, he really gave a jolt of energy not just to the team, but also to the fan base,” Todd Taylor, the Chief Marketing Officer of the Pacers, said. “I think it’s interesting, there were differentiating opinions from both sides earlier on, but I think like all of us in like, when you have a little bit of perspective and distance, you find out that this is where you should have been all along. We love the edge that he brings, the energy. He’s been great in the community, he’s been great for us.”

Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent center Marshall Plumlee has agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources tell ESPN.
When the camp’s guest speaker, former Knicks star and current assistant general manager Allan Houston, was asked if that’s the jersey Anthony will be wearing for the upcoming season, the two-time All-Star shooting guard wouldn’t take the open shot. “That’s not for me to speak on,” Houston said with a laugh. “That’s for the boss.”
Houston did have kind words for his new bosses, president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry. “Steve and Scott have been intentional in their language about what we want to be,” said Houston, who played nine of his 12 seasons with the Knicks. “It starts with identifying what you want to be and then going out and doing it.”
