West says he has not been given any directive by the Pacers' front office to stop or curtail his social media commentary. "Never," he said. "At times, I do get, I have gotten, 'Be careful,' sort of indirectly. But not from anybody in the front office or anything. I try to be responsible and I try to come from a point of view where you can clearly understand what I'm trying to say. I'm not reckless. I'm not promoting anything. I don't use it for that. NBA.com

As for Price, he proved that he is a bona fide NBA point guard. When the Pacers called him, he was just days away from signing a contract to play in China. Now, he will undoubtedly have options. He could get a shot on another NBA team or he could opt to head overseas, but you have to think his list of suitors has gotten longer. NBA.com

In his previous nine appearances before Wednesday, Price, 28, helped steady the second unit by averaging 10.4 points and 2.4 assists. Price scored 22 points during a Nov. 10 win over Utah, only his third game with the Pacers. Also, Price made 34.3 percent of his 3-pointers and even knocked down a deep shot in the fourth quarter against Dallas on Monday that pulled the Pacers ahead to a nine-point lead. "I think I played decent. I played well," Price said. "Hopefully, I've done enough to stick around somewhere." Indianapolis Star

"I'm optimistic it'll work out, if not here then somewhere else," continued Price, who said he will also contemplate playing in an international league. "Everything's an option at this point. You can't rule anything out at this point. If I'm not able to get a job here in the NBA, then overseas is definitely an option." Indianapolis Star

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has a come up with a proposal to level the playing field between the NBA's two conferences. Cuban suggests a conference realignment that would result in a total of eight teams, including the Mavs, switching conferences. In Cuban's plan, the Mavs, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans would move to the Eastern Conference. The Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks would move to the West. "It's not like it'd be the first time we've ever realigned," Cuban said. "It's happened many times before, so there's precedent and I just think it shakes things up and makes things interesting." ESPN.com

"It's not like you're reducing competition," said Cuban, who noted that the teams he suggested moving to the West are approximately the same distance from Portland as Dallas and closer than New Orleans, San Antonio and Houston. "You keep Cleveland, Washington and other good teams in the East. It kind of shakes things up in terms of not just interest but also in terms of how people rebuild. "It just changes things up and it changes the thought process of a lot of teams. It makes both conferences very competitive, at least for the short-term and I think, based on the history of the teams, for the long-term as well." ESPN.com

Sure, the Indiana forward acknowledges, it would have been nice to join the Spurs back in 2007-08 and play with Manu Ginobili, his best friend and fellow Argentine. But there is another lost opportunity he regrets even more. “To have a chance to play with Manu would have been big, but I played with Manu every summer,” Scola said Tuesday. “The chance to play with Tim Duncan, that will always be hard to miss, because he’s my biggest hero.” San Antonio Express-News

NBA All-Star Paul George has amicably settled his once-searing paternity battle with New York beauty Daniela Rajic over their 7-month-old daughter, Olivia. The injured 24-year-old Indiana Pacers star — who earns about $18 million a year — and ex-stripper Rajic on Tuesday reached a “joint parenting agreement” and child-support settlement over Olivia, Page Six has exclusively learned.
