INDIANA PACERS VIDEOS
I saw you said they gave Michael Beasley's No. 8 to Shawne Williams. So I guess they're not going to retire Bease's number? (OK, so it means he's not coming back?) -- Henrique. A: An adjustment still could be made if Beasley is brought back, but that is an increasing longshot. But it's also not as if the Heat are mass producing Shawne Williams jerseys at this stage, either. While Beasley appears to be in the rearview mirror, the Heat still seems to be lacking on the wing, where the current options are Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Danny Granger, Reggie Williams, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson. There simply is not a lot of one-on-one creativity there, no one, really, other that Wade who can score off the dribble. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Paul George is switching his jersey number from 24 to 13, and according to league rules, a player who changes jersey numbers on the same team has to buy the remaining merchandise from the marketplace. Well, the Pacers forward did just that and made a nice gesture by giving it all to his former high school. beyondthebuzzer.com
The Indiana Pacers received word Tuesday afternoon that they have been granted the disabled player exception by the NBA, a team spokesman said. The exception, applied for after Paul George’s leg injury suffered during a USA Basketball scrimmage, allows the team to sign another player in his absence. The Pacers can spend up to $5.3 million on a free agent, or $5.4 million on a player acquired in a trade who is on the last year of his deal. However, they really only have about $1.7 million to offer because they will not go into the luxury tax. Vigilant Sports
