Thorn says clearing the congestion behind the playing area was planned even before Indiana's Paul George broke his right leg when he crashed into the stanchion last month during a USA Basketball exhibition game. "The conversations about this topic preceded Paul's injury by several years," Thorn said. "As a matter of fact, at our league meetings in July we informed our teams this was the direction we were going. But of course when an injury occurs like the one to Paul, it reaffirms the changes we have made and the need to continue to evaluate our policies." USA Today Sports

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
