Indiana Pacers Rumors
Bird has scheduled his season-ending news conference for Thursday at 11 a.m. ET in Indianapolis, but so far hasn’t engaged Vogel in discussions about the coach’s future with the team, league sources said. Bird told Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star that he owed Vogel a decision soon while there were other head-coaching jobs available for him to pursue. Bird also said he needed to discuss Vogel’s future with owner Herb Simon.
Mitch Lawrence: After Larry Bird’s criticisms on Frank Vogel, Pacer execs in player exit meetings: Next year we’ll be going up-tempo more, scoring more, using fewer sets and playing more like Golden State. Can’t see how this helps Vogel keep his job. Sounds like Kevin McHale on his way.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Larry Bird set his annual end-of-season news conference for Thursday. He hasn’t informed Frank Vogel of future, sources tell @TheVertical.
