Some think the Pacers are rounding the corner, and positioned to take a significant leap forward this offseason. Others don’t see an additional five regular season wins as a reason for great optimism.
Morway spoke like a man who buys into the former. The Pacers will draft 15th next month, assuming they keep the pick, but prior to that they will hire Frank Vogel to be the next head coach. Morway didn’t tell us that about Vogel, but there is no way they go out and hire Mike Brown, Dwane Casey, or Rick Adelman to potential upend the positive momentum created during the second half of the 2010-2011 season after Vogel took over.
The Pacers, if the is a season next year, will be able to sell a few tickets based on thethat momentum, and they’ll capitalize on that.
It may or may not be the right choice, but that will be the choice. Morway was loquacious and good-humored. I enjoyed the conversation.
