JaKarr Sampson signed in Italy and Cassius Stanley signed in Detroit, so the Pacers cap sheet got a little update. No more cap holds. Nate Hinton's E10 bonus, if he is cut and reports to the Mad Ants for 60 days, is $50k, as I included in an article earlier today.
Caris LeVert had noticed some discomfort in his back over the summer, but had played through it & didn’t know MRI results until Monday afternoon. “This is pretty minor compared to all that I’ve been through…It isn’t too major, but something that we’ve got to pay attention to.”
“Up until today I’ve been practicing and doing all that stuff...This is pretty minor compared to all that I’ve been through. It’s something that isn’t too major, but it’s something that we need to pay attention to." @CarisLeVert provided an update on his back injury.
This is the most Thad Young quote of all the Thad Young quotes.
Thad Young on his new teammates: "There are not any buttholes. They are a great group of guys. They all play for one another. They all come in to work each and every day, and you can see it, you can see that they want to win, that they want to be better."
Caris LeVert did not practice today due to his back. After having on and off discomfort, he got a CT scan yesterday and is getting a second opinion. “The hope is that it might be two or three weeks, but we’re not sure yet,” Carlisle said. Lamb and Holiday worked with the 1s.
Caris LeVert will get a second opinion on his back shortly, Rick Carlisle says. The hope is that it’s just a “2-3 week” thing, Carlisle adds. LeVert had been experiencing on-and-off discomfort for some time now. The scan that led the Pacers to this point took place yesterday.
