Larry Bird to Step Back as President of Basketball Operations?

Reportedly, Larry Bird may be giving up his position as President of Basketball Operations. The Indianapolis Star, says "a person with direct knowledge of the situation," claims that Bird is "100 percent sure" in his choice to back away.

The Pacers called a press conference for on Tuesday but have made no statement regarding Bird.

Bird was excited about the future of the team and the part he played in bringing the Pacers back in a press conference on May 30th but has not spoken to the press since.

Last summer he signed free agent power forward, David West and traded for point guard George Hill, which proved to be a good move.

"I love my job," he said. "This is one of the best, there's just 30 of them. Obviously we went through some tough times and now we're reaping the benefits of what we saw three or four years ago."

There are 6 free agents and the Pacers hold the No. 26 pick in this week's draft. Restrictions apply to Hill and Roy Hibbert. Leandro Barbosa, Lou Amundson, Kyrylo Fesenko and A.J. Price are unrestricted while Dahntay Jones is faced with a decision to relinquish the final season of his contract to become a free agent.

The details surrounding a decision to leave the team are not confirmed. With the shifts in front office positions, the Pacers need to know who is leading them.
