Indiana Pacers Fired 3 Scouts

by August 09, 2011

The Indiana Pacers became the latest NBA team to cut personnel expenditures during the NBA lockout, giving three of its scouts their walking papers. From the Indy Star: “The Indiana Pacers have let go of scouts Brian Winters, Leonard Perry and Joe Ash in a cost-cutting move because of the NBA’s current lockout. Winters is a former NBA and WNBA coach. He scouted Paul George, the No. 10 pick in the 2010 draft, while George was at Fresno State. Ash spent eight years with the Pacers, including part of the time as director of scouting. Perry joined the Pacers as an assistant coach for Rick Carlisle in 2006.”
