David Morway resigned as general manager of the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday amid reports that Larry Bird will be gone, too.
The Indianapolis Star reported that Bird is expected to leave the Pacers. The team and owner Herb Simon declined comment.
The 55-year-old Bird was Pacers coach from 1997 to 2000, returning to the front office in 2003. He became GM in 2008 and was this season's NBA's executive of the year.
Stoudemire fined for slurAmar'e Stoudemire has been fined $50,000 by the NBA after the New York Knicks star tweeted a gay slur. Stu Jackson, the league's executive vice president of basketball operations, announced the fine in a release, calling Stoudemire's language offensive and derogatory.
Stoudemire apologized Sunday to a fan for using the slur in response to a crude tweet in which the fan admonished the all-star to "make up for this past season."
