Default Herb Simon: Tinsley "outlived his welcome"

Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon thinks the team can trade embattled point guard Jamaal Tinsley. If they can't? Simon is so confident they will, he didn't discuss any other scenario during an interview today.

“Tinsley, he’s probably outlived his welcome here,” Simon said. “He’s a very talented player. Teams will give us a hard time because they know it’s better for him and for us to have him play somewhere else. We’re confident that we’ll find a good place.”

Pacers president Larry Bird said in a radio interview last month that he doesn’t believe in buying out contracts. Bird, general manager David Morway and coach Jim O’Brien have all said it’s time for the franchise to part ways with the injury-prone Tinsley.

Simon, who has taken more of a hands-on approach with the franchise, feels the same.

Not much we didn't already know. Good to see that everyone associated with the franchise is actively seeking a trade though.
