We don’t know there was a deal in place or not. For all we know, Hayward was using Indiana as leverage to get more money out of NY or Charlotte. Woj said yesterday that Hayward was open to a few S&T destinations besides Indiana.What in the name of tarnation are you babbling about? No one's saying that anyone's a fucking victim. But Hayward ain't going to be overjoyed about the Pacers backing out of their deal with him. If he'd known that the Pacers were going to welch I'm pretty certain that the family would have held off moving until they knew his next destination.
And, yeah, I don't think that Mark Bartelstein will be returning phone calls to Pritchard anytime soon, because no matter what the financial results he now knows absolutely that Pritchard can't be trusted to keep his word.
