Signing A.J. Price Next Task For Pacers; T.J. Ford Dials Up Fans

The to do list is nearly complete for Larry Bird and David Morway.

Now that we're officially into September, it appears that the Pacers have one task remaining since the sign-and-trade deal with the Celtics never materialized. Second round pick, A.J. Price needs a contract to complete the 14 man roster the Pacers desire heading into the season.

According to Mr. Coons (question 98), the Pacers need to tender a contract offer to Price by September 6th to keep him from becoming a free agent. Now he may already have an offer and the two sides are working out the details, but if not it the offer should be on the way this week. Considering Jim O'Brien has repeatedly referred to Price as the potential steal of the draft, there's no way the team can let Price slip away without giving him a chance. Of course, as James White taught us, there's no reason to get too excited and over-commit when it isn't necessary.

Check out a few links of interest after the jump including a few reasons why teams are smart to wait on signing second round picks, along with T.J. Ford (Tweet J. Ford?) connecting with fans through his Twitter account.
