The Pacers' issue with Vogel

08:07 AM ET 06.10 | According to a recent report, the Pacers are closing in on the permanent hire of Frank Vogel. The biggest issue had been the organization's concern over Vogel's ability to police the locker room and command the respect of players. Vogel was promoted to interim coach after the firing of head coach Jim O'Brien in February. Despite a 20-18 finish to the regular season and a competitive first-round playoff loss to the top-seeded Chicago Bulls, there was slippage on issues like punctuality and discipline, league sources said. To remedy that, Vogel has worked with management to target several strong assistant coaches, including [Terry Porter and J.B. Bickerstaff]. Vogel is the league's youngest coach at 37, and doesn't have the stature that might otherwise command easier respect.
