Ty Lawson Won't Work Out For Pacers

Yikes, this is one of those times when a quick read of the RSS headlines makes your heart sink. The Indy Star reported the DUI arrest of North Carolina's Ty Lawson with the headline -- Pacers prospect charged with DUI.

I admit, seeing "Pacers" and "DUI" made me flinch and read a little closer. Only then did I realize it was Lawson who was in trouble two days after working out for the Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Lawson's stock seemed to be on the rise and may still be in other stops around the league. But for accuracy, this headline should've read -- Former Pacers prospect charged with DUI, because there's no doubt he just dropped off the Pacers draft board.
