I'm heading out of town and out of touch for the weekend, so please employ the FanPosts or FanShots in my absence should you come across anything of note. In the mean time, here are some links of interest as the Pacers wrap up their pre-draft workouts today:
Pacers to play in Taiwan
According to this report, the Indiana Pacers will play the Denver Nuggets on October 8th in Taiwan. I recall JMV mentioning rumors of the Pacers playing the Nuggs overseas, although I figured it would be in Europe. This is great exposure for the team and validates the positive direction the team has taken over the past couple of years. The NBA wants the Pacers to represent the league in a new market. Cool.
UPDATE: Press release from Pacers.com
