Reggie Miller Comments On Front Office Chatter With Pacers

New, comment

Former Indiana Pacers legend, Reggie Miller addressed the recent reports that Pacers owner Herb Simon had been inquiring about Miller as a possible replacement for Larry Bird when the time comes for Bird to leave the front office.

Miller sent a comment to NBA.com that reads like it penned by an over-anxious legal rep. I guess this is what they mean by a formal denial.

"After playing my entire 18-year career and spending the better part of my adult life affiliated with the Pacers; I'm honored to be mentioned as someone Mr. Simon, whom I respect a great deal, would consider for such an important role within the organization. I have had no formal discussions or meetings at this time with Mr. Simon or Pacers management."

How about any casual, off-the-cuff discussions? Reads even worse on Twitter, but point taken -- there is nothing to the recent rumors, although he doesn't say he wouldn't listen.
