INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Change could be on the horizon for the Indiana Pacers.
Team CEO Donnie Walsh said there will be meetings in the coming week regarding the franchise's direction after the Pacers missed the playoffs for the first time since the 1996-97 season.
``We are very disappointed with the season that concludes tonight,'' Walsh said in a statement.
Walsh said he and President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird will meet this week while attending the NBA Board of Governors meeting, and that he'll meet with the team's ownership over the weekend.
The Pacers were 29-24 on Feb. 21, but then lost 11 games in a row to fall out of the top eight in the Eastern Conference. A loss to Detroit on April 3 clinched the Pacers' first losing season in a decade. The Pacers were officially knocked out of the playoff picture on Sunday when Orlando beat Boston.
``As time permits, we will also meet with all players and the basketball staff,'' Walsh said. ``We expect those meetings to conclude early next week.''
