A familiar face could be returning to the Indiana Pacers.
There's a possibility that former CEO Donnie Walsh will return to the franchise in some capacity, multiple sources told The Star.
It's uncertain what role Walsh will play with the franchise.
That question should be answered next week when team owner Herb Simon returns to Indianapolis for meetings to help clear up the team's murky front office situation.
Larry Bird talked like he wants to remain as president during his season-ending news conference last month as long as his meeting with Simon went well.
Bird wants Kevin Pritchard, the team's director of player personnel, to be his new general manager.
David Morway, who was the team's general manager, hasn't been around the team in more than two weeks.
Walsh has attended some of the Pacers' predraft workouts at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, according to sources.
Walsh did not return a phone message left for him Friday. The Pacers had no comment.
Simon has always respected Walsh, who spent 24 years with the Pacers and was running the team during its run to the NBA Finals in 2000.
