Jamaal Tinsley will not practice with the Pacers as the team continues trying to trade him.
Larry Bird, the team's president, maintains that the team will not buy out Tinsley's contract.
"He will stay wherever he's at until we get something done. Jamaal knows that, his agent knows it, and we know it," Bird said. "Nothing has changed from what we said at the beginning of the year."
"We're going to try to get the best deal for us. If it drags on a little bit, then that's what it's got to be."
Tinsley has played his entire career with the Pacers, having been sent to Indiana from Atlanta after being drafted in the first round in 2001.
