Josh Powell Will Make the Pacers

From the Indianapolis Star.

The Pacers weren't allowed the luxury of idle admiration, however. Powell's contract became guaranteed Sunday, forcing them to back their optimism with a commitment of nearly $750,000, his salary for this season.

Carlisle describes that as an easy decision. The Pacers will have to trade or release three players to get to the league limit of 15 heading into the season, but the 6-9 Powell seems safe.
Not a real big surprise, but I was holding a little bit of hope that Powell might be cut and end up back in Dallas.
