Larry Bird decided to step down from his position as president of basketball operations for the Indiana Pacers, The Vertical reported Friday.
Bird had been at the position since 2003 and won NBA Executive of the Year in 2012. Bird has had health concerns which have led him to leave the franchise in June 2012, but returned nearly a year later. It’s immediately unclear what is causing Bird to leave this time.
Indiana was eliminated from the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers in four games.
Kevin Pritchard will take over as the president of basketball operations in place of Bird. The Vertical reported that Bird could still be a consultant for Pritchard.
