IMPENDING GRIEVANCE: The NBPA in the next week is expected to file a grievance against the Pacers on behalf of locked-out G Jamaal Tinsley, who was banished from the team in October. Tinsley's agent, Raymond Brothers, said that he wants the team to "trade Tinsley, buy out his contract or waive him." The trade deadline is February 19. Brothers: "We've tried to deal with the Pacers in a professional manner, but it's gotten us nowhere" (INDYSTAR.com, 2/3). Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird said Monday that a trade "remains a possibility and that he is talking with several teams." He added, "We're not bringing him back. Our owner made that clear" (ESPN.com, 2/3).
