Pacers Cut Former Cyclone Tinsley

Posted:

The Indiana Pacers have waived former Iowa state star Jamaal Tinsley, ending an often strained relationship.

The Pacers announced the move Wednesday. A Pacers spokesman said the NBA will process the request Thursday, and if Tinsley clears waivers, he will become a free agent.

As a result, next week's grievance arbitration has been canceled.

Tinsley was owed $14.7 million over the next two years. The team did not release details of the resolution and says it will have no further comment.

Tinsley has been with Indiana since 2001-02, and was hampered by injuries and legal problems in recent years. The Pacers told him not to report to training camp last season, and did not allow him to play.

Tinsley has career averages of 10.4 points and 7.0 assists. Tinsley helped the Cyclones win Big 12 titles in 2000 and 2001.
