Keep an eye on this building, Mad Ants fans

I hate to stoke the flames of rumors, but since neither the Indiana Pacers nor the Mad Ants will comment at all about their plans beyond this season, I'm left to pass along interesting nuggets like this.

The Pacers have acquired the naming rights to the fieldhouse in Westfield’s Grand Park youth athletic complex, which will be known as Pacers Athletic Center. It houses eight indoor courts and will play host to eight upcoming U.S. Jr. NBA Regional Championships.

The Pacers' lease with Memorial Coliseum for the Mad Ants to play there expires after this season and, of course, with the downtown arena idea shelved, there is speculation they could look to move closer to Indianapolis. This could be a possible site. Maybe. Just an idea.
