The Indiana Pacers, led by Rick Fuson, its chief operations officer, want the All-Star Game.

A league official confirmed Saturday that the Indianapolis delegation is in Toronto to observe how that city is operating the many events with the NBA. The official also said that 2018 is the earliest year for which the Pacers could make a bid. Fuson said it’s unclear if the Pacers will bid for 2018 or for a subsequent year. What is clear is that several people with knowledge of the Pacers’ trip this weekend believe the team will submit a bid in the next few months.

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
