T.J. Ford and Jarrett Jack will battle to be named the starting point guard of the Pacers in training camp, according to Indianapolis Star.

"I think T.J. and Jarrett both have the qualities of a starter," Coach Jim O'Brien said. "They're both going to play huge minutes. Another thing is, Jarrett brings toughness and energy. He's not limited to the point guard spot. He can also play two-guard."

Indiana acquired both players in trades this summer, with Ford coming from Toronto and Jack from Portland.

I think Ford will be our starting PG and Jack off the bench. I think Jack will also get some time at the SG position. I would love to see a lineup of:

Ford
Rush
Dunleavy
Granger
Murphy

It probably wouldnt be a starting lineup, but in some point of the game

Jarrett CAN'T play 2 guard, but ok

he can defend it better than most of the players on the roster tho

I'm glad this is open competition. I don't think either one is clearly better than the other.

I'm going to save this one for later.

They're different kinds of players, but TJ is clearly better than Jack as a pure PG.

I don't think it was closed when I posted in it.

Althoug, I had no idea we could do this.
