    There must be something our front office likes about Ben Hansbrough or something. He gets invited to just about everything.

    I honestly genuinely believe Tyler plays a huge role in that

    Seems like it's mostly as a favor to the Hansbrough family. I'd be shocked if he makes the team, but it's good for him to keep his face out there in case another team wants to take a look. He'll probably go to Europe or China.

    Is it a favor to an agent, maybe?

    Doesn't a player have to have high basketball skills and media expectations in order to be declared a bust?

    Oh for crying out loud the last few are just bodies to put on the floor. It's not going to be some nepotistic way of getting Ben onto an NBA team, he's just someone that can body up in camp.

    Sure. But it didn't have to be these particular guys, which is why I was speculating. Regardless, it was going to be someone who wouldn't make the team.

    I mean Ben Hansbrough will probably play hard and bust the **** out of George Hill and DJ Augustin. I think he's the perfect training camp guy. That's basically what Tyler is at this point.

    How is it some weird obsession, when the guy is Tyler's younger brother and a Notre Dame grad? I just don't see how it is weird. It seems like we are being a good, loyal franchise, like always. Taking care of a player we would like to see around for a while on a cheap deal. The kid doesn't have a chance to be on the team, but I can guarantee he brings it as a hopeless reserve. He will push the other guys and do his part. That is more of what we are looking for in that role than really trying to fill a roster spot with someone who realizes they aren't going to make the team and not give a full effort. I'm sure it probably helps the comraderie of training camp a bit too, since Tyler always seems like a little bit of a loner anyway.

    When it comes to training camp fodder does it really matter why they are brought in? At this point there are many players out there that hold the same skill set as Ben. But if they know him and more importantly his character, why not go this route.

    Lets say there is a better player out there, who has a chip on their shoulder. And want to prove themselves at all costs. And injures Roy.

    Or lets say this said better player is excited, living it up. Enjoying everything. Goes to club Rio to get the full Pacer experience. And is in the headlines.


    No it is better to go with the known character with such an insignificant position.

    I agree with this. I always assumed Ben or local guys filled out camp to help give them exposure. Why wouldn't you?

    It also creates more buzz for the Pacers to have Tyler's Notre Dame brother in for camp over some guy nobody knows that isn't making the squad anyway.

    He is called Luke Nevill. He is a 7'2", 260 lbs Center from Australia. He played college ball in the University of Utah and went undrafted. He played with the Utah Flash for a season and then he left the US to return to Australia. He played one season with the Melbourne Tigers and then he decided to try his luck in Europe. He signed with BC Triumph Lyubertsy in Russia and played there for a season. He returned to Australia and played for the Perth Wildcats in the last season.

    Most sources say that he is a good defensive presence and can block shots. That's what you ask from a training camp body.

    If you clicked the first link provided, you'd see that it starts Oct 2. Not like it's a super secret date or something.
