    Looks like Ben survived the first round of cuts. I would be ok if they kept 15 (what difference does it make).

    Doesn't keeping 1 space open on the roster allow us to make "2 for 1" trades without having the need to waive a guaranteed contract?

    Even if Ben had a guaranteed minimum contract...that would still be guaranteed $$$ being paid...while also taking on that extra Player in any such trade.

    The only reason that I can see to keep Ben is if Vogel doesn't think that Lance can be that "3rd" guy running the point if either GH/DJ gets injured.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I took Ben not playing the last 2 games to mean he was on his way out too. Or maybe Vogel was just done deciding on the roster and wanted to get on to deciding on the rotations and roles of the guys they are keeping. If so then I'd assume Ben's staying, which is fine by me. I really liked Ben's game at ND, he's got a knack for making big plays that goes beyond his overall talent level.

    we have not witnessed Orlando Johnson in full. The man needs to adjust, he still could be a steal.

    Yeah, Orlando looks raw, but I think we should give him some time to develop and I think that's what we will do. He's got a scorer's mentality and if he sits and learns things from watching he could become the steal in the draft we hoped for.

    Ben H was pretty consistent in his few games. While lance was all over the place. I say they keep him as an insurance policy.

    Maybe they plan on using Ben as a hostage to get Tyler to step it up?

    I'll admit I was one that doubted Ben and thought he was just another body to fill space in training camp. But I'd gladly eat crow when one of our players proves me wrong. Attaboy Ben!

    No good reason to stop at 3, keep cutting FO.

    Official that he has made it further than the other 3, and combining that with the idea that there is no need for the Pacers to cut another body, then all signs point to yes in my book.

    I think it's very likely that if we make a trade this year Lance ends up as filler so Ben is probably 3rd PG insurance.

    How many times in history have two brothers been on the same NBA team?
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    Off the top of my head, the VanArsdale brothers were on the same team. That was just for a short (almost honorary, you might say) time as I remember.

    Edit: Oops, I see now that someone beat me to it.

    It could just be that they are keeping Ben around until Hill can play.

    Saying that, I would be happy with him as the 15th guy.

    This is what I think's happening. Far as keeping him once Hill's 100%, whatever, couldn't care less what they do with the last roster spot. It's our MO to not have a completely full roster though so I'd be surprised if we have one by game 1.

    Well... That has been the MO under Bird. But I am hoping this continues under Walsh. But, of the remaining contracts, isn't Ben's the only one that is not guaranteed at this time?

    If we were going to keep a 3rd PG on the team I wish it was Chris Kramer. I know he has already signed with a European League team, but if the Pacers knew they would need a 3rd pg they should have reached out to him earlier. He has a vastly superior summer league to Hansbrough, is much better of defense and just as smart.
