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

    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.

    Yeah I hope they keep Ben and I don't really care what happens to OJ and Pendergraph.

    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 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Tom and Dick Van Arsdale, twins whose careers stretched from 1965 to '77, and Brent and Mark Price with Washington in 1995-96.

    I wish Ahearn had gotten more of a shot. He was every bit as effective as Gerald Green was in the DLeague last year, and while his skillset isn't going to translate as well as Green's, I think he's a guy who can contribute offensively at an NBA level. Looks like he's stuck as that ultimate AAAA type player. It's probably about time for him to start considering making some bigger money in Europe.


    Regardless, as a Gerald Green fan, it's nice to be able to open a thread like this and not have to worry about seeing his name

    A Gerald Green fan who now finds himself rooting for the Suns.

    He was shooting some midrange jumpers pregame on Saturday night... looked OK.

    The preseason action seems clearly like a nod towards: "you guys are going to get a lot of grind during the season... let's keep some powder dry and see what we have with Pendy, Stephenson, etc"

    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.

    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.

    To be fair.....is it official yet that Ben HAS MADE the team?

    I am guessing the Simons......he's owed a guaranteed $1.875 mil this year.

    Why pay him to leave when he could be paid $1.875 million to pump up the Team during the pre-game announcement?
