    Not surprising. Funny how there's a thread about giving Ben a chance and one about how bad Augustin's issues

    I hope it works, but I won't be surprised if it doesn't.

    Interesting...

    A change was definitely needed at the backup PG spot.

    Augustin should get an atlas for Christmas and use the holidays to make himself familiar with basketball teams in southern Europe.

    Good luck Ben, can't get any worse, can it?

    This isn't a big surprise and it was only a matter of time. If Hansbrough doesn't get the job done, they need to shop for a replacement at the trade deadline..... ...

    Now, take the lesser Hansbrough out of the lineup and we may have something.

    I don't even know if that is a joke.

    Between him and Tyler that is about $7 million in cap relief. Maybe we can find ourselves a slightly overpriced back-up PF.

    I'm not mad about it, it just kinda sucks for D.J. This will either inspire him to step his game up or it could cost him his NBA career... Weird how close he and T.J. Ford are and how similarly their situations have panned out here. D.J. has went through it a lot faster though obviously.

    On a side note, 2K13 needs to add Ben to the game.

    I don't expect much from Ben, but Augustin has been beyond horrible so I doubt it can be much worse. I will probably never understand what is going on with Augustin, he's better than he's shown. Plus he's on a 1 year contract, so I just don't understand. I have seen Frank very frustrated a lot by Augustin's play.

    More reason to have confidence in the Pacers braintrust, amirite? What an offseason haul!

    Thanks for the info. I'm glad that Vogel made the change. It was kinda needed.

    It sucks for DJ, though. Especially, since he wasn't all that bad in his last outting.

    Let's hope it is all for the best. Good luck, Ben

    keep in mind though, they may just play Ben Hansbrough as back up for one game then put D.J. back in too see if he is motivated, IU did it in football to their running back

    He played well with the Bobcats. he was signed for 1 year to be a backup point guard. Not a huge screw-up at all. Some moves don't work out.

    He doesn't fit this backup unit. At all. He never did.

    The bench was designed for George Hill to run point. Augustin does not even come close to complimenting the talents of the bench. This was a bad move from the get-go, as was thinking Gerald Green could be relied upon for anything.

    But I'm sure everyone will keep rationalizing what this team is doing this year, for some reason.

    The fact that we are turning to Ben Hansbrough for meaningful minutes is really distressing.

    The fact that it is hard to argue is much, much worse.

    I have little hope that Ben will do a whole lot but in all honesty I think we just needed a breath of fresh air on that bench and hopefully Ben can if nothing else come in and give us a spark.

    Benched for Ben Hansbrough. In the words of Ryan Grigson, "Augustin is a leper."

    Weird timing considering DJ's coming off his best game so far, but I'm still excited to see someone else given a shot.
