George Hill is set to return to the Indiana Pacers pretty soon, and Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star brought up an idea that Hill could be the starting point guard instead of Darren Collison. Indiana’s coach Frank Vogel even thinks he’s “that good.”
“Quite honestly as good as [Darren Collison] and Paul George have been playing, George is going to be a guy who continues to push for those starting jobs,” head coach Frank Vogel told Wells. “He’s that good of a player and we’re looking forward to him getting back.”
As far as Wells’ thoughts on the matter, he wrote that it would be better for Collison to come off the bench since him and Tyler Hansbrough make a solid combo together.
Teaming Collison and Tyler Hansbrough together in the second unit will be a positive for Hansbrough because they’re familiar with each other and it should help him get out of his season-long shooting funk (38 percent shooting). Collison and Hansbrough were effective in running the pick-and-roll together last season.
Hill is set to return some time in the next couple of days.
Who would you rather have as the starting point guard: Hill or DC?
