    I dont remember the contract status of their other PGs besides Jennings, but they always seem to have a bunch of them on the roster. I’m guessing they’re hoping for more of Augustin with the Bulls and his final year with the Hornets, than his atrocious play for the Pacers. If he shoots the 3 the way he did this past season, that definitely adds something they’re missing, especially with Jennings on their roster

      Siva’s non-guaranteed, will need to make a decision on him before the 20th of this month. Bynum is in the last year of his deal, making $3M; won’t be hard to move, or simply cut him. Those two things considered and the fact that, once healthy, Dinwiddie can play chunks of time at SG, the PG situation will sort itself out.
