The Pacers have been searching for their ideal point guard combo for years.
For awhile, they settled on Darren Collison, with George Hill backing him up.
Obviously, Hill took the job and Collison left town.
So the Pacers took a flier on D.J. Augustin in the hopes that he could re-discover the game that led him to be a lottery pick.
Overall, Augustin didn't have a terrible year but he really didn't add anything to this team.
He really only had a few good performances in the playoffs and none against the Miami Heat.
The Pacers are happy with their point guard play when Hill is in the game, but they need to find a better backup.
They could opt for a combo guard with some size, a shoot-first scorer or a pass-first option.
The good news is that they have some options. There are a few solid options in free agency—such as Will Bynum, Jarrett Jack and Earl Watson amongst them.
There are also a ton of solid point guards in this year's draft, although the Pacers have other needs to worry about.
At the very least, the Pacers should be able to upgrade this spot.
