Report: Pacers trying to acquire point guard D.J. Augustin from Bobcats
Having traded last year’s starting point guard, Darren Collison, to the Dallas Mavericks, the Indiana Pacers are trying to acquire another veteran to team with George Hill, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Augustin has posted decent numbers since being selected ninth overall in the 2008 draft, averaging 14.4 points and 6.1 assists in 2010-11 and 11.1 and 6.4 last season.
Someone named Evan Massey from something called CenterStageSports.com claims that Tyler Hansbrough could be headed back to North Carolina, where he played his college ball, in exchange for Augustin.
UPDATE: Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer tweets the following:
I hear an Augustin-to-Indiana sign-and-trade is unlikely. More to come.—
