Gerald Green

The experiment of having swingman Gerald Green be the primary scoring option off the bench has ended.

How long things remain that way will be determined by when Green gets out of his seasonlong funk.

Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel has benched Green and replaced him in the rotation with rookie Orlando Johnson.

“Just trying something different with him and hopefully trigger some improvement in his shooting,” Vogel said. “We try different things on the court, and when it’s not working, we take a step back, get him out of the rotation for a few games, get extra shots and hopefully it changes his rhythm and flow.”
