The Pacers are, however, open to moving backups Tyler Hansbrough, D.J. Augustin and Gerald Green. I'm told they offered up the names of Hansbrough and Augustin when trying to pry J.J. Redick out of Orlando. But the Magic aren't interested in a move like that. Orlando might yet keep Redick, who wants to stay in Orlando, but only if the sharp-shooting backup settles for less than he might get on the open market this summer. Despite Redick's name being one of the most prominent in trade rumors, some executives are beginning to believe the Magic will not move him. ESPN.com

Midway through the fourth quarter of Friday’s game between the Pacers and the Raptors, Tyler Hansbrough got a little more physical than the rules should allow while battling for position under the basket with Jonas Valanciunas. Hansbrough literally throws Valanciunas to the ground near the end of the play, but the officials on the floor didn’t deem there to be enough contact to whistle him for even a personal foul, much less a flagrant for his actions.

Things weren't so comical by the fourth quarter, though. After three Pacers technical fouls, Garnett picked up a flagrant 2 for hitting Tyler Hansbrough in the face while flailing with his arms. The Celtics center said he was merely trying to knock the ball away. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he thought referee James Capers was trying to keep the game -- which was long out of reach -- under control. "I think he was thinking, 'I'm going to do him a favor,' because it was getting chippy," Rivers said. ESPN.com

Asked if Garnett apologized, Hansbrough said: "KG apologize? Are you from here?" Hansbrough, who scored 19 points, said his immediate concern was his history of concussions; he didn't notice whether Garnett had reached out. "I took a shot in the head," Hansbrough said. "I had to take care of myself. I wasn't really concerned about retaliating at the time. I was just making sure I was OK." ESPN.com

Thompson was attempting to pull a rebound away from Tyler Hansbrough in the fourth quarter, and in doing so he swung an elbow into the head of bystander Ben Hansbrough, a seldom-used Pacers reserve. "Psycho T" was unleashed, with Tyler Hansbrough immediately jumping into Thompson's face. Thompson, whose Canadian background we mention here for no particular reason, kept his cool and did not retaliate, so the fight stopped when referees interjected. USA Today

Hansbrough, an All-American at North Carolina, can't avoid having run-ins with former Duke players. Magic guard J.J. Redick joined fellow Blue Devil Mike Dunleavy in taking exception to Hansbrough's aggressiveness. Redick received a technical foul for attempting to push Hansbrough out the way after Redick was fouled by Pacers guard Paul George. Redick's push turned out to be more of a nudge; Hansbrough barely moved. "Nah, I'm not going to budge on that," Hansbrough said. "I didn't even foul him. He was coming at me. We got a little tangled up. I don't even know how it really happened." Indianapolis Star

Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough is a masked man again thanks to former teammate Mike Dunleavy's elbows. Hansbrough suffered a broken nose and facial bone from the hard foul Dunleavy delivered with his elbows in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game in Milwaukee. Hansbrough and Dunleavy, who were teammates for two seasons, were later given technicals when they were talking about the play during a free throw attempt. When asked if he's heard from Dunleavy, Hansbrough, said, "No, I don't need an apology." Indianapolis Star
