Austin Croshere Waived from Indiana Pacers

Posted by Pacers Boy On October - 23 - 2008

Well, it was fun while it lasted Austin. The Indiana Pacers announced that Austin Croshere and Josh Davis have been waived. Why they were waived right before¬†tonight’s preseason game is unknown, but maybe Jim O’Brien wants to focus on the 14 players we will have for this last game of the preseason.

Austin didn’t make a lot of shots the first several games this preseason, but seemed to warm up the past couple of games. He has always been a fan favorite, has a great attitude, and would be a good fellow leader for our new team. Sure, he’s old in NBA years and maybe not what he once used to be as a player, but if we could have kept him for a minimum contract it would have been a no-brainer. Thanks to the un-tradeable Jamaal Tinsley, we had to get rid of two players and Austin and Josh paid the price.

“This was an extremely difficult decision to waive Austin,” said General Manager David Morway. “Austin’s a terrific professional and has represented this franchise extremely well and we appreciate his passion, dedication and commitment to the Pacers over the years.”

Austin mentioned wanting to work with the Pacers organization in some kind of position after he retires, so maybe we’ll see him around. Or if we could just trade Tinsley, he could come back on the court. Whatever the case, here’s to AC and for all the years he gave the Indiana Pacers.
