Beyond The Buzzer:
The Indiana Pacers have rescinded the ~$4.15 million qualifying offer to Tyler Hansbrough making him an unrestricted free agent, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
Since being drafted in 2009, Hansbrough has played a role off the bench for the Pacers, but wants to start, according to ESPN 1070. That will not be possible on Indiana as the team just agreed to terms on a multi-year deal with starting PF, David West, which may have contributed to the decision to rescind Hansbrough’s offer.
Hansbrough averaged 7 points and 4.6 rebounds in 16.9 minutes per game last season.

Indiana signed first-round draft pick Solomon Hill and free-agent guard Donald Sloan on Wednesday.
