At the Midpoint: Jonny Flynn

With a second chance to come into the NBA, Flynn has shown some signs of wanting to be a positive piece of the Pacers, but he has to be a bigger piece moving forward. More inside.

Jonny Flynn had once been a starting point guard in the NBA.

From there, he became a trade piece and moved about the league before heading to Australia to continue his career.

With the Indiana Pacers offering a spot to Flynn on their NBA Summer League in Orlando, Florida, it is now up to the former Syracuse Orange guard to show what he can provide a professional team in the United States.

So far in Summer League, Flynn has competed in two of the team's three contests. In those games, he has not shown himself to be a scorer, but rather as a true point guard in the sense of unselfishness. He has been averaging three assists per game.

But with point guards like Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, and others in the league, Flynn has to improve his output just to be a backup, let alone a starter.

He has made only one of his seven attempts from the field in two matches, making one of three tries from long range and none of his four shots from inside in the arc.

Flynn has also failed to steal the ball even once while turning the ball over five times.

Overall, he appears to be willing to help his squad even if that means he does not get the accolades, something a true point guard especially is known for.

He has made attempts but he has to elevate his play immediately to truly make his presence felt.
