How Jacque Vaughn could help the Pacers find offensive rhythm

Before Jacque Vaughn led an injury-ravaged Nets team to an impressive 5-3 record in the Orlando bubble, and before Steve Nash was hired over him as head coach without any prior experience, the 45-year-old former player was at the helm of a budding Orlando Magic team, featuring a heavier, less refined version of Victor Oladipo. Tasked with making sense of an ill-fitting core full of unbridled athleticism but short on shooting, the Magic got outscored by 6.9 points per 100 possessions in the 765 minutes that Elfrid Payton and Oladipo were on the floor together prior to when Vaughn was dismissed in the wake of a listless 10-game losing streak.
