I would love to see Earl Clark paired up with Granger but a lot of mocks has Indy taking Blair. I personally would hate to see Blair in a Pacers uniform cuz he doesn't fit with their fast-paced offense. I'm hoping the Nets take him.
Brandon Jennings would also be a dream pick. Then the Pacers could trade Ford for Tyson Chandler and re-sign Jack.
maybe trade up to get a great guard like Evans-Holiday-Jennings
would the hornets trade chandler for ford if they have paul? and i think ford an be an all star talent pg anyways
The Chandler-Ford trade was goin 2 go down at the deadline but the Pacers were concerned about Chandler's injuries. The Hornets are looking for someone to back Paul up and it works because Ford is already backing up Jack
I have a feeling that the Pacers really like Austin Daye.
thats pretty ironic that the pacers were worried about chandlers injuries instead of the hornets being worried about a point guard who has had multiple spinal injuries
I think the smartest pick would dejuan blair or jennings if he's available, they desperately need a physical offensive post presence, and outside of griffin, jordan hill, and thabeet, blair has the best chance to be a good nba post player
Pacers are my 2nd favorite team. I loved them when they had Miller, Artest , and Jermaine O'Neal. Now it seems like they are a shadow of their former selves. They need a SG, a more consistent PG, and a defensive athletic big man plus overall better team defense. I am not totally pleased with the Larry Bird era. I think there are going to make a couple of trades this off-season/season. I hope they dont get Daye, he is way too weak for the NBA, he is a tall/lanky shooter with questionable defense. That being said, I am not totally sure who they should pick, they could go in a few different ways. I dont think there will be a good defensive big man left so I think they should get an athletic SG who can play some D. Maybe Henderson would work or Chase Budinger if they wanted a shooter. Also for a sleeper pick, I think Terrence Williams would fit their system well, plus I think he is an underrated prospect.
PG - Jeff Teague
I think tyreke slips to the pacers. They will use tyreke at the two gaurd where I believe is the best positions for him.
No way in hell Evans drops to 13. Tyreke won't make it past #8 I promise you.
He's from Indiana and they need a PG.
If Teague is still on the board I think the Pacers will take him but I think Milwaukee is really interested in him. If Indiana does take him I think it would be the wrong move. I think Teague has a lot to learn about decision making and he has a wild game plus I dont think he would be better this year than Jack or Ford. He has great upside but I dont know if he will ever reach his full potential
They should draft Eric Maynor or Jrue Holiday.
DeJuan Blair would be a better pick than Earl Clark, who reminds me a lot of ex-Pacer Shawne Williams.
They will not take a swingman because of how well Brandon Rush played late in the season, and don't forget Mike Dunleavy coming back from the dead as well..I see them taking either a pg or a Blair..I think Blair gives them added toughness that they lack, along with low post scoring, and will be a nice complement to Troy Murphy
Why not? I'm a Bulls fan and a hometown PG is working out pretty good for us.
