  1. Because production on the court in college doesn't always lead to success in the NBA. When skill sets are similar you go with the guy that is younger with higher upside.
  2. Taller, more athletic, longer wingspan, younger, and has a higher upside.
  3. I think it was confusing wording but I would venture to say he is referencing the rumor that Deland took the ND job because Allen wouldn't fire Hiller which is completely stupid.
  4. And now they've gotten themselves to only 12.5 games out of 1st in the NL central and 8.5 from the wild card lol
  5. The thing with Duren is that his offensive game is very one dimensional. He's an athletic lob threat and he's not a great FT shooter. Could he develop? Possibly, but I would be taking someone that has a chance to be something more than that with pick 6 if I'm the Pacers.
  6. It is but he just had a couple bad games. He's very skilled for his size.
  7. I'm not sure he slipped my mind but he'd be a good high upside option too.
  8. McCullum is the favorite for Evansville at this point.
  9. I think he very well might. I could also see Wesley being very similar to Ivey and possibly better long term too.
  10. Here are some names (in no order) that I wouldn't mind the Pacers to take a serious look at with their second pick whether that's at 31 or they trade back into the first. 1. Blake Wesley 2. Bryce McGowens 3. Leonard Miller 4. Caleb Houstan 5. Nikola Jovic
  11. I'll be curious to see how they draft. Do they draft a couple of higher upside guys that are younger or do they draft a combination of high a upside guy and a safer more NBA ready guy similar to last year with Duarte and Jackson. There are some guys in the 20-31 range that the Pacers could take a swing on with some high upside but they were freshman this year.
  12. It's possible. I've seen him as high as 25 in mocks but I've also seen him going undrafted. He has a very large range in which he could go.
  13. They are looking at Ayton because he is young and been a part of playoff success while playing at a high level. They could possibly land him in a sign and trade sending them Myles Turner since there's been talk Ayton wants out of Pheonix. I don't think they'll be drafting Duren. He is big and talented but that's a bit of a reach since most mock drafts have him going around 10 or 12.
  14. Pacers will be fine. They could get a couple more picks or other players for Brogdon and Turner depending on what they want in return. The Pacers also have Picks 31 and 58. They could likely package those and something else to move into the first round again like they did last year. The Pacers also likely won't have more than 2 or 3 rookies so that Cleveland pick moving to next year in a deeper draft isn't the worst thing. They have plenty of flexibility.
  15. Stop. No chance that happens. He's not even a top 50 draft prospect.
  16. He's going to be a QB. He's a top 300 recruit. QB's ranked that high don't move positions.
  17. TJD isn't getting a first round promise.
  18. I honestly want Ivey or Murray at 6 but I would be fine with Mathurin as he has a good size and athleticism with some scoring/shooting ability.
  19. Murray fills a need the Pacers have had for a while. A 3/4 that can score the ball in a variety of ways. Warren filled that role for a short time but other than that it has been a struggle since the PG and Danny Granger days.
  20. I have a gut feeling the Pacers are going to end up with either Ivey, Murray, or Mathurin if they stay at 6. I'd be happy with any of those three. Sharpe will get taken in the top 5 due to his high upside. Some team will take that risk. Same with Chet. Smith and Banchero are both very unlikely to fall.
  21. With the NBA draft lottery taking place tonight I'm fully expecting the Pacers to end up with either pick 7, 8, or 9.
  22. Dennis isn't committing to IU so it's not a factor. IF TJD leaves they'll find someone if they want. That said I still think he'll be back.
  23. Yeah whoever made that graphic needs some help
  24. Oh heavens no. That’s not happening. Chris Hollender is most likely going to be the guy.
