Its just an insider post about team needs. It may help give an idea about which teams draft who.

Thanks. :)

Here is the part about the Pacers.


Projected first-round pick: 17th

Team needs: A little of everything

Analysis: It's tough to project exactly what the Pacers will be targeting in the draft because it's unlikely they'll go into next season with this same roster. Changes are very likely.

Peja Stojakovic is an unrestricted free agent, and Fred Jones is a restricted free agent. Jermaine O'Neal could be on the trading block. Jamaal Tinsley has been a disappointment, and Stephen Jackson has worn on the nerves of some teammates. The bright spot right now is rookie Danny Granger, who looks to be a staple on this team for a long time.

With all that said, look for the Pacers to find the best player they can -- maybe a backcourt player who can provide some athleticism and leadership. Maybe someone like Collins or Maurice Ager would be a fit.

Thanks. Ager would likely be available at the 17th pick......but teams that need defensive PGs will likely be picked before we have a chance at him.

I hate being at the 17th pick in this year's draft....we are at the gateway of "No-Man's" land where the cr@p draft players are likely to fall.

I think Ager is number 4 on my wish list after Roy, Carney and Hilton Armstrong

I've never been that impressed with Ager at all. Not an MSU fan, but I've seen 5 or 6 games and he never blew me away with his NBA potential.
