Indiana Pacers: The Pacers quietly have been exploring ways of rebuilding their team this summer without tearing things apart. In part that's because they are bullish on four young players on their roster.

Danny Granger was the steal of the draft last year and he continued to show maturity and poise beyond his years at Orlando. Granger didn't go out to dominate, but still averaged 17.3 points and 5.0 boards for the Pacers. His shot wasn't really falling in Orlando, but his play still gave the Pacers reason to be hopeful that he'll be a major contributor to the team next year.

Big man David Harrison continued to show improvement. He played only two games but was dominant when he was on the floor.

This year's rookies were more of a mixed bag. Shawne Williams played just one game and struggled shooting the ball. Second-round pick James White had an excellent summer league and drew very positive reviews from several scouts. His defense and poise really stood out, according to scouts, and he shot the ball quite well.
