Give me Marcus Smart all day for us
Give me Marcus Smart all day for us
I like Michael Carter-Williams a lot right now(I love this kids upside could be a star depending on how he progresses easily the best passer in the draft. He just needs more reps and work some kinks out) same with BJ Young. They are different type of players but both would really fill a need on this Pacer team.
Jamaal Franklin was the best player on the court vs UCLA the other night. Don't like his game though just something about him I don't like cant put my finger on it probably the shot selection. I do like how he hits the glass though but our wings already do that really well.
I am anxious to see how Tony Mitchell has improved about to watch my first North Texas game of the year.
I'm also very intrigued by Rudy Gobert from France. Needs to get stronger, but he has some pretty sick length and athleticism for a 7'1" center and the defensive potential is outstanding.
no clue who the hell he is but apparently the Pacers and a few other teams have been scouting this D3 kid AJ Matthews in person
They should take a look at Trey Burke and Gary Harris. They should be available if we have a late first round draft pick. They can both be stars in the NBA
I am so disappointed in Tony Mitchell loved the kid last year would of drafted him in the top 10 easy. With the new offense and coach he just doesn't seem the same and isnt playing as smart as he did last year. Really puzzling gives me red flags but I would take a flyer on him still.
Also watching UCLA is why I hate AAU that is the style they play its really frustrating. I wish AAU was outlawed it's killing the game I know it wont happen but it really is killing the game.
Anyone have a request for a mix??? I have decided I will do a mix for several players like I did after we drafted OJ. Just give me a request and will do one if the majority agrees.
I would like Tony Mitchell...
Last year he shot 60% from 2pt range and 47% from 3. With Danny's health questionable the Pacers would do well to have a
Replacement in mind. Players that shoot with that percentage are rare. If he could take that to the NBA it sure helps Roys game.
The Pacers absolutely need more offense. If his defense is average with all the other good defenders the Pacers have he woul be a good addition.
I am curious to see what he does as the season progresses.
AJ Matthews would be very interesting for the Pacers. I suspect he would rebound very well for the Pacers.
Oladipo would be a good second round player to take if he came out this year. Physically talented and agressive going to the hoop.
Draftexpress has a really good write up and video evaluation. He does all the things the Pacers do not do well.
Spaces the floor, moves constantly, shoots extremely well, and has a high bball IQ. He would be a fine addition.
With Grangers questionable health he would definitely help the team concept. Average defender. That can be masked.
Also watching Smart reminds me so much of watching Rondo at UK. Kid does everything on the floor and smart as they come doesn't play like a freshmen. Love how he looks for the contact real physical player he wears his opponents down. His talents would be wasted in our system. He needs freedom at the next level. However he would fit in our power post type of game he is solid in the post. He and Nash are both great post players for Ok St.
EDIT: Also way to early to call anyone a lock for a spot he could blow his knee out tomorrow and drop a bit. Really anything can happen lots of ball left to play before the season is over lots of stock will change from now and draft night.
I could get on board with LeBryan Nash his versatility would really make our 2nd unit better. I would probably plug him in as the backup 4 from day one. I think he can play both the 3/4 at the NBA level but he really intrigues me as a face up 4. His handle would give us so many options offensively I really love his power post game. He would fit what we do.
UCLA reminds me of UCONN last season. Too much blue chip talent with no coach to control it.
Shabazz might float through this season without ever showing what he can really do.
In his last game McDermott was 4-7 from 2 and 6-8 from 3 with 4-5 free thows for 30 points and 6 rebounds.
Shooting 55% from 2 and 52% from 3 for the year.
