Thread: Pacers Select Ike Anigbogu

    The Pacers drafted both Anigbogu and Sumner who have health issues, but NOT OG!?!? SMH Not drafting OG is going to come back and bite the Pacers in the azz.

    This draft was stacked through most of the second with what might normally be first round (albeit late) talent. I'm excited to get Ike. Great value at #47.
    Yes, and it turned out to be not even close to being true

    I like this pick better than our first rounder

    If he stays healthy, I'd be willing to bet that he turns out to be a better player. Nicely done Pacers.

    Has injury issues and he's a big guy. Don't like the pick at all.
    First time in a long time, I've been happy with the team that was constructed, and now they struggle. I blame the coach.

    His body is Alonzo Mourning (same height, same wingspan, same strength), if he can develop some offensive skills and become a positive defensive player... Very happy with this pick. As we approached 18, I wanted OG then DJ Wilson and then Ike as the third option so I am very happy he fell all the way to 47. Kind of unbelievable really. Very young, too.

    His videos excited me for his apparent abilities yet made me cringe knowing he has knee issues and he kept leaping up only to repeatedly land on one leg. Sooner or later I worry that knee might give out.

    Yeah, I think health is going to be the key for him. If he stays healthy he will become a very good player.

    Pacers drafted 2 injury riddled players in the 2nd round. smh

    One common thing I've noticed with the Pacers is they tend to pick guaranteed contributors with first rounders then don't mind rolling the dice in the second round. I'm sure they look at the contracts of first vs second rounders and don't want to chance the extra guaranteed money on potential flops.

    I don't necessarily like it because we tend to get fewer home runs outside of the lottery but just about every Pacers first round pick gets to a second contract in the NBA which statistically speaking is pretty impressive. I'm not happy we didn't take OG but I can accept it because it's consistent with what they've always done.

    Really wonder if the Pacers had known he'd fall to 47 if we would have went a different direction with the 18th

    I really like this pick. Seems to be the same player as the Kentucky guy Adebayo that went #14. Miami got this player in the lottery, and we got him in the middle of round 2.

    Here is the way I see it, many PD posters were ok with taking a risk on OG with injury issues so taking a chance on two players in the second round that would have gone higher had it not been for injuries is a low risk/ high reward move. It's what we did with Whit (though he went un-drafted eventhough projected late first early second pick) Shayne never did turn out (though doing well overseas), the Pacers weren't out much.

    Both pick-ups were a good move. See how they do in summer league and how our roster plays out and go from there.

    I don't think Sumner will play in Summer League. He tore his ACL in January so unless he's superhuman, he's still rehabbing his knee.

    Then I can see this as a Mad Ants pick.

    This pick is amazing. Makes it all the harder to swallow that we passed up on OG at #18. Once OG got healthy, could you imagine this combo? It even has such a nice ring to it: "OG and Ike"..."Anunoby and Anigbogu"

    That's missed opportunity for branding right there, and reclaiming our identity from the late 90s. OG and Ike are designed to literally eat frontcourts of the future. In 7 years, we are going to see both of them gracing 1st Team All-Defense as we mourn the riddled corpse of TJ Leaf.

    Pick 18 vs 47 and 52... different levels of risk.

    I think Anigbogu and Sumner are heading straight to the Ants. Leaf will probably spend some time there as well, but he'll get a shot to be in the rotation.

    Did people even watch OG last year?? I think people here love him cause of the national media talking up his defense. But last year he did not play well. His defense wasn't that good, his effort was awful, and he couldn't shoot. He's going to be a Solomon Hill and I'm glad we didn't pick him.

    Nothing against Ike, but he fell this low for a reason. He seems to be an athlete, but not really a basketball player. He just screams "He's two years away from being two years away." IIRC, Tbird said he was a smart guy and that will speed things up hopefully, but I don't see him making any kind of positive contribution until he qualifies for a RFA. Nice pick for a 2nd rounder, but never understood why he was so high up in the mocks.

    I'm sort of the same mind. I could be wrong, hope I am. If he surprises me, more power to him.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    From everything that I am reading about Ike.....he can be all that we hope that he can become....with the HUGE CAVEAT that he is pointed in the right direction and MOST IMPORTANTLY developed over the next 3+ seasons.

    That means that we can't expect him to contribute immediately....and that he must be allowed to make mistakes. The problem is that we have a poor track record for developing and actually using our 2nd round picks with Lance being the only Player in recent memory that has develped into something beyond a roster spot.

    I pray that KP doesn't believe in the notion of "learning by sitting at the end of the bench" like Bird does and REALLY hope that he sends Ike and Sumner to the DLeague to develop the heck out of them over the next season.

    Right now....he's a mound of clay that can be shaped into something more. Clearly a project.....I just hope that the FO has the patience to let him develop over the next 2+ seasons and REALLY invest time into him and develop him.

    as a matter of fact, i believe i said that about the pg/lance draft. think it was said about the myles/joe young draft too (though nobody will admit it now).
    Pretty sure it was the Miles Plumlee and Orlando Johnson draft.

    Ooh, I remember that. I like Orlando, but he's out of the league, while Miles just got traded for Dwight Howard. So yeah, you'd think Pacers should get some benefit of the doubt.
