Who are the 3 guys on your radar that you would like to see the Pacers draft.
Lets have your top 3 if the Pacers stay at 17, and top 3 if they trade up anywhere into the lottery...and heck list who you want at 45...
Man I can not make up my mind on who I want the Pacers to draft. There are so many guys who would make good picks for us. Part of the reason I change my mind so much is because of watching these playoffs. It shows what we will need to compete.
Here is mine:
If we stay at 17:
- Thabo Sefolosha
He is a good defender, he not only has the skills to defend but he has the tools, quickness, length, the whole package. He has solid skills on offense, but he will need to improve them for the NBA, especially his shooting.
- Rajon Rando
His defense is simply awesome. Like Thabo, he has the tools with the skills. What I love about both these guys is their wingspans are like 7'2...that is freaking awesome. I questioned his abilty to run a team, but then I realized how Kentucky played at a slower pace, limiting what Rando can do. He does need to work on that shooting, but with that defense he could help us stop penatration which has been a problem for the Pacers for years.
- Quincy Douby
We could use a shooter like him. Man can this kid shoot or what? Not only that, he lead the Big East in scorng, one of the toughest conferences in America, and he was the focus of defenses. We are seeing how valueable guards like Douby are. The NBA is starting to turn to the point where size doesn't matter, it's how you use the player.
Honorable mention: Jordan Farmar, Serigo Rodriguez, Kyle Lowery, Shannon Brown, and Mariuce Ager.
If we move up anywhere in the top 10
- Randy Foye
I compare him to Gilbery Arenas. Foye has a great all around game. What more can I say about him?
- Adam Morrison
I actually see some of Reggie in Morrison. Morrison can just flat out score the ball. He is an awesome shooter no matter where he is on the court, or if he is catching and shooting or shooting off the dribble. The big reason why I have him on my radar is because he could change the culture in Indiana. I love Morrison's fire he shows during games.
- Brandon Roy
He would be the safest pick in the draft. I love how he can create with the ball in his hands. That is something we could really use. He is just a really good all around player though.
Honrable mention: Rodney Careny, Ronnie Brewer.
- Yotam Halperin
He is awesome on offense. He is known for his intangliables. I think he could end up being a nice role player for any team in the future.
- Bobby Jones
His defense is top notch. He will make a good role player in the NBA. He is a hard worker. This is a player I would have number one on my list. If he is avaliable at 45, we better take him. It may just be a second round pick but I think that BJ will be in the league for a long time.
- Hassan Adams
He could end up be a very good defender in the NBA. He has all the tools. He needs to improve his skills though, that's for sure.
Honorable Mention: Dee Brown, Relando Blackman, and James White.
There are no legit all stars but we will get a very nice player from this draft.
