    Pacers Sign Williams And White
    6th July, 2006 - 4:35 pm
    Press Release - The Indiana Pacers announced Thursday the signing of first-round draft pick Shawne Williams, and James White, acquired in a draft-day trade, to contracts. Per club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

    Williams, a 6-9, 225-pound forward from the University of Memphis, was the teamís No. 1 pick (17th overall) in the 2006 NBA Draft. He averaged 13.2 points per game for the Tigers in his freshman season before making himself eligible for the draft.

    White is a 6-7, 200-pound swingman from the University of Cincinnati. He was chosen by the Portland Trail Blazers as the first pick of the second round (31st overall) of the 2006 Draft. He was then acquired by the Pacers in exchange for their 2006 second-round pick (45th overall) and two future second-round picks. In three seasons with the Bearcats, he averaged 11.7 ppg, including a 16.3 scoring average his senior year.
    I was ready for Josh Smith to go to Indiana, but he went to the NBA. I am ready for him to come to Indiana once again.

    Not surprising, but nice that it's official.

    Now Will can take off his tin hat and maybe I won't have to call Burlington Sat. morning.

    So, our roster as it currently stands:

    C - Foster/Hulk
    PF - JO/Williams
    SF - Danny/Flight
    SG - Jack/Quis
    PG - AJ/Tins/Runi

    11 spots filled, and we still have the full MLE, LLE, and TE.

    This isn't a surprise but, it is nice to know that it was smooth signing them. The last thing we need is our draft picks giving us a hard time.

    I'm glad to see the good news - and it is news. I mean, it was a foregone conclusion the Pacers were going to lose in the playoffs too, but there were still a few posts about it.

    How does this work? I'm just curious. Do the Pacers have certain rights that allow them to sign a draft for a certain number of years, at a certain price range? What rights do the players have at this stage? Can they say no? Can they ask for more money, etc? Excuse my ignorance. Please enlighten me.

    Not really but they can pull a Kobe Bryant and refuse to play where they get drafted and you have to trade them.

    I'm really curious to see how long we locked James White up for. The typical rules of the CBA don't apply to him, as I understand it, so in theory we could have locked him up for 5 years at the minimum

    That's an extreme example, but you catch my drift.

    The ideal thing is to get at least a 3-year deal, so you have Bird rights.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
