I didn't see this until today: http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/summer_central_2006.html
Anyway, what are your thoughts on the individuals who played for our summer league? Do you want them on this team?
Danny and Harrison both played very well. Neither consistently dominated in terms of numbers, but then they didn't spend a ton of time on the court, either. Both looked solid and played well, and both displayed some new moves we haven't seen before (including an improved post game from Hulk, and an emerging one from Danny).
It's too soon to call White the steal of the draft, but I think we've got a keeper here. Despite what the Orlando guys said, I really everything I saw. Bird and Carlisle talked about what a competitor he was, and we saw it today. He played solid D all week, and his offense wasn't nearly as raw as it was made out to be. Definitely a keeper, and he's probably ready for some backup minutes this year.
Williams was harder to tell. He did some nice things around the basket, but didn't put up huge numbers. I'd like to see him play more before I have a hard and fast opinion, but I think he's got the potential to be a very good player. He's not a 4 yet, even though we played him there, but with some extra time in the weight room it could happen. For now, he's best as a three. I'd like us to pick up another 3 if we trade Jack, but I'd like to see what he could do against real NBA players at a position he's actually ready for.
The Free Agents
This is what will get a lot of attention in this thread, I'm sure. Snap played very well (24 points in today's win), and Coppenrath wasn't nearly the stiff I took him for. Is there anybody else that you guys think could make the team?
