    Kofi -

    Why all the sudden did you change your mind on EG? What has changed for you to think he would be a good fit here?

    Just curious...
    Draft position. Beforehand we were picking around #8, now we're at #11, which I think is good value for Gordon.

    Just for the record, if we wind up getting any one of Gordon, Love, or Westbrook at #11, I'll be a very happy boy.
    I'd be intrigued by any of those pics.

    Most all of the lottery picks are just 19 and 20 years old. You could strike gold right away or wind up with fools gold. I think all of them are intriguing in some ways.

    But who do we take if we get the 3rd pick? Bruno says Bird is interested in a point guard or a power player. That would probably be Brook Lopez, or Bayless
    At #3, I'd probably see if anybody in the top 8 wanted to trade up, and what they'd offer.
    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.

    If we get the 3rd I would want Bayless.

    EJ at #11 is great value for him, but I don't see him falling to us, no way no how. That would make my year. I'd prefer Mayo though...
    Roy Hibbert.... It's the POWER!!!

    I am good with that.

    I don't get why NJ would take another PG but sure, I'll take Westbrook.

    I'd be thrilled if Augustin went top-10. That way I wouldn't have to worry about Larry picking him.

    nbadraft.net has Gordon going #12 now. That would be interesting when the Pacers make a selection

    The longer I've observed this stuff, the more holes I've seen people poke in nbadraft.net. I don't take them seriously anymore, and I would recommend anyone who does to be cautious.

    I don't necessarily take them seriously, but they do tend to get more accurate as the draft gets closer. Not saying that's saying much either, but he was slotted at #5 early and now is at #11. So it's definitely intriguing.

    Also noticed they don't have Speights being drafted till next year so... haha

    All the mocks mess up, though. Just looking at it right now, it seems like they were pretty solid last year.

    All I'm saying is that any one of Love/Westbrook/Gordon would be just fine for me at #11. And odds are good one of them falls to us. There's not a mock out there that has all of them gone at #11.

    Sometimes I think I'd love to have Augustin on our team. A high character guy who has done nothing but try his best all the time.

    And then I think about Mateen Cleaves too.....


    I'd still take my chances on Augustin if Westbrook or Gordon aren't there.

    Me too, this would be great if one of these 3 fall, and Love intrigues me. So that's 4 guys who one of them could be there. I still think Westbrook and Gordon will shoot up in the top 7 when they start doing workouts. Westbrook is a freak athletically and should have some jaws dropping, which sucks because at 11 he could be a great pick. The kid would instantly become the Pacers best perimeter defender.
