    Default Magnum Rolle

    Other than him having a great name, let's talk about what he can bring to the team.

    Hopefully we sign him.

    From the couple of videos I've seen, he has a little bit of a mid-range game, and he can get up to dunk and swat shots. Looks like the type of player we've been needing at the PF position.

    Sounds like with a little more muscle he can easily play center too... but then again he's probably already stronger than Solo (not hard to do)...

    Nah, listening to his workout video, this guy actually wants to go to the weight room and gain strength... (Pointing back to when Solo got suspended and then benched for skipping weight lifting... and who can forget the countless times he was pushed out of the post by guards?... also if he has any basketball IQ and doesn't run around like a chicken w/ his head cut off he beats Solo there too! Sorry Solo just really irritates me )

    Just watched a short video of him, and aside from the fact that he was picked in the 50s and will more than likely be a total non-factor...he looks to be pretty athletic and long, so hopefully he can be the steal of all steals and turn into a superstar somehow.

    Other than that, he's got a cool name.

    If he makes the team, I want his # to be 44 with Magnum instead of Rolle above it.

    That's how irrelevant Solo is that I didn't even remember #44 was his #.


    Can anyone give any info on Magnum? I don't even know where he played college ball, how many years in college, age, stats, abilities, size, position played, etc.

    That training video was cool to watch, actually.
    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!

    I would prefer his number be "40oz" if his jersey name is Magnum.

    Rolle looks like a pretty solid pick near the end of the draft. He has NBA height, length, and athleticism and his rebounding is supposed to be pretty solid. However, he's not strong enough and needs to add some muscle mass to be effective. His offense appears to be very, very raw, although he does appear to have a decent jumpshot. I've watched a few videos of him, and he looks like he's decent enough with put-backs and tip-ins, but he'd need a lot more strength to do that as a role player in the NBA. He also looked surprisingly solid at catching and shooting from mid-range, but I'd need to see him some big games to be convinced that he is much of a threat there.

    Rolle's bragged about his own work ethic. If he truly is willing to work, they could get a role player out of him by putting him into an intensive strength building routine and maybe letting him spend some time in the D league. He's a project, but he's a cheap project with low risk involved. I thought it was interesting to hear the comments from Bird that Rolle shared in that interview.

    At least to JOB.... 3 3PT attempts in 3 years? Tsk, tsk...

    He did make one, so I guess 33% isn't too bad...


    Anybody know why he missed the 07-08 year? Injury?
