Nice to hear someone outside our organization is also impressed with Rolle... although I doubt he takes minuets away from Tyler if he is healthy, I could see Rolle getting some back-up 5 mins though (if Solo got mins there Rollo absolutely could).The Pacers selected Magnum Rolle with the 51st overall pick in last month's NBA Draft. And so far, he's impressing in Orlando's Summer League.
Writes Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman: "He has taken Orlando by storm. He never stops hustling. He goes after every rebound, contests every shot and plays every possession like it's his lasts ... Rolle reminds me of a smarter, more interested, less athletic Tyrus Thomas. Not a bad set of tools."
We'll caution that this is just the Summer League. But it's possible Rolle could challenge Tyler Hansbrough for playing time next season in the Pacers' frountcourt, as Hansbrough had an uneven rookie year because of injuries this past season.
