    Default Pre-draft workouts

    Figured this could possibly be the thread to discuss those coming in for workouts.

    This Thursday:

    Corey Fisher (Villanova)
    Justin Harper (Richmond)
    JaJuan Johnson (Purdue)
    Darius Morris (Michigan)
    Josh Selby (Kansas)
    Chris Wright (Georgetown)

    Any potential targets you think? Sure some of them are not likely for #15.

    Ya but I was hoping nobody would bring him up. If Bird drafted him then I think it would be a mistake.

    I don't like any of these guys besides JJ and Harper. I think Justin Harper will be a solid player in this league.

    Absolutely not. I wanted us to draft him, and was initially shocked by the traded, but I was all for it once I saw what we were getting back (Jarrett Jack).

    I also like JJ and Justin. Not at 15 obviously.

    Selby intrigues me, I think he has a ton of potential. I would also like to look at Morris.

    Fisher and Wright I have not heard about much.

    NBADraft.net has Shelby at 23, and DX has him at 31 (first pick of the second round).

    Morris seemed a little stiff at times form me in the combine, he also seemed a little all over the place when he played this year in Mich, but I do think that he has tons of talent and with a coach to teach him change of pace offense then he will really improve his game.

    Morris and Selby are the only 2 candidates for the #15 pick in that group.

    I like both Johnson and Harper, but getting either one is going to involve a trade. They're not good enough to go at #15 and will likely be gone before we pick in the 2nd round.

    I'm always interested in pre-draft workouts b/c the Pacers always draft a player they had in for workouts.

    They don't select players who haven't worked out for them at Conseco

    Is Morris even worth 15? I thought he was supposed to go a lot later.

    Josh Selby to is a sleeper in this draft. He didn't have a good college career because of the suspension, well i think thats why. I think he could be a good at the pg. But the only problem is that we already have potential there already with Lance.

    I don't know if Selby is a target or not, but you don't pass on someone because of Lance.

    I still wish we had kept Bayless. He's probably going to have his breakout season while Rush disappears to the bench.

    I think this is a Josh Shelby workout, if you looked at his potential and ratings early, he was a lottery type. I think they set this up to see if he really stands out. I think they did similar workouts last year, where it looked like one guy might clearly be the higher possibility. Who knows.

    Also, how much different it JaJuan Johnson than Magnum Rolle at the NBA level?

    Great Trade
    Pacers got the best player in that deal Jarrett Jack. Mc Roberts > Digou 3 X more than Bayless > Rush.
