    He is not a very consistant shooter. .346 from 3 point rainge, .397 overall, and took a lot of shots to average 17.6 ppg last season.

    For real. Reggie was a lotto pick... please don't say his next incarnation is a second-round player.
    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!

    Did you go to the Butler game @ Hinkle? If so why did you ruin my good fun? Gordan Heyword is going be a better pro than Vaden. He is a decent player, good range/quick release but the kid thinks he is Kobe & MJ. Due to his attitude I think he would hurt our team.

    Vaden plays with heart... a late 2nd rnd pick on him would not be wasted. IMHO

    If memory serves me correctly, Vaden's name has already been on the police blotter in Bloomington a couple times. Maybe in Alabama as well? I seem to recall the situation(s) being of the drunk and disorderly nature. That is what I remember anyway.

    Great article on him on SI.com. Hayward is impressing at USA Trials. Great news for Butler.

    If Robert Vaden is the next Reggie, then Shade is the next McKey and Peck is the next Dale Davis. You can pencil me in as the next Smits while you're at it.

    Why would the Pacers draft Vaden? I'd rather they just held onto Stephen Graham if all they're looking to do is retain a 3rd string shooter because you have to know that he won't see much playing time behind BRush or Dunleavy. Of course, that could change IF Dunleavy doesn't return to the floor anytime soon OR if JOB uses him more at SF than at SG. So, you never know. Still, my take is you leave the SG's alone and draft a PF and a SF.

    Vaden will probably be a very solid player. Unfortunately, I really don't see where he'd really fit the Pacers' more immediate needs right now.

    No he wasn't. In the 23-team NBA, there were only seven lottery picks. The Pacers made the playoffs the year before drafting Reggie as the #7 seed.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Ah . . . you need to explain this. If there were only 7 lottery picks, why wasn't Reggie a lottery pick at #7?

    Tough call there. I wonder if he'll be better than Maceo Baston.

    If your looking for a short version of Reggie in the second round I would say Meeks fits the bill. He could be a courtney lee 2.0.

    Because Reggie was the 11th pick???



    EDIT

    We were the seventh seed in the playoffs. There were seven teams that didn't make the playoffs (and thus, were in the lottery). Too many sevens, I guess.

    EDIT Again

    If Cleveland had taken him with the #7 pick (instead of Kevin Johnson), he would have been a lottery pick. And we wouldn't care a bit about Reggie Miller.

    Really? That's news for me.

    Just kidding. Sarcasm there about Maceo being a good shooter.

    I'd give Vaden a look and invite him to join our summer league team if he's not drafted late in the 2nd. He could be 3rd string 2 guard and could spend some time in Ft. Wayne this season working more on his game and might be a contributor in a few seasons.

    And yes, he has been arrested a few times -- at least once in Bloomington and once in Birmingham. See the article from the Bloomington Herald Times from last October: http://www.heraldtimesonline.com/sto...sto?1245447513

    Robert Vaden arrested after downtown incident

    By Marcela Creps 331-4375 | mcreps@heraldt.com
    October 14, 2008

    A former Indiana University basketball player was arrested on an alcohol-related charge following an incident downtown.

    Robert Vaden, 23, of Indianapolis, was arrested on a preliminary charge of public intoxication. Vaden is a former IU basketball player who is now a senior at the University of Alabama Birmingham.

    Bloomington Police Officer Ian Lovan was on patrol early Saturday morning. At 1:56 a.m., Lovan saw a man in a red shirt who appeared intoxicated and was pushing people in front of the 300 block of North Walnut Street.

    Lovan spoke to the man, later identified as Vaden. According to the police report, Vaden appeared intoxicated. Lovan administered several dexterity tests on Vaden which he failed. Vaden was taken to the Monroe County Jail and booked on the public intoxication charged.

    Vaden was a recruit of former IU basketball coach Mike Davis. He played for two seasons for IU, but left the team when Davis resigned. He followed Davis to UAB where he had to sit out a year.

    At UAB, Vaden was one of five Blazer basketball players arrested and jailed in the early morning hours last Aug. 31 for an incident outside a Birmingham nightclub. The players began arguing and fighting among themselves at about 1:30 a.m. inside Club Red, according to a police report cited in The Birmingham News, and eventually spilled outside the club, resulting in off-duty officers working at the club calling for backup because the players wouldn’t cooperate with them.

    The police report said officers were forced to arrest the players who refused to cooperate and continued yelling at police and people on the street
