    I at least feel good that Bird has the chance to pick up a quality bench player in this draft. I do wish he'd buy/trade for an early 2nd. Loads of talent in this draft.

    Now really free Lance!

    I've read this board for a long time but have finally decided to join, partially to help with Jenkins, Taylor, and Ezeli. I have had season tickets for the past three years, so I know a little about them.

    Taylor will not be there at 26 unfortunately, the Cavs like him but he has been told that he is a late lottery player. Over this past season he progressed more than any player I've ever seen from one season to another. He developed a very nice shooting touch and actually improved on his driving ability. (He is the top dunker in this draft. He cut his head on the Rim at one point during his tenure at Vandy.)

    Jenkins is the best shooter in the nation. For that reason alone I wish the Pacers would draft him! Literally people celebrate as he releases the ball (which he does extremely fast), they don't wait until it goes in. The reason he isn't a lottery pick is because he isn't too quick and his defense isn't his strong point. But he has the best shooting touch I've ever seen! It's truly amazing...

    Ezeli had a rough year because of a torn MCL, he was a sure fire lottery pick before the injury. He is a huge body, and plays great defense. His offensive game had improved A LOT but the injury slowed him down. Reports are saying he looks like the old Ezeli again though so we'll see.

    Taylor will be gone, I want Jenkins, we should and could (maybe) get Ezeli.

    GO DORES!

    Ugh I just spent 15 minutes describing each of the three Vandy players on my IPhone and I cannot find my post anywhere..

    Summary*

    I have read the board for a long time, but finally decided to post for this purpose.

    ** Taylor will be gone. Great slasher and finisher (best dunker in draft.) has recently developed a nice jump shot..

    ** Jenkins is by far the best shooter in this draft, and yes I said BY FAR.

    ** Ezeli is a huge body that plays great defense. An MCL tear caused him to have a rough senior season.

    I hope my first post shows up at some point

    GO DORES!

    If the Pacers came away with 2 players on my list, I'd be thrilled. Granted, the Pacers would have to buy or trade for another late first/early 2nd round pick.

    Quincy Miller
    Royce White
    Jeff Taylor
    Doron Lamb
    Darius Miller
    Jae Crowder

    Those are my favs right now. I really like Crowder cause he has such a high BBIQ and a good defender, that I think he'll find a way to transition to SG/SF instead of PF/SF.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    With Roy Hibbert being a restricted free-agent, Foster retired, Amundson just a hussle guy (unrestricted) and Fesenko an anomaly (unrestricted) the biggest need for the Pacers is a back-up big man.

    The two guys that may be there at 26 is FAB MELO & FESTUS EZELI. Most likely Fab will be gone by the time we pick. He is mostly just a shot blocker with no real offensive game. He's from Brazil which would be funny if we resign Barbosa.

    Festus Ezeli has a good chance to be our pick. He is a big 6'11" 255lbs and has a good right hand hook. He looks like the kind of guy that would be perfect buddies with Roy on and off the court. Roy can play 30+ minutes and have Festus pick up the next 18 or so. Sounds like a good tag team.

    It doesn't look like any quality power forwards are going to fall down to us. I don't like Royce White, he has attitude problems and he's more of a combo forward. Andrew Nicholson is skilled but is a power forward in a small forward body.

    If we can't get a big man there are six quality small forwards in this draft. If QUINCY MILLER or JEFF TAYLOR slip down to us, that would be a great pick up.

    If Ezeli or Taylor is already gone by the time we pick we may go shooting guard. Doron Lamb is undersized but can shoot and Evan Fournier has good size, can score but can he defend.

    I don't really see us going point guard in this draft. Marquis Teague is an Indiana boy but is he really that much better than Collison. Tony Wroten has great size and left hand going to the hoop but I would be surprised if we went that way.

    John Jenkins. that's about all he does, but he's about the best in college at it, if not the best. Absolutely pure shooter.

    Lamb will likely go toward the end of the top 10 picks.
    Maybe Jeremy Lamb. If a GM drafts Doron Lamb in the lottery, he's likely working on unemployment.

    I agree....I totally think that some 1st Round talent that isn't as "flashy" but solid that will fall. I really hope that we go after a 2nd round pick to pick one of those Players that drop.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Will Buford or Darius Miller? Well, they aren't necessarily surefire 1st round guys, but I think they will have solid pro careers off the bench.

    I dont see Buford being that successful I dont think most of his game transfers especially on defense. Also I want to see him play vs elite athletes every night his athleticism may limit him. Miller I think will translate solid defense and can shoot solid glue guy.

    Thanks for joining, and giving the insight from a Vandy fan that went to games, I am with you on everything you said besides the Jenkins in late-lottery, while I think he has a chance to get up there I will also say that area is deep and a lot of the separation will happen after private workouts an the draft combine are done. If he really shows up and out plays some guys I think he can get up there, if not he sill probably go somewhere in the next 9 picks after the lottery is over.

    Thanks again

    I know neither plays a position of need, but I'd like (Jeremy) Lamb or (preferably) Austin Rivers on this team. I'd love the Pacers to get one of them and work out the minutes later. It would mean one of DC/GH leaves, but I think that's a given anyway. Ideally we'd be able to draft a high-assist point guard, but considering where we're currently picking it doesn't look too likely, so I'd like a guy who can knock down shots in bulk.

    Taylor interests me most of the players who could be available in this range. Taylor and White both have lots of talent, but with Taylor we don't have to worry about the personality/character concerns. Talyor would be my top choice at #26. I expect Taylor to be chosen a few spots before Indiana picks, but terrific players have fallen to the Pacers before. Our top two players, Granger and Hibbert, were picked at #17 if memory serves.

    If Bird decides to trade up, I'd want Moultrie. If I had a mid-1st round pick, Moultrie would definitely be the guy I'd select. Pretty easy choice in my view. Austin Rivers wouldn't be a bad choice, either.

    Lamb is probably early teens if not top 10, Rivers probably top 15, but yup I think it would be DC that would be leaving, more trade value. But yeah if you would like to trade up that far to get one of them, you could also make a push at Marshall who will be going around the same range as Rivers.

    Anyone willing to bet for or against Boston taking Austin if he is still on the board when they draft?

    My guess... They do!

    I agree... I wasn't paying close enough attention that the posters mentioning him were talking trading up... I thought they were intimating that he could fall to us... My skim reading really leads to some ill-thought-out posts sometimes...

    If you could get Jenkins as your bench scorer then you could replace Barbosa.

    When you are picking in the 25-35 range I don't like the "best athlete" or "potential" types of picks. At that point the history is strongly against you. What you have to go for is guy who can do 1 thing at a quality NBA level.

    The Pacers aren't going to improve though the draft this year. And I also hate the idea of going for a general SF in the Paul George mode because if that was the plan then you should have kept Leonard last year.
