    Please no Draymond Green that would be a sour way to end Larry's job

    It's interesting that we are actually looking into top 10. I assumed mid 1st/late lottery at best.
    That #10 for DC+#26 rumor has always seemed a big stretch to me. But who knows.
    At least we are ambitious.

    Although to be honest, unless it's a top 7 pick, I'd rather have something like #16 and #18 from the Rockets.
    #8-10 = someone like Austin Rivers or Dion Waiters
    #16-20 = Sullinger, Royce White, Moultrie, maybe PJ3 or Terrence Ross... I'd much rather have two of those.

    These are the guys that we're rumored to like according to leaks, so I can why Chad thinks this is the Pacers' big board. That said, I hope those leaks turn out to be deliberate misinformation spread by the FO. Wouldn't it be funny if the scouts are backslapping themselves right now over Chad Ford's article

    Hmm do think it is somewhat interesting that the Kings rejected Lowry+#16 for #5, Lowry is a borderline all-star at this point and would've been, had his season not derailed due to injuries. I can understand though, as they have no real need for a PG, since they made Thomas theirs at the expense of Evans. The trade doesn't work for them, but they would definitely get the most value in this trade. Still they're nowhere close to competing so just stocking up on assets would seem like the way to go.
    Yay, I don't know if we're going back to the play-offs!

    But if MKG or Robinson fall to #5, it would be a bummer. I'd consider that trade on draft night.

    I'm not sure of the answer, but its occurred to me recently, whats there NOT to like about Barnes. He seems to have everything you'd describe in a guy who could be a potential all star at the next level. Why is he not considered a home run type pick?

    ....because his handle sucks? Wings that can't dribble generally dont become superstars.

    Because he has all those skills and has only had 2 very good college years.

    As an aside, if the Bobcats draft anyone other than Thomas Robinson at #2, would anybody else consider trading them Tyler for #31? I would do it if I could get a chance at a guy like Barton, Machado, or Fournier.

    If we somehow move into the top 10 and end up with either lillard or waiters I will be ecstatic.

    Both those players could end up being the best player from this draft outside of anthony davis.

    Basically, anyone watching him in the tournament last season really didn't like what they saw. The guy shot the ball incredibly poorly, turned it over, made bad plays/decisions etc. It was awful.

    Danny Granger?.....Actually I think that Barnes will be DG with maybe a little more athleticism.

    God, this would be the greatest draft ever if we did these 4 things.

    You and just about every other Pacer fan lol. The more I hear we're going to take him, the more I doubt that we do. As a previous poster said, Larry normally surprises people in the draft (Shawne Williams, Tyler, Paul, Roy...none of those guys were expected to be taken by the Pacers)

    Hansbrough is worth more than a late first.

    I'd hope so too.

    I think Cavs #24 + #34 is my best case scenario. Can then trade DC + #26 + #28 for the #6 to take Lillard. & still draft Quincy Miller/Fab Melo at #24. Then #34 take someone else to help deepen the bench like Lamb in case we need a deadeye shooter.

    Do you mean Hans value to us is worth more than a 1st or his trade value is more than a 1st? I'd be surprised if Charlotte would give us the 1st pick in the 2nd round for him.

    Not right now, he isn't.

    If he reaches his potential? Sure.

    I'm hoping Draymond Green is just a smokescreen. Nothing against the guy as he seems like a good guy and teammate, but I'd rather see someone with more speed, athleticism, and upside if not pure size.

    First off kind of surprised Bird is making the pick, I understand that he has been there for most of the process, but he is making the start for a new GM and new President, seems a little weird, but I bet they will add a lot of insight on the pick so it may not seem as weird as it seems.

    Thing is Teague never even came in for a workout, also I am surprised that Quincy Miller is not on this list.

    Too passive, too often and does not play athletic even though he has the ability to.
    Why so SERIOUS
