    The only positive I see with Plumlee is Josh Harrelson, a better pro than college player.

    Harrellson had to deal with coaching changes and didn't really get a chance to shine until his senior year. UK simply had higher rated bigs on their roster for most of his career. When UK had no other true bigs, they turned to him and he showed what he could do.

    Miles Plumlee on the other hand was given a chance to play in all of his seasons at Duke. Very little chance he suddenly surprises people the way Harrellson did.

    I think it's kind of funny that nobody has heard of Plumlee and he's from Fort Wayne.

    All I really know about the Plumlees is that they were born in my hometown.

    Otherwise yeah I don't like this pick either but I admit I like the actually show(excitement of the draft picks etc) than the draft selections I've seen thus far go figure.

    Who hasn't heard of the guy? We all know who he is from what I have seen. And we all know he isn't any good.

    I was listening to ESPN Radio's coverage of the draft and they had Pritchard on. He talked about Plumlee's workout and mentioned that Jeff Foster LOVED his game.

    If he's good enough for Foster, then he's good enough for me.

    If in his first five minutes of NBA action he lays a star player out when he drives to the hoop, I will be happy.

    They attended a prep school in North Carolina that is known for getting players exposure and div 1 scholarships. That is why they didn't get a lot of coverage back home. They spent their high school careers down south.

    Miles was originally committed to a Pac 10 school. When Mason committed to Duke, Miles used a coaching change to back out of his commitment and also committed to Duke.

    I would rather the pacers draft Scott Haskin again because this is what this feels like
    Help us Paul George......you're our only hope

    dont yell at me... but I'm starting to lighten up to the fact that we drafted this guy... the more and more i look at highlights ect. the more i like him being a backup center on our team.

    How many 4 year college players who peaked out at 6 points per game have succeeded in the NBA? I am guessing ZERO.

    Maybe Hummel goes undrafted? would be a decent UDFA

    How disappointing is the pick? I had sold half of my Colts season ticket to my brother-in-law and was considering selling the other half so I can finally renew my Pacers season ticket. Now, I'm probably looking at an 11-game mini-plan at most, if that. Hey Larry, thanks for screwing us on your way our the door. What a waste of my night. Again.
    I can't imagine anybody picked at #26 was going to be much of a difference-maker for us this year. In a couple seasons, maybe. But this year? You're hanging your hopes on the last 5 picks in the first round?
    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!

    This does make me feel better, BUT Jeff gave his team 14 and 11 in Texas State, not 6 and 7. Plumlee is a really good rebounder. Yes, possibly better than Lou. I will chill for now that we have a guy I like in Orlando Johnson. I will pass judgement after watching this years summer league. This dude better own the glass in Orlando. Mainly due to the fact I view his skill set to that of a typical summer league hopeful.

    Really, this was what the pacers did? I am a fan, but oh my gosh, I know I am a fan and so on, but..... the pacers would've been better off drafting me. And no, no green font is intended. Let Euro scouts decide what they think of that... but if Miles Plumlee goes in the first freaking round, there might still be a future for me out there! I am no guru, but pffff oh boy!
    Yay, I don't know if we're going back to the play-offs!

    Born in Warsaw but moved to Fort Wayne although lets face most people from Warsaw align themselves with either Fort Wayne or South Bend.

    The only famous person to ever acknowledge Warsaw publically was Rick Fox when he went to the local HS here for the last two years of his HS career then of course went to North Carolina rest is history.

    Machado would also be interesting as an UDFA

    I'm not a fan of the pick, but I am at least somewhat intrigued by it. He clearly has an NBA body with NBA athleticism. He just hasn't learned how to use it properly. He has encouraging jumps from his junior to senior year. It is nice to see his rebounding, points, and FG percentage make notable gains while the fouls went slightly down. So he improved then, and of course he has been apparently very impressive in workouts.

    Plumlee doesn't have elite upside, and he has a pretty big question mark attached to to his ability to hit the upside he has. I don't think they needed to pick somebody at 26 with that sort of combination. But he does have potential to be a pretty good player, and hopefully the coaching staff has seen something that makes them think he'll use more of his physical skills in the pros than he did in college. If nothing else, he should be a pretty solid rebounder, which was a problem for the Pacers on their 2nd unit last year. Hopefully he doesn't give away too many other skills in exchange for filling that particular need.
