Pacers in the Mix for ROY

In his article, Rookie Watch: Who are the early favorites for ROY?, David Thorpe of ESPN.com, predicts Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert (the Pacers #11 and #17 selections in the NBA draft) to be among the top fifteen rookies with the best chance of earning the all coveted NBA Rookie of the Year honors.  Here is what Thorpe had to say about our young talent, enjoy!

(Keep in mind the list was of the top twenty rookie prospects heading into the 2008-09 season, which includes the likes of Greg Oden and Marc Gasol)

10. Brandon Rush, SG, Pacers
Has a beautiful outside stroke and is ready to defend -- a perfect fit in Indy. Newly acquired point guard T.J. Ford will get him shots in half-court sets and in transition.

15. Roy Hibbert, C, Pacers

Highly skilled and smart. And huge, too. Should be able to get minutes on this team and be a half-court option right away.

and who says big Hibbert doesn't have versatility?
