After Jimmer Fest at the Fieldhouse yesterday, the Indiana Pacers continue their up close and personal inspection of NBA draft prospects today.
The forward-filled workout is headlined by Kyle Singler (Duke) and Tyler Honeycutt (UCLA). Joining those two will be Jimmy Butler (Marquette), Jamine Peterson (Providence), Joffrey Lauvergne (France) and spot-up shooter, Jon Diebler (Ohio State). I'm assuming Diebler will drive to the workout (rim shot).
As you can see from the links after the jump, Jimmer Fredette moves the media needle.
So that's my first impression, snap reaction to the limited portion of the workout I was able to watch today. It was nice to see these players in person and see how they move around and physically stack up. Plan on plenty of highlights and audio in the links tomorrow.
Caught in the Web: Jimmer out to prove he's more than a shooter
For Fredette, it's the same old story -- the shooter has to prove he's a player. Is he quick enough to play point guard in the NBA? Is he athletic enough to create his shot at this level? Can he defend even a little?
