Lets have a civilized thread where each of us posts our top 4 or 5 players we would like to see the Pacers pick at #15. I am really interested to see how opinions vary as it seems like we are all over the board here. Name your players in order of preference and why you think the Pacers should pick them. Here's my take:
1.) Jimmer Freddette - Safest pick in the draft if he is there at 15. He gives us legit scoring punch in the second unit and could be clutch in end of game situations. Gives Lance more time to grow up before we come to depend on him for minutes at the point.
2.) Marshon Brooks - I love the offensive punch he would bring to the second unit. PG and Brooks would make an awesome SG rotation for years to come.
3.) Chris Singleton - I like his size at the three spot and his defensive intensity in the second unit. Let's face it, SOMEBODY on the second unit is going to have to try and impede LeBron James when Granger is resting. I am not as high on him offensively though.
4.) JaJaun Johnson - I like him because I am a Purdue homer, just to get that out of the way. I think he can be an effective post up scorer against other bench players and he is very active on defense. I think we are bringing back McRoberts, but we will still be thin in the frontcourt. I consider this the alamo in terms of the Pacers draft choices though and i am seriously considering trading down if JJ is all that is left at 15.
