Indiana has gone quiet this weekend, with no draft workouts done this weekend. That all changed though this morning as Pacers.com writer, Scott Agness announced it on Twitter.
Pacers workout group for Monday: Rotnei Clarke, Troy Daniels, Augusto Lima (Spain), Amath M’Baye, Glen Rice, Jr., and Durand Scott.— Scott Agness (@ScottAgness) June 16, 2013
As you can tell, the workout list does not sound appealing for the 23rd pick in the draft. Only one person in this workout will truly be in consideration for that pick and that is Glen Rice Jr. of the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the D-League. The other five prospects are expected to either go undrafted or taken in the mid-late second round come draft night.
Rotnei Clarke (PG/SG, Butler) or Troy Daniels (SG, VCU), would be a lightning rods for the Pacers off the bench to help boost their scoring. Augusto Lima was a star of the 2013 EuroCamp in Treviso, being a true force on the defensive end against first round picks like Lucas Nogueria. Amath M'Baye (SF, Oklahoma) or Durand Scott (SG, Miami) would give Indiana an energy guy off the bench, and also an able scorer.
Pacers lead scout, Ryan Carr was at least one of these players games this season. Sometime this week, I will give you an inside look to Carr's Twitter adventures this season to see if it helps us find out who the Pacers really want.
Below is a prospect breakdown from Draft Express on the only first round prospect in this workout at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Monday, Rice Jr. He lost in the first round in the Indy Cornrows 23rd Pick Tournament to Jamaal Franklin of San Diego State. Rice Jr's range is anywhere from the early 20's to mid 30's come draft night.
