Pacers Select UConn's A.J. Price In Second Round

New, comments

The Indiana Pacers picked up A.J. Price, a point guard with a little size and a dicey resume with the 52 pick in the NBA Draft. I was really hoping Patty Mills would be the targeted PG since he was still on the board, but the Pacers went with size in selecting Price who checks in at 6'2" and 190 pounds.

Price had a great season for UConn directing their run to the Final Four. Where it gets dicey is when you consider the knee surgery which robbed Price's game of some athleticism. Price also missed the 2004-05 season due to a brain hemorrhage and the 2005-06 season due to suspension for his role in the theft of some laptops from a UConn dorm.

Hopefully all of the drama is behind Price and he can secure a spot on the Pacers' roster.
