The Indiana Pacers brought in a group of non-rookie free agents to workout today and Tuesday at Conseco Fieldhouse. Ridiculous Upside has a partial list of players which is full of ghosts of pre-draft workouts past.
Former second round pick, James White is in to try and prove he can do more than dunk. Also on the list are several semi-notable players, including guards Bobby Brown, Matt Janning, Javaris Crittenton and Sylven Landesberg. The group of wings and big men joining White includes DeMarre Carroll, Ime Udoka, Rob Kurz, Leo Lyons, Chris Daniels and Trent Plaisted.
After a couple of years with little to no cap space and a rigid roster full of guaranteed contracts, the Indiana Pacers not only have their coveted cap space to work with but roster space as well.
Next year's version of the Pacers (please, please let there be a next year) will have to fill at least five open roster spots which does not include the non-guaranteed spot held by A.J. Price. Considering the amount of money available for free agent signings is unknown and likely limited, the Pacers will have a spot or two open for an inexpensive player begging for an opportunity to stay in the league or show they belong.
