With training camp rapidly approaching, the Pacers have wrapped up their training camp roster with the addition of 7-2 center Luke Nevill and 6-3 PG Ben Hansbrough. The Pacers add size with the Australian center Nevill, who had a colored career at the University of Utah, winning the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year in 2009, taking the Utes to the NCAA Tournament. Nevill's path to the NBA has involved a summer camp stop in New Orleans and a training camp invite with the Cavaliers. Nevill spent a year with the Utah Flash of the D-League, averaging 11.9 points and 5.5 boards for the playoff bound Flash. He played last season in Australia's NBL for his home town Perth Wildcats.

Hansbrough, brother of Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough, has a bit more familiarity with the Pacers, having spent the Summer League playing for the blue and gold. Fans will remember up and down performances from the younger Hansbrough, a Notre Dame product who was the 2010-11 Big East Player of the Year. He spent last season overseas playing in Germany and Slovenia. Hansborugh spent the Summer League as the primary backup to Lance Stephenson, scoring 18 points in the team's fourth game loss to Utah in Stephenson's steed.
