2013 NBA Draft: Pacers Draft Day Next Open Thread

The top of the draft started with a surprise but there is still time to ponder what the Pacers may do with No. 23 in the draft.

So the Cleveland Cavaliers shredded every mock draft by selecting Anthony Bennett out of UNLV with the top pick, leaving a shell-shocked Nerlens Noel watching in the green room.

Former Indiana Hoosier, Victor Oladipo went next to the Orlando Magic completing an amazing rise from JAG (just another guy) with hops to the No. 2 pick in the draft. He earned it the old fashioned way.

After Otto Porter went No. 3 to the Washington Wizards, IU was back in the spotlight with Cody Zeller getting selected by the Charlotte Bobcats at No. 4. Nerlens Noel remained in a state of shock but eventually went No. 6 to the New Orleans Pelicans. Nerlens in Nawlins along with Anthony Davis seems a little like overkill and the 'Cans agreed, so they are reportedly going to send Noel to Philly for Jrue Holiday and a future No. 1 pick. Wow, I like Holiday.

Huge night for IU, now we'll see what the draft has in store for the Pacers.
