The NBA Draft may not significantly alter the Indiana Pacers but it will surely impact several teams the Pacers will be battling with for playoff position in the Eastern Conference next year.

The NBA offseason kicks into high gear on Thursday night with the NBA Draft from The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Television coverage on ESPN begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with the actual draft starting at 7:30 p.m. ET when the Cleveland Cavaliers will make the first pick.

Following Joel Embiid's foot injury, Andrew Wiggins moved to the top of most mock draft boards for the Cavs. At the other end of the spectrum, the Pacers will look to snag the best player available in the second round with the 57th overall pick.

Among the players projected for the Pacers in various mock drafts, a variety of types of players including: Khem Birch, Markel Brown, Sean Kilpatrick, Melvin Ejim and Alec Brown.

Trade action also highlights draft night and a couple of deals have already been reported. The Mavericks and Knicks swapped Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton for Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert and a couple other players and picks. The Pelicans acquired Omer Asik from Houston for a future first-round pick, freeing up some cap space for the Rockets. The Nuggets also landed a sweet deal to procure Arron Afflalo from the Magic for Evan Fournier and the 56th overall pick in the draft.

That's some pretty solid player movement and the fun is just beginning. So settle in and share your thoughts on what the Pacers are or are not doing along with how the competition is shaping up as the night progresses.
