We should try to get a pg, since this draft has many talent pgs.

And draft a PF/C, because JO wont be here forever.

I agree, and there are some guys that could be acquired at the PG position. Ty Lawson from UNC and UCLA's Darren Collison could be drafted in the first round. Down low, they could get DeVon Hardin, a PF/C from California. If Indiana is feeling really gutsy, they could take a reach on Hasheem Thabeet.

To me, the ultimate addition would be Roy Hibbert. He and Ike Diougu wouldn't be the fastest inside combo, but get them in the half-court game, and good luck. Hibbert likely won't be available when the Pacers pick, however.

I agree. Diogu at PF is solid, but if they want to get to the top, they'll need another threat down low, preferably an athletic guy.

I just don't like Diogu's size, he's a small dude.
