Default Pacers Looking To Draft For Help

The Pacers are preparing for this June's NBA Draft by scouting players in person and reviewing game tape as they look for someone to fit their offensive style, according to the Indianapolis Star.

If the Lottery holds true, the Pacers will have the 11th pick in the draft.

"If you get somebody that doesn't play his style, he's not going to play much anyways," Bird said of finding a player to fit coach Jim O'Brien's system. "Jimmy will be involved in it. He won't tell us who to draft, but he'll be watching a lot of tape and getting his hands in the middle of it."

PG should be our primary concern. Tinsley is basically done. Hes always injured and has made it clear that you cannot rely on him as a starting PG no more. Besides Tins, we use Diener, Flip and Daniels as our PG. 2 of them are not even considered PGs, theyre more SG/Swingmen. It would be good to somehow get a guy late in the first round like Hibert, hes going to be a good rebounder and defender in this league.

Some semblance of perimeter defense (aka Russel Westbrook)
