WRG 2012 Mock Draft - #26 Indiana Pacers

We have built our team by targeting players we think fit well in our system and in our locker room and acquiring those players.  That sounds obvious and easy, but it's a challenge.  We have built around older, more established college stars who really love and understand basketball but don't always come with a flashy game.

It's hard to watch us play sometimes and not think of bringing in some more explosive athletes or younger, less developed players.

However, we had a terrific season last year and we are good right now and it's time to bring in someone safe who we think can help us and give us a little insurance against not faring well in free agency.

Our backcourt needs help and we see a young man available who we think can be a regular rotation player for us, back up both positions and be a live sparkplug off the bench.  He's a cool-headed winner who played several roles on essentially a pro team, and he can really shoot.

The Pacers select Doron Lamb, SG, Kentucky

"This draft never saw anyone from Kentucky get pick- What? Really? Damn. Well at least I'm the only one named Lamb that got drafted, right?"
