Bledsoe and the Pacers?
If Eric Bledsoe declares and the Pacers don't get a top three pick I could see the Pacers taking a really long look at Eric Bledsoe. NBA scouts have said after John Wall he is the next best PG prospect, would this be a good idea for the Pacers?
Step up from their Current Point Guards I believe...
AJ Price, TJ Ford, & somewhat Luther Head.
He has more Potential then both of them too.
As Rubio said, He'd probably be there best option right now anyway, but I dont see Bledsoe going in the Indiana Pacers drafting range, win or lose lottery, they'll likely have a top 5 pick.....Bledsoe is not a top 5 player
PG is there #1 need, but once Wall is off the board, a point guard might not be selected until another 15-20 picks...and i dont think they'll take that stretch of drafting a Bledsoe in the higher half of the lottery
If Bledsoe continues his tourney form i think he will be top 10. In saying that MagikKnick your probably right. The Pacers might be smart and try get a late first round pick from somewhere to have a shot at a PG.
If Kentucky makes it far in the tourney and Bledsoe continues to play well against the competition, he could be a lottery pick. I don't see him getting taken top 5 though...if the Pacers somehow fall to 8 or 9 I could see it since that's not many picks higher than when the next PG will be taken
He is the 2nd best PG in the draft but if I'm Indiana, I'm not looking for a PG that may be a backup for 2 years.. I'm looking for anything to help Danny Granger.. Maybe a shooting guard because Brandon Rush is just too small or maybe a PF.. This draft seems full of power forwards
DId you see that dunk WOOOW crazy little guy !
Brandon Rush is 6'7 with a wingspan near 7ft. He has improved heaps over his time in the NBA. However in saying that your call for a PF is probably right on Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins would be great.
This seems to be another year for the big men...I agree though that a tough, rebounding forward like Favors or Cousins would be good for them
Bledsoe would benefit GREATLY if he declared this year. But he would also benefit from waiting a year since next year's draft is so weak. Tough decision for him...
