Central Notes: Pacers, Budenholzer, Bulls, Tate

The Pacers will host their first pre-draft workout tomorrow morning and it too will consist of six participants, per an official release from the team. The highest rated players are UNLV big man Brandon McCoy and Wichita State guard Landry Shamet.

ESPN’s Jonathan Givony has Shamet coming off the board at No. 50 in the second round to the Pacers, so it makes sense that he’d be one of the first prospects they brought in. The Pacers also have the No. 23 overall selection. Meanwhile, McCoy is rated as the No. 70 overall prospect by Givony.

In addition to Shamet and McCoy, the Pacers will also host Jaylen Adams (St. Bonaventure), Marcus Foster (Creighton), Nick King (Middle Tennessee State), and Yante Maten (Georgia).

There is more tonight from the Central Division:

    Theres not much reason to trade up in this years draft. You’ll get a quality player 1-15. The special players are Ayton, Bagley, and Porter Jr. But Mikal Bridges could be a special player going 9 or 10 too.

    I would be happy if Philly did trade the 4 2nd round picks + the #10 for the #4 from Memphis & they could get MPJ, that would be a coup, he would add a ton of shooting & improve even more the young sixers, then definitely people would stop talking about bringing guys like Lebron, PG13 & Kawhi. Memphis would also get a good player in the #10 plus a bunch of prospects to work with in the 2nd round to add youth to their ageing squad, always counting that they do realize is time to rebuilt not try to compete one last year.

    Shamet is mocked 16th at nbadraft.net, as opposed to espninsider Givony’s 50th.

    There seems to be a consensus 14, then almost 9 straight wing players. Take your pick!
