The Top 5 Best and Worst Indiana Pacers Draft Picks Since 2000

When the 2014 NBA draft starts up Thursday night, the Indiana Pacers—who finished with the best regular-season record in the Eastern Conference—will be waiting awhile before they hear their name on the podium.

Fifty-seven picks, to be exact.

Without a first-rounder, the Pacers will instead be focusing their efforts on getting the biggest bang for their second-round buck. And while history proves you can cull considerable value late in the draft, 57 hasn't exactly been a lucky number in recent years.

In fact, you have to go all the way back to 2005 to find a No. 57 pick that wound up sticking around (Marcin Gortat).

The Pacers might be saving their draft-day hopes for the future, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a trip down memory lane.

Follow us along as we look at Indiana’s five best and worst picks since 2000. Some of them might seem obvious, but we bet there will be one or two surprises along the way.
