There are several undrafted free agents who would be steals for the Indiana Pacers.
Some of these prospects, like the New Mexico Lobos' Kendall Williams, were invited by the Pacers to attend their predraft workouts two weeks ago. Others, such as Nevada's Deonte Burton—an unheralded point guard—are not yet on Indy's radar but should be.
Some bigger-name undrafted rookies have the potential to thrive in the Pacers system but have already committed to the summer leagues of other clubs. The University of North Carolina's James Michael McAdoo (Golden State Warriors) and Michigan State's Keith Appling (Portland Trail Blazers) are some of them.
A diamond in the rough or two should be somewhere out there for the Indiana Pacers. Any of these early summer league signees can still wind up in blue and gold.
Last week, this author mentioned that Indy's biggest need is a playmaking point guard. The team also needs to shore up its bench—particularly by finding a backup center and another shooter.
Are any of these unsung heroes up to the task?
