13. Indiana Pacers – James Bouknight, G, UCONN
The Indiana Pacers have never been the same since Victor Oladipo’s initial quad injury. They’ve flashed as a team that could potentially make some noise in the postseason, but it’s clear that the team is still struggling.
That said, adding a player such as James Bouknight at 13 would be a smart move. Bouknight has somewhat become an underrated prospect in this draft class and was mightily impressive on the offensive end during his sophomore season at UCONN.
Bouknight would be a welcomed addition to the Pacers and could eventually develop into a player that the team could lean on down the line. He may need a year or two to develop but could end up being a really good player for this team.
