Indiana Pacers hope to get a star with No. 13 pick

The Indiana Pacers are scheduled to select 13th in the 2021 NBA Draft. The Pacers, oddly, haven’t had a pick earlier than 10th since 1989 (George McCloud, 7th overall), so they’re used to trying to find diamonds in the rough. 

What can you find at No. 13? Anybody from Kobe Bryant to Georgios Papagiannis.

The Pacers’ recent draft history hasn’t been spectacular. In 2020, they held only the No. 54 pick and selected Duke’s Cassius Stanley, who appeared in 24 games as a rookie. 

Their five most recent first-round picks were Goga Bitadze (18th, 2019), Aaron Holiday (23rd, 2018), T.J. Leaf (18th, 2017), Caris LeVert (20th, 2016; his rights were traded soon after the draft for Thad Young, but LeVert ended up with the Pacers in a 2021 trade) and Myles Turner (11th, 2015).
