It may be the offseason, but things are far from quiet over at 125 South Pennsylvania Street.
The Pacers, who advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals for the first time in seven years before falling to the Heat, are holding their second workout with first-round draft prospects. Indiana owns the 26th-pick in the 2012 NBA Draft held two weeks from today, on June 28th.
The team will bring in many more prospects before the draft for in-person visits to see how they act, hustle and workout. The session usually involves shooting drills and a coaching session before scrimmaging.
Head coach Frank Vogel will lead the workouts along with his coaching staff. President Larry Bird and many team scouts will be in attendance to interact with the prospects and grade their workout.
