Pacers' Georges Niang: Selected No. 50 overall by Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Niang was selected by the Pacers with the 50th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Niang had a great collegiate career for Iowa State, spending all four years in Ames while averaging 20.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists during his senior season. Despite his impressive accomplishments, the 6-foot-9 forward is perceived to lack the athleticism necessary for the NBA level, so a role with the Pacers shouldn't be expected out of training camp.

Pacers' Caris LeVert: Selected No. 20 overall by Pacers, will be traded to Nets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

LeVert was selected by the Pacers with the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. His draft rights will be traded to the Nets as part of a deal earlier Thursday that sent Thaddeus Young to Indiana.

LeVert finished up his college career with season-ending left foot fractures in his last two seasons, leading to speculation that he would fall into the second round. In a surprising move, the rebuilding Nets used their lone first-round pick on the 6-foot-7 wing from Michigan. LeVert's biggest asset is his athleticism and versatility, as his size and skill allows him to play anywhere from point guard to small forward. He has a solid outside stroke, hitting 40 percent of his three-pointers in college, and displayed a quick first step in getting to the rim. LeVert likely won't be fully recovered from his second foot procedure -- a Jones fracture to the fifth metatarsal -- in time for the start of summer league play, but he could be healthy enough to participate in training camp and audition for a spot in the Nets' rotation.

Pacers' Thaddeus Young: Traded to Pacers for 20th pick in 2016 NBA Draft
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Young was traded Thursday to the Pacers in exchange for the 20th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and a future second-round pick on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Young should immediately slot in as the Pacers' starting power forward, a position they struggled to receive consistent production from a season ago. As a member of the woeful Nets last season, Young averaged 15.1 points, a career-high 9.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 steals across 33.0 minutes per game in his 73 appearances. His scoring may take more of a backseat now that he has to compete with Paul George and Jeff Teague for primacy in the offense, but Young figures to remain an useful fantasy contributor in the defensive categories. Young's acquisition paves the way for promising second-year big man Myles Turner to move over to his more natural center spot with Ian Mahinmi set to become a free agent this offseason.

Pacers' Paul George: Accepts invitation to play in Olympics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

George accepted an invitation to play for Team USA during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, ESPN.com's Marc J. Spears reports.

The last time George suited up for USA Basketball in the summer of 2014, he suffered a horrific compound fracture in his right leg that looked like it could threaten his career, but the small forward assuaged any concerns about his long-term health by submitting an All-Star campaign in 2015-16, playing in 81 contests and averaging 23.1, 7.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game for the Pacers. With several of the top American players opting out of the Olympics, George could be a candidate to serve as a regular starter for the squad in Rio.

Pacers' Jeff Teague: Traded to the Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Teague (knee) was traded to the Pacers on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

The Pacers will send George Hill to the Jazz in the trade, while the Hawks will acquire the 12th overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft from Utah. With Dennis Schroder excelling in a reserve role last season and showing the Hawks that he's capable of taking the reins as the team's starting point guard, Teague became expendable and will open $8 million in cap space for the team. For his new team, Teague should claim Hill's spot in the starting lineup, but he doesn't figure to notice much of a boost in his 2015-16 averages of 15.7 points and 5.9 assists per game with the Pacers' offense running through high-volume All-Star Paul George. Nonetheless, the Pacers seem to view the 28-year-old a building block, as they plan to work on a contract extension with Teague before he becomes a free agent in 2017, according to Wojnarowski. Teague was hampered by a torn patellar tendon last season, but he should be fully healthy by the time training camp begins in the fall.
