The Pacers are holding their first set of workouts today for the upcoming NBA Draft.

Biggie is among the six participants that will be in Indianapolis for their pre-draft workout. The other fie guys are: Jordan Bell (Oregon), Josh Hart (Villanova), Wesley Iwundu (Kansas State), Monte Morris (Iowa State) and Derrick White (Colorado).

The Pacers hold the 18th overall pick in the upcoming draft. Most of the NBA mock drafts have Biggie going anywhere from the mid 20’s to almost the 40th overall pick. But, you only need one team to absolutely love you to be taken early.

The Pacers desperately need a solid rebounder next to Myles Turner. Obviously, they have Thad Young currently, but need depth behind him. They have Lavoy Allen, but he has not been great recently. In my opinion, Biggie adds more to a team than Lavoy Allen.

Caleb could help stretch the floor for the Pacers, if they could have all 5 starters shoot the ball deep, they could improve drastically. I am a huge Pacers fan and would love to have him in Indy. A jersey would be bought immediately.

Biggie would add a rebounding dimension that the Pacers lack with their second team. He would also add work ethic and the hustle that they need. Their star, Paul George questioned the team’s toughness and hustle a few times this year. Caleb fills all of those holes.

Best of luck today, Caleb!
