Pacers Nab Aaron Holiday at #23

For the third time in the last two Drafts, the Pacers are adding another UCLA Bruin.

 

 

 A couple of notes about Holiday:

- First Team All-Pac-12 and All-Pac-12 Defensive team as a junior last season

- his NBADraft.net comparison is 1990s Pistons points guard Lindsey Hunter

- he's very quick guard who shot an impressive 43% from three-point range last season

- there are questions about his size (6'1, 180) and he's an older prospect (22)

- obviously comes from a basketball family with older brothers Jrue (Pelicans) and Justin (Bulls), his sister played at UCLA, and both parents played at Arizona State

- he was the last player left in the NBA Draft's green room tonight

- will be the fourth Pacers point guard on the roster, leaving Joe Young's team option status in a precarious spot
