Pacers 2015 pre-draft workout attendees

The NBA draft will be held at the Barclays Center for the third straight year.

The NBA draft will be held at the Barclays Center for the third straight year.

The Pacers have both of their picks for the 2015 NBA Draft, which will be held on June 25th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The Pacers have both of their picks, No.11 and 43.

All year, the Pacers’ scouting department of 10 has done its research, attended hundreds of games plus various camps and All-Star games to gain as much knowledge on prospects for this year’s draft. They not only have the United States covered, but also the international game.

Following the NBA Draft Combine, which was held in Chicago in mid-May, the final piece to this year-round process is hosting individuals to Bankers Life Fieldhouse to talk with them more intimately, showing them around the building, and having them go against other top players in one-day workouts.

They typically go through testing, meet with various scouts, trainers, and members of the coaching staff, and then they are treated to lunch. It is there, in an informal, less-pressured situation, where the team tries to learn other new tidbits.

In 2014, where they only had a second round selection — they traded their No. 57 pick to New York for cash — the Pacers brought in over 50 players for pre-draft workouts.
