Pacers 2015 rookie/free agent camp roster

With the season and draft over, NBA teams now turn their full attention to free agency — and with that comes summer league play. All 30 teams in the NBA field at least one team, and a few have multiple teams.

The Pacers will continue to participate in the Orlando Summer League, this year running from July 4-10. The Pacers are one of 10 teams — Orlando has two entries — who will play five games in total over the annual weeklong event.

The other seven teams: Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, and Oklahoma City Thunder.

NBA TV is scheduled to televise all of the games, and every game can also be seen on NBA.com and in the NBA mobile app for a one-time fee.

Indiana finished in third place the last two summers. Solomon Hill’s minutes last July were limited because of an ankle injury.

Leading up to the games, the Pacers will hold a free agent/rookie camp. Players will report to camp on Wednesday. Typically, they bring in about 20 players for camp and then they will trim the roster at the end of the week before flying to Orlando. Both of the team’s draft picks, Myles Turner and Joseph Young, are already in Indy.

The Pacers released their entire 14-man roster on Monday afternoon. As usual, the team will be coached by longtime Pacers assistant Dan Burke.

Guards:
Jarrell Eddie, 6-7, 218, Virginia Tech
Mantas Kalnietis, 6-5, 185, Lithuania
DaVonte Lacy, 6-4, 210, Washington State
Trent Lockett, 6-5, 209, Marquette
Jon Octeus, 6-4, 170, Purdue
Joe Young, 6-2, 180, Oregon

Forwards:
Solomon Hill, 6-7, 225, Arizona
James Nunnally, 6-7, 205, UC-Santa Barbara
Romero Osby, 6-8, 238, Oklahoma
Christian Watford, 6-9, 220, Indiana
Shayne Whittington, 6-11, 250, Western Michigan

Centers:
Arinze Onuaku, 6-9, 275, Syracuse
Matt Stainbrook, 6-10, 270, Xavier
Myles Turner, 6-11, 238, Texas

This could be a big confidence booster for Hill. … Watford was with the Pacers for Summer League in 2013. … Center Arinze Onuaku joined the Pacers in training camp last fall. … Joe Young will wear No. 1 with both his college (3) and high school (0) numbers taken by George Hill and C.J. Miles, respectively.

*Pacers forward Damjan Rudež is coming back to Indianapolis this week but will not be involved in Summer League action. He’s gearing up for National Team play with his home country, Croatia, as they try to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
