2010 NBA Draft, Tenth Pick: Pacers Select Paul George, Fresno State

The Pacers' selection of Paul George may have left you scratching your head. Who, exactly? The 6-foot-8 George played out of the national spotlight at Fresno State, but he might just have the most potential of any swingman in this year's draft. George shot well from deep, rebounded the ball well, although his playmaking skills are nonexistent. Still, he's a bit of a boom or bust pick, given the questions surrounding someone who didn't really dominate the way you'd expect a lottery pick to do at Fresno State.

The bigger issue for the Pacers is that George plays the same position -- small forward -- as their best player, Danny Granger. Unless they plan on moving one of them, it's hard to see how the two fit together long term. Look for more moves out of Indiana, if not soon, at least over the coming months.
