With the No. 26 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Indiana Pacers selected Miles Plumlee from Duke.
Plumlee is a near 7-footer who anchored the middle for the Blue Devils for (most of) four years. He figures to contribute primarily on defense in the NBA and he'll back up Roy Hibbert, Indiana's All-Star center. That's a strong position for a player like Plumlee to come into.
Also of note: he'll play alongside Tyler Hansbrough, former North Carolina star. Hibbert, a Georgetown product, may need to mediate.
Plumlee is the second Duke player taken in 2012. Austin Rivers was the No. 10 pick. He'll play for the New Orleans Hornets. Plumlee's brother, Mason, also of Duke, is expected to be a first-round pick next year.
