23rd Pick Tournament: Schroeder vs. Trade for Vet


This matchup is the best one of the tournament, by far. A colossal battle like this is finals worthy, but they meet a little earlier. Dennis Schroeder would be a major upgrade to the backup point guard position, while trading the pick is intriguing.

23rd Pick Tournament: Bullock vs. Snell


This matchup has the makings of a good one in the poll. Both of these prospects have great shooting ability and athleticism. Reggie Bullock is more seasoned, while Tony Snell has more potential. Who will win this battle and advance to the semifinals?

Isaiah Canaan has second workout with Pacers


Breaking news here on Indy Cornrows, Isaiah Canaan has a second workout with the Pacers this week. His agent, Mark Bartlestein, emailed me back about Isaiah and Indiana. He said he was in-route to Indiana now. There is big-time interest from Indiana.

23rd Pick Tournament: Ledo vs. Trade Pick for Vet


This matchup is another good one, as we wrap up the second round. Ricky Ledo, a player with star potential faces off against possibly trading the pick for a veteran. Both of these options make sense, but it is up to you on who moves on. Who wins?

This looks like it could be Indiana's biggest group workout yet, on Saturday. It will include Jeff Withey, Jamaal Franklin, Zeke Marshall, Matthew Dellavedova, and Angelo Sharpless. Withey and Franklin are the only two first rounders in play at 23.

23rd Pick Tournament: Schroeder vs. Canaan


This matchup has a pure personal preference. Would you rather have a pass-first point guard or a scoring one backing up George Hill next season? Dennis Schroeder has seen his stock slip a little bit, while Isaiah Canaan has risen. Who advances on?

23rd Pick Tournament: Snell vs. Karasev


This matchup has the making of being a great debate in the poll. Tony Snell is an athletic wing who has been compared to Paul George. Sergey Karasev has been compared to the sharp-shooting Steve Novak. Who will advance on to the quarterfinals?

This matchup features an athletic, defensive wing facing off against a scoring point guard. Either one of these prospects would be big upgrades to what is currently on the roster. Who will get your vote and move on to the quarterfinals?

23rd Pick Tournament: Dieng vs. Plumlee


This matchup is a pure battle of big men down low. Having either Gorgui Dieng or Mason Plumlee on this team could provide a player who can alter shots at the rim and a player who can run in transition. Who will receive your vote and advance on?

23rd Pick Tournament: Larkin vs. Hardaway Jr.


This matchup looks like the best so far, in my opinion. We have Shane Larkin facing off against Tim Hardaway Jr. in a battle for your vote. Would you be excited if Larkin or Hardaway Jr. were selected at 23 on draft night? Let your voice be heard.

23rd Pick Tournament: Jeff Withey vs. Trade Up


We now have started the second round of the Indy Cornrows 23rd Pick Tournament. This matchup is a good one to kick it off as we have a top defensive center, Jeff Withey, versus trading up by using Danny Granger. Who will advance to the quarterfinals?

In the Pacers fourth workout before the NBA Draft, they have one that will be key in who Indiana takes at 53. These four prospects they brought in would fill a key role off the bench for Indiana's frontcourt.

This matchup of point guards is an intriguing one for Pacers fans. Isaiah Canaan has seen his stock soar over the past few weeks, while the opposite is said for Lorenzo Brown. Both of these prospects would give much needed depth behind George Hill.
