Nevertheless, a quick update. Frank Vogel is still not confirmed as the new full time head coach, but one thing is for certain: the new coach won't be former Pacer Mark Jackson (who led the Pacers to their only finals appearance in 2000 along with Reggie and Rik Smits). Jackson, who has no previous coaching experience, was hired to be the head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
And no, the Pacers never reached out to him.
On the draft front, not much happening. Many believe the Pacers will trade the pick or trade down in the draft, given how weak it is, or go for a knockout punch/potential bust like BYU's Jimmer Fredette, if he is still available.
More to come.
