Larry Bird Discusses Upcoming NBA Draft

Posted by Pacers Boy On June - 23 - 2009

The Indiana Pacers are playing it smart once again. Subtle hints about who they are interested in, but Larry Bird is keeping a lot of the behind the scenes talk secret . . . and for good reason. It’s hard to imagine that this years draft will be as exciting as the 2008 NBA Draft, but Larry did mention that he would like four or five new players.

Another team looking for some creative draft moves are the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls have been talking to the Pacers, Nets and Bobcats about trading their No. 16 and No. 26 picks for a higher draft pick.

13th vs 16th (and the 26th pick)? . . . I say we take the deal, but hopefully Larry Bird will somehow come up with something even better.

For the money, he can’t be beat. Travis probably wouldn’t like the nickname, but I like to think of him as “mini-Foster.” He is solid, aggressive and always tries harder than guys twice as big.

The Indianapolis Star reported today that Travis will thankfully return next season.
