Ike Diogu, Marquis Daniels and Shawne Williams all have a world of potential but they each have rough edges in their games that need refined. Ike Diogu was the key in the big trade with the Warriors last season. He is a potential starting power forward in the NBA and he probably is a better player than starter Troy Murphy but he likely won’t get a chance to show that this season. Diogu played in 59 games (2 starts) for the Warriors and Pacers last season and he averaged 12.9 minutes, 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game. Marquis Daniels also has the skills to be a starter but issues off of the court have hampered his development as a player. He played in 45 games (4 starts) last season for the Pacers and he averaged 17.8 minutes, 7.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. Shawne Williams showed off his potential at the end of last season but he’s also a very immature person which hurts his game on and off the court. He played in 46 games (3 starts) as a rookie last season and he averaged 12.1 minutes, 3.9 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. Jeff Foster will back up at both center and power forward for the Pacers and he’s a banger. His game is defense and rebounding and he does a good job of that. He played in 75 games (43 starts) last season for the Pacers and he averaged 23.2 minutes, 4.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Travis Diener was brought to back up Jamaal Tinsley at point guard. He only played in 26 games (0 starts) last season for the Magic and he averaged 11.1 minutes, 3.8 points, 0.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. David Harrison will also back up at power forward and center for the Pacers. He played in 24 games (2 starts) for the Pacers last season and he averaged 7.9 minutes, 3.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. Shooting guard Kareem Rush played last season overseas but the Pacers like him as a shooter. He has played in 243 games (62 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 17.3 minutes, 6.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game.
