Indiana Pacers Make Draft-Night Trade for Hometown Product George Hill

The Indiana Pacers made a huge splash for their organization and for their city’s fan base Thursday at the NBA Draft.

The Pacers traded the rights to the No. 15 pick, which turned out to be San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard, as well as the rights to the No. 42 pick (Davis Bertans) and 2005 pick Erazem Lorbek, to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Indianapolis native George Hill, a Broad Ripple High School and IUPUI product.

Needless to say, Indiana and its local fans are thrilled about this pick, and they should be.
