Forward. Jarace Walker. player. 100. . Houston. 7.

The Pacers have long lacked a modern forward to pair next to Myles Turner. Hence, drafting Jarace Walker naturally makes sense, as the Houston standout boasts a high motor and an NBA-ready physique. He’s pretty disruptive on D, which can help elevate the ceiling of the team’s putrid team defense. His three-point shot needs work, but his face-up game should pair well next to a stretch big like Turner and a pick-and-roll maestro in Tyrese Haliburton. — Nicolas Kyle Pring, 8 Points, 9 Seconds
