The Indiana Pacers play it safe if they get the 4th pick in the NBA Draft Lottery

Odds: 1.7 percent

Best Prospect: Jalen Green

Jalen Green, one the standouts in the NBA G-League Ignite, is a scorer in every sense of the word. His wide array of moves which is as expansive as anyone in the league, using his athleticism to supercharge his offensive arsenal. He is both fluid and explosive in his game despite his below average defense and thin frame.

Among his peers, Green is one of the safest bets to lead all rookies in scoring and contend for the Rookie of the Year hardware. If the Indiana Pacers were to acquire the 4th overall pick, they should go for the safest player at that point. While Jonathan Kuminga should also be an intriguing option with his wonderful defense, the leap may be higher with Green.

Next to the likes of Brogdon, LeVert, Warren and Sabonis, the Pacers can mobilize a five-man lineup with Suggs who can each score 20 on a nightly basis. While the defense needs a lot more attention after the recently-concluded season, a more stabilized lineup with less injuries and a new coach should be able to take care of it.
