A player that could set up the Pacers franchise for the next decade plus.
While Jarace Walker could have had a better showing in the tournament, many still feel that he is a top five pick, and the player that the Pacers may ultimately go for. Walker sits among other power forwards that could be potential pickups for the Pacers with Brandon Miller and Cam Whitmore being two of the other big names on the draft board.
Walker can shoot effectively from behind the arc and allow for the defense to be strechted more than dnormal but Walker about is able to defend at an incredibly high level. Having Turner and Walker together on the court playing defense could prove the Pacers to have one of the best defensive units in the league (especially if we can get Haliburton and Mathurin to defend as they should).
Additionally. Walker has the size to be able to playin the NBA already, which is something the Pacers have desperately needed. Oftentimes the Pacer are using either a converted center or a small forward and then consistently get burnt on the defensive side of the ball.
