INDIANAPOLIS – As with every summer, the Pacers’ summer league teams usually feature a collection of current players, developmental league prospects, rookies and even a few local favorites.
The same protocol was followed in 2013 as the team announced their roster for summer league games on Monday afternoon in Orlando starting this Sunday and running through July 12th.
Former Indiana forward Christian Watford-who worked out for the Pacers in June-will be on the roster along with former Brownsburg High School star Julian Mavunga.
Number one draft pick Solomon Hill is on the 19-player roster along with three players who saw time on the Pacers’ active roster during the 2012-2013 season-Ben Hansbrough, Orlando Johnson and Miles Plumlee. Point guard Jonny Flynn-the sixth-overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft-is also on the team along with Donald Sloan, who saw playing time with the New Orleans Pelicans last year.
Others on the roster include: F Rasual Butler, C Chris Daniels, G Micah Downs, G Austin Freeman, G Steven Gray, F Justin Harper, F Ron Howard, C Jerome Johnson, G Travis Releford, F Djibril Thiam, and F Chris Wright.
