Call me crazy, I just wasn't that impressed with Bayless.
It wasn't anything objective, but I just don't have a good feeling about him.

The Pacers were looking for more finished products even if they had lower ceilings.

With O'brien's system, there's probably going to be a fair amount of small ball as well with one of the lumbering 4 along with PG, Dunleavy, Granger, and Rush all seeing the floor.

Much like McHale taking Mayo and trading him. The Pacers drafted the guy with the most value, than traded him for the guy they had been eyeing all along and got some extra stuff.
