It's unclear if the impending NBA lockout is causing teams to hold more free agent workouts or I'm just hearing about them for the first time this offseason, but the Indiana Pacers became the latest team to invite non-rookies in for a look-see this week.
The Pacers are holding a two-day free agent camp that began Monday and will wrap up Tuesday afternoon. Through a source with knowledge of the workout, Ridiculous Upside has a partial list of the invitees.
The guard prospects included Bobby Brown, Matt Janning, Javaris Crittenton and Sylven Landesberg. The wings participating include NBA veterans James White (better known as "Flight" because he can do this), DeMarre Carroll and Ime Udoka. As far as big men go, Rob Kurz, Leo Lyons, Chris Daniels and Trent Plaisted were all in attendance on Monday.
It's interesting that Indiana native Bonzi Wells wasn't included on the list considering he's currently attempting an NBA comeback, but my list is probably missing a few names. Teams have been unusually secretive when it comes to offseason workouts, but it's the most complete (read: only) list currently available on the internet so it'll have to do.
The Pacers didn't skimp on names as all but Landesberg, Lyons, Daniels and Plaisted have prior NBA experience and Plaisted was a second-round pick in the 2008 NBA Draft and Janning, Carroll and Udoka all logged NBA time this past season.
All of the listed players should be in NBA camps this Fall as long as they aren't scared overseas by the lockout talk.
