Pacers reporter for the Indianapolis Star J. Michael joins the show today as Mike Wells and Kevin Bowen fill in for DD.  He recaps game 1 of the NBA Finals and gives his takes and predictions for what he is looking forward to in the rest of the series of the Warriors and Raptors.  He then talks about what he expects to see out of the Indiana Pacers in the offseason as they begin to get near the NBA Draft and free agency.

Looking at the newly shaped central division, how agressive should Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard be in free agency? 

"I would be more agressive in free agency because the players that you get in free agency are going to help you more immediately than the ones in the draft.  That's generally a rule of thumb but I think especially this year because after you get past the first four guys in this year draft its a craps shoot.  The one thing that I haven't gotten looking at the different guys and there is a lot of ya, but guys.  So I don't think this draft year where the Pacers at 18th should but I would be really shocked if they traded up to the 10th spot to get someone and gave up an assett because it is so unpredictable after the first few guys.  I don't think its worth it so I would say the move would be free agency where there is some pretty good players in the market.  Then you have some guys that are restricted like D'Angelo Russell and I don't necessarily we would go after him or he would fit.  But Chris Middleton and some other Milwaukee guys.  There are alot of good players and think they should be agressive because Pacers have so much capital.  That capital gives you the ability to start signing players"
