Larry Bird Discusses NBA Draft

Last updated on Tuesday, June 23, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird met with the media on Monday to discuss Thursday night’s NBA draft.

The Pacers currently have the 13th and 52nd picks in the draft.

Bird says he's weighing his options regarding pre-draft trades, but feels they will be able to fulfill a need if they hang on to the 13th pick.

Bird says the Pacers are entering the draft looking for a point guard, a wing player and a big man.

While Indiana does have financial limitations, Bird does think the team will be a player when free agency begins next month.
