NBA Draft Tonight

Last updated on Thursday, June 25, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The NBA draft takes place tonight in New York City.

The Indiana Pacers are finalizing their plans as they hold the 13th and 52nd overall picks.

Team president Larry Bird said at his annual pre-draft news conference on Monday that the Pacers are looking for help at point guard, on the wing and down low at either center or power forward.

Bird added that while the team was working on potential deals before tonight's draft, he is confident that they will fill a need with the players who fall to them at number 13.

The 13th selection in last year's draft was Brandon Rush, who came to the Pacers in a draft-night deal with Portland.
