(BROOKLYN, NY) - The Indiana Pacers made the most of their two selections in last night's NBA Draft as they took UCLA point guard Aaron Holiday with the 23rd overall pick and Missouri State forward Alize Johnson with the 50th overall pick.

Holiday is the younger brother of NBA players Jrue and Justin and averaged 20.3 points, 5.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds during his junior season with the Bruins.

Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard said Holiday reminds them of Darren Collison.

"We see a lot of similarities," he said.

With the 50th pick, the Pacers took the 6-foot-nine Johnson, who averaged 14.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in his two years with Missouri State.

The Pacers will officially introduce Aaron Holiday in a press conference Friday at 2pm EST.
