Shayne Whittington averaged 16.1 points ans 8.9 rebounds last year for the Western Michigan Broncos.
He has also been durable starting every game of his junior and senior seasons in Kalamazoo. That is until he injured his knee in May.
Whittington was the 77th best draft prospect according to Draft Express but the injury likely cost him being selected in the draft. That said the Pacers must see value in him as a project and will be keeping him out of summer developmental league and training camp.
When Shayne Whittington is available he will join a crowded Pacers front court that already includes Roy Hibbert, Ian Mahinmi, David West, Luis Socia, Chris Copeland and Damjan Rudez.
