Pacers acquire Rolle in 2nd round

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers have swapped picks with Oklahoma City to get Louisiana Tech's Magnum Rolle in the second round of the NBA draft.

Indiana took Florida State's Ryan Reid with the 57th pick, then sent it to Oklahoma City, along with some cash, for Rolle. The 6-foot-11 center averaged 13.9 points and 8.4 rebounds and led the Western Athletic Conference with 2.1 blocks per game.

The 24-year-old transferred from LSU before redshirting, then having two strong seasons for the Bulldogs.

The Pacers also took Fresno State's Paul George with the No. 10 pick and Cincinnati's Lance Stephenson with the 40th pick.
