The Pacers also announced Monday that center Luke Nevill (Photos) along with guards Sundiata Gaines (Photos) and Blake Ahearn (Photos) have been released, putting the Pacers’ roster at 15. Nevill saw limited game action in two games, scoring one basket. Gaines also played in two games, scoring four points, and Ahearn played in three games, scoring five points.
The Pacers have finalized their training camp roster barring any last-minute changes before their first practice on Oct. 2. Media day is Oct. 1. Center Luke Nevill, who played at Utah, and guard Ben Hansbrough, the little brother of Tyler Hansbrough, will round out the training camp roster.
The NBA’s Houston Rockets are scouting Melbourne Tigers Luke Nevill and Eric Devendorf. While that might be surprising given the Tigers’ 2-8 start to the NBL season and neither player has taken the league by storm, the NBA scouting network is massive and that league’s needs can be different to what works in Australia. Rockets scout David Patrick, a former Tigers junior who played in the NBL with Canberra Cannons, is in Australia checking on players and will be at The Cage tomorrow night to see Nevill and Devendorf play against the New Zealand Breakers.
