Scouting report
Theis has yet to play this season after he was acquired from the Celtics in July along with Nesmith and others for point guard Malcolm Brogdon. Theis has been dealing with knee issues for years and had another surgery in November. The 6-8, 245-pounder could help a Pacers frontcourt that could use size, however, and Carlisle said they aren’t far from getting him back on the floor. He averaged 7.9 points and 4.7 rebounds off the bench for the Celtics last season, helping them to the Eastern Conference title. “I don’t know that there’s any real set, hard timetable on Theis’ availability to play in a game,” Carlisle said, “but he’s weeks, not months away. That’s good news.”
“That was our goal. When we came together this summer with everybody, we said the medal is our goal. Obviously, when you go to the semifinal, you want to go to the final to play for gold. We were disappointed after the loss, but we achieved our goal”, he said about the 82-69 victory. As he explained, this can really be the start of an important growth project for Germany. “We want to play successful basketball with the national team. Like we always said, we’ve gotta respect everybody we play, but we’re not scared: now people and teams have to respect us too. We’ve got a great team: we showed it this tournament, and hopefully for more years to come”.
