As it was reported yesterday, former Indiana basketball forward Trayce Jackson-Davis worked out with his hometown team, the Indiana Pacers, earlier today as part of his pre-draft workout schedule.

Jackson-Davis worked out alongside Arizona forward Azuolas Tubelis, NC State guard Terquavion Smith, Kentucky wing Chris Livingston, Western Kentucky wing Emmanuel Akot, and Wake Forest guard Tyree Appleby.

This past season, Trayce Jackson-Davis averaged 20.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.9 blocks per game. He was a consensus First-Team All-American and unanimous First-Team All-Big Ten selection. He was also the Karl Malone Award winner for the top power forward in the country.

He also finished his Indiana basketball career as the program’s all-time leader in rebounds (1,143) and blocked shots (270) and was third in scoring (2,258) and double-doubles (50) thus cementing his legacy as one of the all-time Hoosier greats.

“It was the Lord’s plan, honestly,” Jackson-Davis told Andy Katz at the Combine. “Being with coach Woodson and talking to him and having him in my corner, it was a great experience. I trusted the process and I’ve benefited from it.”

As it stands right now, Trayce Jackson-Davis is currently projected as a late first-round to early second-round draft pick. The Indiana Pacers currently hold five picks in the upcoming draft, including the 26th, 29th and 32nd selections and with them needing more frontcourt depth, there is certainly a scenario where the Pacers look to take Jackson-Davis.
