George Hill was traded to the Pacers for the 15th overall pick Kawhi Leonard and the  42 overall pick.. Davis Bertans. Hill went to Broad Ripple High School and graduated from I-U-P-U-I.

Other Hoosiers had their share of the spotlight during the draft. Butler University star Shelvin Mack was drafted in the second round to the Washington Wizards. His teammate Matt Howard is still waiting to be drafted. Purdue star JuJuan Johnson was traded to the Boston Celtics after being drafted by the New Jersey Nets.
