Indiana Pacers take UCLA point guard Aaron Holiday at No. 23

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indiana Pacers selected UCLA point guard Aaron Holiday with the 23rd overall pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday night.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Holiday, who averaged 20.3 points and 5.8 assists for the Bruins last season, joins a promising young team that forced eventual Eastern Conference champion Cleveland to seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

Most analysts thought the Pacers would be a lottery team after trading All-Star Paul George to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis in July. Instead, Oladipo made his first All-Star appearance, led Indiana to 48 wins and was named one of three finalists for the NBA's Most Improved Player award. Sabonis also emerged as a valuable piece off the bench in his second NBA season.
