INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Pacers selected Louis Labeyrie in the second round with the 57th overall pick of the NBA draft Thursday night - and then turned around and sent the 6-foot-10 forward to the New York Knicks for cash.
After winning the Central Division for the second straight year, the Pacers entered the draft with just a single pick and came away with no new players.
They gave up their first-round selection in a 2013 offseason trade that sent forward Luis Scola to Indiana from Phoenix for Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee and the first-round pick.
Labeyrie last played for Paris-Levallois in the French ProA league and averaged 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24 games.
