While Gonzaga Bulldogs fans got a first look at Chet Holmgren and his new home in Oklahoma City, it will be at least a couple more days until Andrew Nembhard makes his summer league debut since the Indiana Pacers don’t play until July 8.
That doesn’t mean fans cannot get a glance at how Nembhard looks in his new digs, however, with the Pacers revealing the jersey number for each of the three rookies in a tweet on Wednesday morning:
Nembhard is set to don No. 2 for Indiana, while Tommy Lloyd-coached Benn Mathurin out of Arizona rocks the 00.
No. 2 hasn’t been a particularly fruitful number for former Pacers, although Eastern Washington alumni Rodney Stuckey (2015-2017) as well as UCLA alumnus Darren Collison (2011-2019) and Earl Watson (2010) all donned numero dos over the past decade.
Nembhard should see a solid role in year one for the Pacers, especially after the team sent Malcolm Brogdon to Boston shortly after the draft.
