Luke Kennard pays a visit to the Indiana Pacers

Luke Kennard’s latest stop on his NBA pre-draft tour took him to Indiana on Monday.

The Franklin High School product and former Duke star worked out for the Pacers, who have the 18th pick in the first round.

Asked if Indy felt like home, he said, “A little bit.”

“The drive was like two hours – not far at all,” Kennard told the team website afterward. “I’ve been here a few times throughout my childhood and it’s a really nice place.”

Early NBA mock drafts had Kennard going anywhere from late in the lottery to the early 20s.

One published today by SECCountry matched him with Oklahoma City at No. 21.

Kennard declared for the draft following a sophomore season in which he was the Blue Devils’ leading scorer and made the All-ACC first team.
