Oladipo enjoying new go-to role with Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS – When Victor Oladipo arrived on the Indiana University campus in the summer of 2010, very few players on his team even knew that much about him.

2 overall pick in the NBA Draft of the Orlando Magic in 2013 and a guy who had been a serviceable role player in four seasons in the league, but no one knew how much of an impact he would have with the Pacers.

“I’ll admit he surprised me at first in training camp, and then it was one of those things where you thought, let’s see how he does in the season,’’ said Pacers point guard Cory Joseph.

“I knew him from playing against him in the Big Ten, but he is obviously a guy who has made strides every single year,’’ said Robinson.

In his first four seasons in the NBA – three with Orlando and one with Oklahoma City – Oladipo averaged 15.9 points and shot 34.6 percent from the field.

It’s a learning process,’’ Oladipo said Saturday, leaning against a wall at the St. Vincent Center, Indiana’s state-of-the-art practice facility.

There was a time not too long ago when those around the NBA were stunned Indiana had allowed All-Star Paul George to get away for two players such as Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
