    2009 Indiana Pacers Rookie/Free Agent Roster

    CHICAGO- Former UIC center Scott VanderMeer (Dyer, Ind./Lake Central H.S.) was picked up by the Indiana Pacers for the upcoming NBA Orlando Pro Summer League.

    VanderMeer will team up with fellow rookies such as Tyler Hansbrough of North Carolina and A.J. Price of Connecticut, as well as notable second-year players such as Brandon Rush and Roy Hibbert, on the Pacers' summer league squad that will head to Orlando for five games from July 6-10.

    The three-year UIC letterwinner will don the number 48 for the Pacers.

    VanderMeer averaged 11.9 ppg and finished 2008-09 as the Horizon League leader in rebounding (8.9 rpg) and blocked shots (2.5 bpg), the second consecutive season he led the conference in both categories.

    The three-time Horizon League All-Defensive Team selection holds school and league records for blocked shots in a career (273 from 2006-2009), in a season (111 in 2006-07) and in a single game (nine vs. Cleveland State on Jan. 27, 2007).
