Croatian center Stanko Barac to get workout

Pacers to give big man a look during June mini-camp.

The Indiana Pacers are reportedly bringing in unsigned draft acquisition Stanko Barac for June mini-camp workouts, according to RealGM.com, which cited league sources in its report.

The 7-foot-2 center from Croatia was acquired from the Miami Heat in 2007 after being selected with the 39th overall pick.

Barac has reportedly decided to give the NBA a look. He’s playing with Cedevita in the Euroleague.

The Pacers are reportedly going to use mini-camp to decide if Barac is worthy of being signed to a contract or included in a trade, sources said. The Pacers’ mini-camp workouts are June 13-18.

Barac, 28, scored 27 points and grabbed seven rebounds in a game against Zagrab last week. He’s averaging 9.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

He’s played professionally for Baskonia, Valencia, Efes and Cedevita.

The Pacers are expected to be looking at improving their size this offseason. Center Roy Hibbert and forward David West are entering the final years of their contract, presuming they take the team up on their last-year player options.
