Can the Jazz become the Pacers?

If so, how long will it take? Let's look at some comparisons...

T. Burke 6'1/190 (rookie / 9th pick)
13.6 ppg, 5.6 ast, 3.3 reb
George Hill 6'3/188 (5th yr / 26th pick)
10.7 ppg, 3.3 ast, 3.6 reb

A. Burks 6'6/211 (2nd yr / 12th pick)
13.0 ppg, 2.7 ast, 3.2 reb
L. Stevenson 6'5/230 (3rd yr / 40th pick)
13.3 ppg, 5.2 ast, 6.7 reb

G. Hayward 6'8/220 (3rd yr / 9th pick)
17.1 ppg, 4.9 ast, 5.4 reb
P. George 6'9/220 (3rd yr / 10th pick)
22.8 ppg, 3.6 ast, 6.2 reb

D. Favors 6'10/268 (3rd yr / 3rd pick)
13.8 ppg, 9.0 reb, 1.3 blk
D. West 6'9/250 (10th yr / 18th pick)
12.5 ppg, 6.9 reb, .9 blk

E. Kanter 6'11/250 (2nd yr / 3rd pick)
11.4 ppg, 6.2 reb, .7 blk
R. Hibbert 7'2/290 (5th yr / 17th pick)
12.4 ppg, 7.8 reb, 2.6 blk

Burke has slightly more points and assists than Hill

Stevenson has more assists and rebounds than Burks

P George has 5 more ppg than Hayward

Favors has more rebounds and blocks than West

Hibbert has a decent size advantage over Kanter and has more blocks

JAZZ only has 11 total yrs of experience with this roster compared to Indiana's 26

All 5 of Utah's players were picked 12th or better in the draft. P George is their only top 10 draft pick

This information should either be disturbing or exciting. I'm going with exciting. Let's cross our fingers for a successful draft and free agency this summer.

I would like a substantial upgrade at backup PG (maybe Raul Neto will return), resign B Rush, draft Jabari Parker or Doug McDermott at SF (or pick up Danny Granger in free agency), upgrade backup PF, and develop Rudy Gobert as a solid backup C
