The Indiana Pacers have gotten off to a good start during the NBA restart in Orlando, but at this point are still not getting love as a potential contender in the Eastern Conference. Even though they are still very much in the mix of the season, Kevin Pritchard and company have a big offseason ahead of them.
Pritchard will have some tough decisions to make. No one truly knows what to expect from Victor Oladipo and his long-term future with the Pacers. He has not indicated anything one way or the other.
Another question that will need to be answered is whether or not the Pacers are going to explore the trade market for big man Myles Turner.
Turner has been starting alongside Domantas Sabonis in the Indiana front-court this season. At times, the pairing has worked beautifully. But, there are quite a few who are expecting the Pacers to move on from Turner via trade this offseason.
So far this season in 58 games, Turner has averaged 12.0 points per game to go along with 6.5 rebounds and 2.2 blocks. He has shot 46 percent from the field overall and has knocked down 35.3 percent of his three-point attempts.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at some pros and cons of the Pacers potentially dealing their young center this offseason.
