NBA Analysis Network

There have been numerous rumors already this NBA offseason about the Indiana Pacers looking to shake up their roster. Myles Turner has been mentioned the most, but he is not the only player Indiana has that could be on the move.

Aaron Holiday and Jeremy Lamb are two more players that could be on the move this offseason. The Pacers also were reportedly the first team to make an offer to the Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons, offering Malcolm Brogdon and the No. 13 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

While they were rebuffed by the 76ers, it is clear that the Pacers are looking to make some moves in the summer. If they are serious about moving on from Brogdon, they will find a strong market for him.

Brogdon is coming off the best scoring season of his career as he averaged 21.2 points per game in the 2020-21 season. He is an efficient shooter, making 45.3 percent of his shots overall last season and 38.8 percent from the 3-point line.
