The Indiana Pacers brought back T.J. McConnell and signed Torrey Craig in free agency, but the Pacers did lose Doug McDermott to the San Antonio Spurs, which could end up being a bigger loss than imagined. Otherwise, the Pacers were not busy this NBA offseason.
The Pacers also drafted Chris Duarte and Isaiah Jackson in the first round while moving young guard Aaron Holiday to the Wizards for the rights to Jackson.
When you look at this roster as a whole, you cannot help but notice that their starting unit of Brogdon, LeVert, Warren, Sabonis, and Turner is highly talented. Still, this rotation has not played together at all due to injuries.
Every single one of these guys missed time last season, and T.J. Warren still is not back, as the Indiana Pacers announced on September 7 that Warren is still recovering from a stress fracture in his foot and is still sidelined indefinitely.
If Warren is out to begin the season and the “injury bug” continues to wreak havoc on this roster, then the Pacers could very well scramble for answers, ultimately forcing them to move big man Myles Turner.
