The Indiana Pacers have been thrown into too many rumors to sit on their hands over the course of the year. It is unknown if they will want to make a move before the start of the regular season but there is always the NBA trade deadline. If the team starts out slow, they could put some of their big names on the block.
This has seemed to begin with Myles Turner. The big man led the league in blocks a season ago and proved to be a defensive anchor. The Pacers are set down low with a Domantas Sabonis turning into an all-star caliber forward.
It will be interesting to see the team’s direction after what was an underwhelming regular season that saw the team miss the playoffs. This is not where the Pacers are used to being in the Eastern Conference in there could be some changes on the horizon.
The Charlotte Hornets continue to be an organization that should be in on any big man potentially available. Charlotte has been aggressive in improving the backcourt over the years, and they have done so with the likes of Terry Rozier and LaMelo Ball.
