The Indiana Pacers are one team that was aggressive looking to make a deal during the NBA offseason. They were the first team connected to the Philadelphia 76ers in Ben Simmons trade rumors and were rumored to have been engaged in trade talks right up until the start of the regular season as well.
While no deal was completed for Simmons, the Pacers are a team that could be in the market for a deal during the regular season. They have a few players they were shopping during the offseason, including center Myles Turner.
Indiana has been looking to trade Turner for more than two years now; could this be the season that it finally happens?
The organization has been going back and forth about whether or not they should break up their jumbo frontcourt pairing Turner and Domantas Sabonis during that time.
