Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies are currently battling with the Golden State Warriors for a place in the Conference Finals. The Grizzlies were the surprise of the NBA this season, finishing second in the NBA record-wise. Still, they might benefit from an upgrade at center.
The Indiana Pacers, meanwhile, descended this season from playoff hopefuls to bottom-dwellers. The Pacers traded away PF/C Domantas Sabonis mid-season, and are looking to build around young guard Tyrese Haliburton.
Pacers center Myles Turner has been the focus of trade rumors for years. His combination of three-point shooting and rim protection makes him a rare breed in the NBA.
Turner would be the perfect fit in Memphis, forming a towering defensive duo with Jaren Jackson Jr. while making up for Ja Morant’s lack of outside shooting on offense.
