The Pacers could potentially discuss trades on Myles Turner this summer
The Indiana Pacers could very well make a trade this summer. While most outlets will buzz the most about the availability of Victor Oladipo (it’s not happening, folks), the team realistically could make some transactions in a truncated offseason after standing pat at the 2019 trade deadline.
This season has unfolded in such a way that the team has a logjam at the center position. Domantas Sabonis was launched into the starting unit and performed at a level higher than anyone expected.
Myles Turner on the surface appears to have struggled. When you consider though that he wasn’t even told he would be upping his 3-pointers by over 20 percent this season until he arrived at training camp, it’s easy to see why he’s hit some speed bumps.
Still, even though his scoring has gone down, Turner has spaced the floor for Sabonis even when he’s missing threes. His willingness to take them is huge. Furthermore, his defensive game is as good as ever.
I discussed recently the fact that the Pacers shouldn’t be discussing trading Oladipo as has been mentioned around the NBA world as of late, but how they should still talk to the Miami Heat to see if they have interest in Myles Turner.
Let’s see what a trade could look like.
