Which former Indiana Pacers would be solid additions in 2021?

The Indiana Pacers head into the 2021 offseason with a chance at success next season if they make the right moves. With a solid roster featuring a two-time All-Star in Domantas Sabonis, a handful of scoring threats on offense, and a DPOY candidate in Myles Turner, the Pacers are only a few pieces – and health – away from competing.

Some of the moves they need to make will be tough considering their lack of cap space and desire to trade key pieces. If they refuse to move Sabonis or Turner in hopes that Rick Carlisle can finally make it work, the Pacers will be left with some questions on both ends of the floor.

The best way for Indiana to get better this summer is to trade one of the centers to better fit the NBA and add depth on the wing. However, it is not the end of the world if the Pacers decide to keep both bigs and add pieces around them that make sense.

Instead of shelling out big money for free agents that can alter the landscape of the franchise, what if the Pacers try to bring back some old friends? There are a handful of veterans who have spent time in Indiana that could be vital pieces in 2021.
