After a couple of weeks of preseason action, the Indiana Pacers roster for the 2022-23 regular season is now set after the team made its last-minute roster cuts with the training camp now over.

On Friday, the Pacers made the decision to waive veteran guard Langston Galloway and forward Deividas Sirvydis, leaving the team with a full roster consisting of 15 full-time players and a couple of two-way prospects with the regular season set to begin this week.

The 2022-23 Indiana Pacers roster is now set heading to the regular season

Here is an updated look at the Pacers’ roster:

Guards: Tyrese Haliburton, TJ McConnell, Andrew Nembhard

Wings: Chris Duarte, Buddy Hield, Bennedict Mathurin, Aaron Nesmith, Trevelin Queen (two-way)

Forwards: Oshae Brissett, Terry Taylor, James Johnson, Kendall Brown (two-way)

Bigs: Jalen Smith, Myles Turner, Isaiah Jackson, Daniel Theis, Goga Bitadze

With just a few days before Indiana opens the season at home against the Washington Wizards, the roster should remain intact for the time being, though things could quickly and drastically change if the rumor mill further heats up and the Pacers get caught up in the middle, just like they have been in recent months.

Overall, while this is undoubtedly a developmental team, the Pacers could still surprise some people with this squad, as the team still banners some key veterans in addition to their growing collection of high-upside talents, though that could prove to be adverse to the expected direction of the franchise, which is to build through the draft for the meantime.

Anyway, the 2022-23 NBA season will be underway in a flick, and Indiana Pacers fans should be in for a good rollercoaster year in what figures to be an extraordinary campaign for the franchise to signal a new era of basketball in the Circle City.
