The Pacers move one draft pick to get two high-upside talents

The Pacers and Knicks are well acquainted with each other, both playing in the Eastern conference. The Knicks aren’t potentially making a contender stronger, while moving off of players they are underutilizing currently.

In the proposed trade, the Indiana Pacers send two players away as well as a future first-round pick via Boston in return for two young players that are seemingly not living up to their potential in New York.

The Knicks get some much needed draft capital, the worst first-round pick of the Pacers’ three picks next year as well as a unique player in Terry Taylor. Additionally, they get an unproven center in Goga Bitadze that has struggled to find time in Indiana.

The Pacers get two upside players, both of which have floors as rotational players. In addition, they exchange the value of one of their first-round picks next year, which they won’t have ability to sign all of anyway, for young players that fit their timeline and have the ability to improve.
