A trade to benefit both franchises

Our friends over at HoopsHabit have proposed a trade between the two teams. And it goes as follows:

The Nets would get Myles Turner to help the team on the defensive side of the ball. Since Durant and company joined Brooklyn the Nets have been a historically bad defense. Oftentimes they can make up for it with amazing offense, but this move would help to balance out the two sides of the ball.

The Pacers would get Joe Harris, an overpriced player with one more year on his deal. It would be a way to utilize salary cap space, and would add shooting in the short term. Cam Thomas is a young player that the jury is still out on. He could develop into a solid rotational player or be a trade-worthy piece in the coming years.

The prize of the trade is a 2027 unprotected first-round pick, which is the ultimate asking price for either Turner or Hield to get moved.
