The Indiana Pacers continue to be linked in trade rumors. One of the biggest of which is with the Atlanta Hawks and acquiring forward John Collins.

The forward spot has been of big concern for the Pacers for years now, and one in which there are a lot of talented players to compete with if the Pacers ever want to make a run at being true title contenders.

In Atlanta, there are reports of potential turmoil. If Trae Young is unhappy with the organization, perhaps there will be an opening for the Pacers to swoop in and find value.

Multiple reports have continued to link John Collins rumors to the Pacers:

With all of these reports coming out, the question begs, is there a good trade between these two teams that would be worthwhile? Could the Pacers make a run at John Collins without compromising their future prospects as well as giving up too much in return for the promising big man.

We take a look at one potential trade that could send Collins to the Pacers without compromising too much in return of future value.
