The Indiana Pacers, who are curently in the middle of a four-game winning streak that helped them regain a secured footing in the playoff picture out East, are beginning to look unlikely to trade the likes of Myles Turner and Buddy Hield, as both veterans are proving to be perfect fits next to the team’s younger core players.

However, the rumor mill doesn’t seem to align with that at all. In fact, one ESPN writer bared a potential sleeper team that could eventually find themselves engaging the Pacers on a Turner trade.

ESPN reveals potential sleeper for Myles Turner trade with the Indiana Pacers

In a recent podcast episode of “The Lowe Post,” ESPN’s Zach Lowe and Tim MacMahon broke down potential scenarios surrounding the Houston Rockets and the rumored possibility of James Harden returning to the H-Town in the offseason.

Lowe mentioned in his pod that Houston could potentially zero in on Myles Turner as either a trade candidate or a player to pursue via free agency, though he expressed uncertainty as to how realistic that track could be for the Rockets.

Let’s zoom in on how a trade framework between the Pacers and the Rockets could look like around Turner and use that as a benchmark on whether Indiana should eventually yield if Houston comes calling.
