What are the Pacers’ options if they want to pursue a Cam Reddish trade?

OPTION A: The Pacers send two second-rounders upfront.

Here, the Indiana Pacers land Cam Reddish with an upfront offer of two second-round picks, which is the rumored asking price by the New York Knicks for the wingman. With a slew of first-round selections (and an extra second-rounder) this year, the team will really not feel the loss of a potentially dispensable second-round selection.

OPTION B: The Pacers do another exchange of young prospects

Alternatively, the Pacers can use the Reddish trade as a conduit for them to snag another project from the Knicks in the form of Obi Toppin. While the forward currently finds himself out of Thibodeau’s rotation, his athleticism and all-around upside makes him an interesting prospect next to Tyrese Haliburton.

Trading Chris Duarte, who has struggled a lot this season, may not even make Indiana flinch as much, especially with the team having success without him carving a significant role. Dangling away San Antonio’s owed second-rounder to the Pacers, projected to be a relatively high selection, will be the cherry on top.
