The Pacers are in a prime position to take advantage of unhappy superstars in the league. The newest face of unhappiness in the NBA is Kyrie Irving who has requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets after the team failed to come to an agreement on an extension.

The Pacers could potentially get involved. Not because they would have any interest in actually acquiring Irving, but because they have cap space and extra draft capital that could be used to facilitate a trade between the Brooklyn Nets and a potential suitor, of which Shams is reporting there are many.

So in what ways would the Pacers act as facilitators and what should the Pacers be looking for? Well it’s no secret that the Pacers have quite a few draft picks and some extra money to spend. So we decided to show you a simple way the Pacers could facilitate a trade to the Suns of Kyrie Irving and all three franchises end up winning. This is how the trade could potentially look.
