Brandon Miller, from a playing standpoint, would be a great fit with the Indiana Pacers.

It almost seems laughable to have to analyze this, but Miller would be an absolute perfect match for the Pacers. He would fill a void that we have had for many years in trying to have a natural power forward at the four spot. In the last five years, it seems that we always have both offensive and defensive liabilities at the four spot, and Miller could go a long way in solving those.

The starting five of the Pacers would look something like this:

  • Tyrese Haliburton, PG
  • Bennedict Mathurin, SG
  • Aaron Nesmith/Buddy Hield, SF/SG
  • Brandon Miller, PF
  • Myles Turner, C

That is a dynamite starting lineup and one that Pacers’ fans would be incredibly excited about, me included. It’s entirely possible that this type of lineup could quickly rise towards the top of the eastern conference, especially with the amount of depth on the bench in Nwora, Duarte, Nesmith/Hield, and Nembhard. That’s not even mentioning the potential of a player like Isaiah Jackson.
