The media as well as the fans both are talking about this as a legitimate option for the Dallas Mavericks.

Turner is currently on a team friendly contract for the next two years given he took a large payday this season to compensate for the offset. Because of this, many teams that are cash strapped such as the Dallas Mavericks, see him as an even more valuable asset to acquire. The local media as well as national outlets are discussing the possibility of Turner moving back home to Dallas.

But fans are also increasingly buying into the delusion that Turner may eventually be a Dallas Maverick, even though all signs seem to point to the contrary.

However, most signs seem to point to Turner staying in Indiana. He continues to work with his local organizations and clearly had the opportunity to leave in the offseason if that’s what he wanted to do. However, the allure of continuing in Indiana and playing alongside an elite point guard like Tyrese Haliburton may have changed the narrative for Turner and this offseason.

And while rumors will continue to circulate (they always do), most Pacers fans seems to be feeling comfortable that Turner will stay in Indiana for the foreseeable future.
