And what is our opinion on the matter?

Honestly? Myles Turner is a Pacer. He started as a Pacer and I believe will play many more years in Indiana before he either goes to another team to finish his career or retires in the blue and gold. And while the time in Indy has been rocky at times, Pacers fans know that they love Turner and the attitude that he brings to the Pacers squad.

He pairs nicely with many of the long-term pieces and while it seems that he has been playing forever, he’s only 27 years old. He still will barely be 30 when his current contract is up.

These trade rumors are the results of desperation and delusion from Dallas Mavericks fans and media. They are the result of a deeply rooted fear that Luka will decide to leave because of their inept leadership group. And honestly? Those fears are likely justified, but that doesn’t mean the Pacers are going to let go of their defensive anchor.
