The Pacers leverage significant draft assets to bring in OG Anunoby.

There are probably a couple of nonnegotiable pieces that are currently on the Pacers roster. Players like Tyrese Haliburton and Bennedict Mathurin come to mind. But beyond that, there is quite a bit of flexibility in terms of contracts, picks, and future cap space. So what could the Pacers offer that might bring in Anunoby? Bleacher Report suggests the following: 

At first glance this seems like a lot for OG given that he hasn’t ever made an All-Star team nor projects to any time soon. So what makes OG so valuable?

He is exactly the type of player that the Pacers need, and really good at it too. 

OG can play without the ball in his hands, is a big-time power forward defender, and can generally shoot well as well. I don’t know if there are any other set of qualities that would better fit with the current Pacers team.
