The Pacers have the biggest offseason for the team in years. They have a young star and talent that can be built around and need to put together the final pieces for a young core that could develop in the years to come.
But the team clearly has a massive hole in the starting rotation at power forward and could continue to upgrade at small forward. This leaves the team with a lot of directions they could go with their number seven lottery pick. Michael Scotto of HoopsHype is reporting that rival NBA executives believe the Pacers may be looking to move off of the number seven pick to fill these holes in their starting rotation.
"Rival NBA executives believe Indiana will conduct due diligence and gauge the market for the No. 7 pick, with upgrades at small forward and power forward as tasks for the Pacers this offseason."
If this is the case, the question becomes who are the teams that may be looking to acquire the pick and what would be players that may be reasonable compensation for the pick? Here are two options that the Pacers may have if the team is truly looking at the market and seeing what the best return would be on pick number seven.
