Dallas and Indiana probably say yes to this trade, it comes down to what Toronto would want to do.
Toronto would probably want to bring back at least one more promising young player. There is a chance that including a recent draft pick like Duarte could potentially get the deal done for Toronto. Given that the Pacers would be adding Anunoby and only moving back three places in the draft, this kind of trade would be IDEAL for the Pacers as they look to be both competitive but continue to build the roster. And it seems like Pacers fans agree:
And we absolutely agree. We would give this trade an A+ if the front office could pull it off. And we think that it’s actually not an UNLIKELY trade to happen. All three teams want exactly what they are getting in the trade. The only better outcome would be for the Pacers to get OG Anunoby and keep the number seven pick, but of course, this probably can’t happen given the caliber of player they would be bringing in.
What do you think? Do you think the Pacers would be smart to do this trade? Let us know on Twitter at @8pts9secs
