WOOOO we have had an OFFSEASON. Several wins all in themselves and just a great beginning to the Pacer’s 2023 season. I started writing this before Free agency had started and I wasn’t expecting much more than a free agent forward being signed as we continue to develop our young guys. Instead, we won the Bruce Brown sweepstakes, Tyrese Haliburton signed his contract extension, and we finally got Obi Toppin which was something I was hoping would happen last trade deadline! (Also as an avid member of the Chris Duarte fan club, I truly hope he balls out for the Kings next year.)
Now with all these additions come questions. Who will be getting consistent minutes and who will have to adapt to more of a reserve role? In the Pacer’s case, I think there is some certainty in the roster but also a lot of opportunity for guys to compete for a spot. I’ll be going through each position as they are currently and we will see just how deep this roster truly is.
