3. Isaiah Jackson

Isaiah Jackson has been a prospect-level player for the Pacers for three years, as he hasn't had an opportunity to play meaningful minutes. Jackson has played the least amount of minutes in year three than he has in either of his first two seasons and is clearly out of Rick Carlisle's rotation.

In spite of that, he's had a career season, posting averages of 18.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per 36 minutes. His offensive efficiency has been up - 66.3 percent from the field, 67.7 percent on two-pointers, 71.7 percent from the foul line, and a gaudy 68.9 percent true shooting.

He's also quietly posted a Player Efficiency Rating of 21.2, which is actually third-best on the roster this season.

Jackson will be on an expiring in the summer, as the team has already exercised his team option for 2024-25, prior to becoming a restricted free agent. Jackson could fetch the Pacers a second-round pick, as he provides value as a shot blocker and rebounder.

Moving a player like Jackson, who is out of the lineup, should be a no-brainer.
