A shake-up was expected for the Indiana Pacers this NBA offseason. Yet, as we are only a few weeks away from training camp getting underway, the only real change that has occurred has been on the coaching staff.

Rick Carlisle will be back on the sidelines for the Pacers, replacing Nate Bjorkgren, who lasted only one season as head coach. Carlisle is returning to the organization for the first time since 2007. He has since spent 13 seasons as the head coach of the Dallas Mavericks.

On the court, the team will be very similar to how it was last season. Chris Duarte, who was selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Isaiah Jackson, who was selected 22nd and acquired in a trade, and Torrey Craig were the biggest additions.

Doug McDermott left in free agency, signing with the San Antonio Spurs. T.J. McConnell was retained, though, to continue anchoring the second unit at point guard.

There were rumors that the team would break up their current core, as Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner have been mentioned in a lot of trade rumors. While that has not occurred, yet, there is still time for trades to be made.

Could the Pacers try their hand at acquiring Pascal Siakam from the Toronto Raptors? Siakam has been mentioned in some trade rumors as well this offseason. What might a deal between the teams look like?

Here’s a hypothetical trade that lands Siakam in Indiana.
