Has Myles Turner Already Played Final Game With Indiana Pacers?

Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

The Indiana Pacers have decided to rule out Myles Turner for the remainder of the 2021-22 NBA season as they face no outlook to earn a playoff appearance.

Turner, who has been recovering from a stress reaction in his foot, has not appeared in a game since the Pacers’ 112-94 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Jan. 14. He finished the 2021-22 campaign with averages of 12.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks in 42 appearances.

It’s not easy to find a center that provides elite rim protection with a jump shooting ability. As a result, there should be no shortage of potential suitors interested in acquiring him closer to the 2022 NBA Draft. With that being said, the Pacers could benefit from striking a deal.

The long-term plans for the Pacers revolve around Tyrese Haliburton, Chris Duarte, and whoever they select with their first-round pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

While Turner is still just 26-years-old, he is due for a new contract soon and the Pacers will need to determine if he fits in their long-term plans. The 2022-23 season is the final year of his deal and if both sides want to move on, a deal makes sense sooner rather than later.

The trade value for a player tends to diminish closer to the trade deadline when playing on an expiring deal, as Turner will be doing next NBA season. Getting a deal done in the summer could afford him the chance to come to a contract extension agreement and land with a new team.
