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

Since trading Paul George away to the Thunder in the 2017 NBA offseason, the Indiana Pacers have seemed to be stuck between being a playoff threat and nothing more than a playoff hopeful in the Eastern Conference due to injury concerns on their roster. 

Once more this season, the Pacers have had to deal with a ton of injuries which have left them very short-handed for a vast majority of the season. 

After missing the playoffs for the first time since 2015 last season, the Pacers’ goal entering this season was to get back to the playoffs, but they went in a different direction as a franchise at the trade deadline seeing as they were not making up any ground in the standings. 

Trading away Domantas Sabonis, Caris LeVert, Jeremy Lamb, Justin Holiday, and Torrey Craig at the deadline, the Pacers entered what they are calling a “re-tooling process”, but the easier name for this is called a rebuild.

Indiana gave up a lot of assets at the trade deadline this season, but they not only received some intriguing names in Buddy Hield and Jalen Smith, but they also received second-year guard Tyrese Haliburton, who checks off all the early boxes for being a star in this league. 

Finding ways to continue building around Haliburton will be the main focus of this organization heading into the offseason, which is why Myles Turner could finally be on the move after years of speculation about his long-term future in Indiana. 

Turner is one of the best shot-blockers in the league and while he was drawing interest ahead of the trade deadline this season, the Pacers ultimately held onto him after Myles Turner suffered a foot injury. 

Now, getting ready to enter the final year of his contract, Myles Turner suddenly becomes a prime trade target in the offseason that multiple teams could look to target, one of which could end up being the San Antonio Spurs.
