Once a real playoff contender in the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers will be missing the playoffs for back-to-back NBA seasons for the first-time since 2010. 

Trading Domantas Sabonis and Caris LeVert at the trade deadline this season, the Pacers seem to be moving towards a new era with Tyrese Haliburton being the new face of their franchise. 

Haliburton was the 12th overall selection in the 2020 NBA Draft by the Kings and is a young combo-guard that shows a ton of promise to be a potential All-Star backcourt talent one day. 

Since joining the Pacers, Tyrese Haliburton has averaged 16.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 9.8 assists, and has shot 39.7% from three-point range.

With the emergence of Haliburton in the backcourt, the Pacers not only have a new direction to trend towards as a franchise, but they now have questions to answer about Malcolm Brogdon’s future. 

Malcolm Brogdon received a two-year, $45 million extension in October, keeping him under contract through the 2024-25 season, but this deal was given to him before the Pacers decided to “reboot” their franchise. 

Now, heading into the offseason and expected to land a Top-10 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, the Pacers could very much trend towards building a young core, which could mean them looking to trade Malcolm Brogdon either ahead of the draft for more draft assets or shortly after.

Over the last three seasons, Brogdon has averaged 18.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.3 assists and has shot 44.7% from the floor. Still proving to be an all-around threat at either the point guard or shooting guard position, Malcolm Brogdon could be a sneaky trade target for several teams heading into the offseason. 

Let’s take a look at three teams that may be willing to take a chance on a Malcolm Brogdon trade, even though he has dealt with injuries the last couple of years.
