Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers, Charlotte Hornets, NBA Trade Rumors

For a while, many observers thought the big man was a dying breed in the NBA. In the pace-and-space era, it appeared as if the lumbering seven-footer may become a relic of the past. 

Try telling that to Nikola Jokic. For that matter, explain it to Joel Embiid. They were the winner and runner-up of the 2021-22 MVP award. As it turns out, the centre is still alive and well in the National Basketball Association. 

Big men simply had to modernize their game. By 2022, you’d better be able to either shoot threes or switch onto guards/wings defensively if you want to be a starting big man. Otherwise, you’ll be lucky to crack a rotation. 

By that standard, Myles Turner is a highly modernized big man. As a career 34.9% three-point shooter, he’s a credible threat from distance.
