Why The Indiana Pacers Do The Deal 

By contrast, the Pacers have been a pleasant surprise this season. At 10-6, they’re fourth in the Eastern Conference. 

Moreover, they’ve been much better when Turner has been able to play. If the Pacers aren’t interested in rebuilding, that’s understandable. They look the part of a playoff team. 

On the other hand, they do not look the part of a title contender. Conventional wisdom holds that if you’re not in that conversation, you’re rebuilding. If the Pacers subscribe to that line of thought, they’ll like this deal. 

After all, it lands them a first-round pick. It also gives them the opportunity to play the younger Isaiah Jackson more prominently.
