Myles Turner’s Pacers Future Decided Soon?

NBA Analytics Network

Trade rumors are nothing new to Myles Turner, the starting point of the Indiana Pacers who is on a breakout NBA season. He’s been in the trading bloc for years, but no deal has ever materialized. When the Pacers were open to splitting their jumbo frontcourt before the 2022 trade deadline, many people thought it would be Turner moving, not Domantas Sabonis.

Sadly, it was Sabonis who was dealt as he was traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for a pack of Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield and Tristan Thompson. It’s a deal that worked out for both parties as the Kings play their best basketball in years and the Pacers far exceed expectations.

Turner’s production is one of the reasons Indiana plays well. He is having the best season of his career, with career highs in shooting percentage, 3-point shooting percentage, points and rebounds.

Given how well he plays, it’s no surprise that the Pacers have shown some interest in ending this years-long charade and locking Turner into a long-term deal. The Pacers are eligible for an overtime and can pay Turner a ton of money given the amount of cap space they have available.

However, the door is left ajar when it comes to trading the big man from Texas. As detailed by Action Network’s Matt MooreTurner will be made available if renewal talks fail.

“The Athletic reported last month that the Indiana Pacers and Myles Turner were in overtime talks. An agreement would end a four-year trading saga surrounding the versatile big man. However, multiple sources indicated this week that if a deal isn’t reached, it would ultimately push the Pacers to move forward and deal Turner. At this point, I’ll believe it when I see it, given how many times Turner’s name has appeared in trade rumors.

This is not an easy decision for the Pacers. They are in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff race in what was expected to be a rebuilding season. Will their success lead to a change in the front office’s plans?

Indiana needs to consider whether they are better than expected or if this is a bit fluky given the disappointing performance of other teams expected to contend for the playoffs. If Turner eventually becomes available, the Pacers should be able to cash in on a nice return.
