While it is assumed that the Pacers will go further into a youth movement and build around Tyrese Haliburton, are we sure the Pacers will ultimately tear down their roster to do so?
There are plenty of people around the league that believe Indiana is no sure bet to take that route, Sam Amick of The Athletic explains. Ownership has never been a proponent of tanking so despite rumors afloat about Myles Turner and Buddy Hield, the front office could end up keeping the veterans on the roster as long as the team continues to show promise on the court.
The Pacers are currently 12-8 on the season, sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference.
More NBA Trade Rumors
- De’Aaron Fox recently changed agents, joining Klutch, and that brought heavy speculation about him potentially wanting out of Sacramento. Fox says that is not the case. “When you’re an athlete who has any notoriety and you make a major change, it’s going to circulate and people are going to speculate. But for me, I love being in Sacramento,” Fox said (via Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report). “This move had nothing to do with wanting to be traded or wanting to move on. This has more to do with myself and the business of basketball, and I feel like they’re able to help me in ways that I’ve never been able to be helped before. It was really a level up.”
