The Indiana Pacers have been one of the most disappointing teams in all of basketball this season and that has caused them to think about the idea of rebuilding their entire franchise. They’re currently 14-22 on the season, but with the talent that they have, that is completely unacceptable.

A team that has Domantas Sabonis, Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner, Caris LeVert, and countless others should never be as bad as the Pacers are. They have once again underperformed to what everybody in the NBA expected them to. If they do indeed decide to go into a rebuild mode, there are plenty of players that can bring back a lengthy return and help speed up that process. It is unclear if they are going to want to get rid of all of their key guys, or just a few of them. When looking at their roster, there are about five or six guys on the Pacers who can go to a contending team and make them immediately better and play an impact in winning an NBA title.

It will be interesting to see what the Pacers decide to do, but there’s clearly a reason for them deciding to go into a rebuild mode because they realize that they do not have the correct pieces around each other to get the job done. Let’s take a look at three guys that the Pacers should think about trading in order to get back exactly what they need to speed up their rebuild process.

Pacers NBA Trade Deadline

3. Domantas Sabonis

Sabonis is arguably the hottest name on the trade block going into the NBA trade deadline. There’s a reason why he was an NBA All-Star the past two seasons, and it looks like he can become one once again. Any team who is looking for somebody to play that four or five position is going to be on the phone for him because he does everything that a typical center is needed in the NBA.

It will be interesting to see if they do decide to get rid of him because he has been about the only bright spot for this Pacers team in the past few seasons. Although they do have guys like Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner, they haven’t exactly played up to what many expected of them. Although both of those guys are still good players, Sabonis might be the most intriguing guy because he has performed even though his team has not.

2. Myles Turner

Myles Turner will probably get back the biggest return for the Pacers because he’s an elite rim protector and he can stretch the floor. He is essentially everything that a team would want on an NBA team in its current state due to how many teams shoot the three-point shot.

It will be interesting to see what teams are going to be interested in him but a team like the Milwaukee Bucks or the Chicago Bulls are two that are definitely going to be most interested in him. They are both title contenders and adding a guy who can stretch the floor for both of them will certainly be a piece that they want. He would make a lot of sense going to the Chicago Bulls because they do have a lot of young pieces that the Pacers could find intriguing. If the Bulls can somehow get a guy like Turner, they’re going to be in a very good position to win an NBA title. The only thing that they really need is somebody who can defend the rim at a high level and also get rebounds, which is exactly what Turner brings to the table.

1. Torrey Craig

Torrey Craig is an interesting name because he’s not necessarily a great player, but he is certainly not a bad player. Craig is a player that the Pacers might decide to keep. He became known during the NBA bubble where he was guarding guys like LeBron James and others at a very high level. Craig went to the Bucks after being with the Denver Nuggets and then the Phoenix Suns. He definitely did not pan out the way that either of those teams were expecting him to. Some teams could still see him as a forward who can defend the one through five positions and that is always valuable so he could get a decent return. The biggest issue with Torrey Craig is that some teams might have seen him play with other contending teams and not have liked what they have seen. It will be interesting to see if they do decide to move on with him because he is a good role player and somebody that a rebuilding team will certainly not mind having in their organization.
