The Indiana Pacers cleaned house at the trade deadline last season and made some notable changes to their roster. They also strengthened their team through the draft, taking Arizona standout Bennedict Mathurin sixth overall last week while also adding a couple of other intriguing pieces.

However, since earlier this year, there’s been non-stop chatter about a potential Myles Turner trade. There is no shortage of interest in a shot-blocker who can make a serious difference down low, with the likes of Toronto, Minnesota, and New York keeping tabs on the center.

Turner only played in 42 games in 2021-22 due to injuries, averaging 12.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per night. The partnership with Domantas Sabonis just honestly didn’t work out like the Pacers were hoping and now that he’s in Sacramento, perhaps Turner can find his best.

To be frank, Indiana doesn’t exactly have a legitimate option at the five other than Turner. He is an imposing figure around the hoop and easily one of the premier shot-changers in this league. With Tyrese Haliburton now in the mix as well, Turner can serve as a solid lob threat for the guard.

If the Pacers ultimately do keep Myles Turner, they’re definitely doing the right thing. Let’s just hope he can actually stay healthy and give this team meaningful minutes in 2022-23.
