NBA Trade Rumors: Pacers in talks about potential Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner trades
Malcolm Brogdon, Myles Turner NBA trade rumors
The Indiana Pacers have missed the boat to the NBA Playoffs in each of the last two seasons, which has led some to believe that the franchise will have to undergo a dramatic makeover in the offseason. To that end, the Pacers, according to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic, are involved in talks about potentially unloading two of their best players via trades.

“The Pacers are seriously discussing trades centered on Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner, sources said. The Wizards and Knicks are interested in Brogdon, armed with the Nos. 10 and 11 picks respectively, sources said. The Hornets have expressed interest in Turner, those sources said. Still, Indiana, which has the No. 6 pick in the draft, could elect to continue retooling its veteran core rather than rebuild entirely around young players.”Brogdon’s and Turner’s names aren’t new to NBA trade rumors. The New York Knicks have been rumored to have a significant interest in the former Virginia Cavaliers star as a fallback plan in case they end up empty-handed in their pursuit of Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson. Turner has also been linked to the likes of the Mavs and the Charlotte Hornets, though, Dallas might no longer be in the picture after Mark Cuban’s team acquired Christian Wood via a trade deal with the Houston Rockets. Any team looking to get Brogdon must be committed to paying his current contract that doesn’t expire until the end of the 2024-25 season and one that is worth over $89 million in guaranteed money the rest of the way. Turner, on the other hand, is due to hit the free-agent market in 2023.
