The Indiana Pacers, all of a sudden, have quite the young core in Tyrese Haliburton, Buddy Hield (kind of young), Chris Duarte, and Myles Turner. Assuming they’re going to make the shift to a youth movement, it would be surprising if they didn’t explore a Malcolm Brogdon trade.
However, either way, this is a good, young roster that should be able to make the shift next season from a non-playoff team to a playoff team – assuming that they don’t continue to tear away at the roster.
The Pacers are well-coached as well under Rick Carlisle. This was somewhat of a transition year for the Pacers. That’s understandable. Though, it would be highly surprising if they weren’t much more competitive heading into next season.
