NBA Trade Rumors: According to a recent report, the Indiana Pacers are shopping both Myles Turner, Malcolm Brogdon ahead of the NBA Draft.

After making the playoffs nine times in 10 years, the Indiana Pacers have now missed the postseason in back-to-back seasons. Something has got to change and after hiring Rick Carlisle last offseason, it appears that the Pacers are ready for some more roster reconstruction.

They traded Domantas Sabonis at the NBA Trade Deadline last season, but it doesn’t appear they are quite done. According to a recent report, the Pacers have been shopping Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon recently. And intend on continuing to do so as the NBA Draft approaches.

"[via Bleacher Report]The Pacers have since resumed trade conversations about Turner ahead of the draft, sources told B/R, in addition to engaging opposing front offices on point guard Malcolm Brogdon."

Considering how the Pacers could be ready for a rebuild, especially after landing Tyrese Haliburton and equipped with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, trading Turner and/or Brogdon could really change the outlook for Indiana.

In almost the course of one offseason, the Pacers could go from a borderline playoff team to one of the youngest teams with the brightest futures. Of course, it would be meaningless if thye fail to make the right moves.

But the Pacers are definitley on the right track.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Pacers retool their roster this offseason, because it will happen. I’m sure Indiana is not going to trade either Turner or Brogdon just for the sake of doing so, but they have a very intersting opportunty this offseason.
