Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors

Looking at the Indiana Pacers roster and where they could use game-changers, even after adding Obi Toppin this past offseason, the power forward position is one area where the team could use an upgrade. That's why Pascal Siakam could be viewed as an excellent fit for the Pacers. Breaking down their respective games, Siakam and Myles Turner should be able to fit in and play with each other well. They could even feed off each other on the offensive end of the floor. Siakam is also a better defender than he gets credit for.

He'd certainly be an interesting addition for the Pacers and if the Raptors are finally at the point where they're ready to retool their roster around Scottie Barnes, this is where Indiana can help. If I was the Pacers, I wouldn't hesitate to offer a young big and a couple of future first-round picks. Of course, that's under the assumption that Siakam is going to sign a long-term contract extension with the team.

But those are the types of things that have to be decided and figured out before the trade even takes place through backchanneling.
