The Indiana Pacers were in a state of flux all season long. With no real star, no direction for the future, and a roster that couldn't get along with their head coach, they struggled to keep pace with the rest of the East, eventually losing to the Washington Wizards in the 2021 play-in game.
With no clear blueprint going forward, many believe Indiana's two best players, Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis, could be available in trade talks.
Regarding the former, two West coast franchises have been described as heavily interested.
Myles isn't going to be the best player on a title-contending team. But he's one of the best young defenders in the league and is a great modern big man to plug into any starting lineup.
For teams who need a punch in size, like the Lakers and Clippers, he would be an absolute godsend.
The only problem is, are they willing to give up the assets to get him? With multiple teams in pursuit, the price won't come cheap, and the pacers will likely ask for a young player with potential and a stockpile of picks.
Ultimately, it will come down to how much these L.A. squads are willing to give up.
