A few weeks ago the Indiana Pacers pulled strings to let the rest of the league know that their heavyweights were for sale. Except for Malcolm Brogdon, who cannot be traded until the next offseason, all the great players of the team are likely to leave facing the market close. And while Domantas Sabonis or Caris LeVert may be better players, the truth is that it is Myles Turner who is garnering the most attention throughout the league. At least Mavericks, Lakers, Hornets and Knicks have already asked about the pivot according to informs Shams Charania en The Athletic.
It’s no secret that Turner is frustrated with his supporting role in Indiana for years. The arrival of Rick Carlisle has not changed the landscape and everything indicates that his transfer is the most likely. However, LeVert has also raised some interest in the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are looking to ease Ricky’s loss. For their part, several league officials say the Pacers price Sabonis too high, making it difficult for him to leave.
Turner has this and another season left on his contract at a rate of $ 18 million. This would leave the Lakers almost out of the fight unless they shed one of their four largest contracts, of which LeBron and Davis have to be discounted. Will this be the time the Turner rumors finally materialize?
