Indiana Pacers rebuild? To have Sabonis and other stars

The Indiana Pacers are on the verge of upheaval. According to media reports, the Pacers are ready for trade talks. Accordingly, Caris LeVert as well as Domantas Sabonis or Myles Turner are available.

This is what Shams Charania and Bob Kravitz (both The Athletic). According to this, GM Kevin Pritchard is said to have convinced owner Herb Simon that Indiana should start over. The 87-year-old Simon is the long-running favorite among the owners and is known for avoiding a rebuild at all costs.

The reason given was always the difficult market in Indianapolis, as the fans allegedly would not accept a rebuild. With around 13,000 spectators on average, the Pacers are in last place in the audience table, which is said to have caused Simon to rethink.

So now the front court around Sabonis and Turner could be broken. Sabonis has been an all-star for the past two years, raking in $ 18.5 million. The Lithuanian puts on an average of 18 points and 12 rebounds, his contract runs until 2023. Turner’s working paper is also the same length. The center is one of the best shot blockers in the league and receives 17.5 million annually for it.
