The Indiana Pacers recently made a big move when they sent Victor Oladipo to the Houston Rockets. They acquired Caris LeVert in the deal and could be looking to make another big one as we approach the NBA trade deadline. The New Orleans Pelicans are in the same situation and could be interested in making some moves.
The Oladipo debacle finally ended when James Harden was traded to the Brooklyn Nets. Houston quickly acquired Oladipo right after and this sent the Pacers in their new direction. Players like Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis are the future in Indiana.
Now that the Oladipo deal is done, Indiana could set their sites on trading Myles Turner. If they decide to pull the trigger, the Pelicans are a team that could be looking to build an intriguing duo in the frontcourt, as they have done in the past.
New Orleans sent Jrue Holiday to the Milwaukee Bucks in the offseason. This showed that they are interested in getting younger moving forward. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram are the two cornerstone players for this franchise.
JJ Redick and Lonzo Ball have been featured in NBA trade rumors in recent weeks. There is a good chance that both players are dealt moving forward. The Pelicans are in need of another franchise-level player to pair with Zion Williamson. This is where Myles Turner could come into play.
This deal would set both sides up in an interesting way. Let’s take a look at what this potential deal might look like between these two sides.
