Pacers receptive to trading Domantas Sabonis, Caris LeVert, Myles Turner?

The Indiana Pacers learned on Tuesday that sixth man T.J. McConnell may be out for the rest of the season. Now, according to multiple reports, the underachieving squad is potentially planning a roster overhaul.

The Pacers are currently 13th in the Eastern Conference at 10-16.

Among the potential suitors for LeVert — but more so Sabonis or Turner — could be the Golden State Warriors, which are tied with the Phoenix Suns for the best record in the league at 20-4.

"It’s unclear to rival teams how swift the Pacers could begin to make moves, but it’s expected the franchise will be patient in its trade approach and reach decisions based on the best offers that are made," The Athletic reported. "There are three ways to acquire players — through the draft, through trades and through free agency. For Indiana, though, there are really only two ways: the draft and trades, with an emphasis on trades. Indiana has never been a free-agent destination. Sources tell The Athletic the Pacers will be very active from now until the trade deadline."

Sabonis is currently second on the team in points (17.8), first in rebounds (12.0), third in assists (4.1) and first in steals per game (1.2), while LeVert is third in scoring (14.9) and fourth in assists (2.9). Turner is fifth in scoring (12.6), second in rebounding (7.5) and is posting a league-leading 2.8 blocks per contest.
