Myles Turner changes agents in a contract year
Turner is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season in July. He's been with the Pacers since they drafted him 11th overall in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has changed agents leading up to the biggest summer of his professional career.
Turner is now represented by Austin Brown of CAA. Of note, Brown also represents bigs Zion Williamson, Jaren Jackson Jr., along with many others, including second-year guard Chris Duarte of the Pacers.
Turner, the Pacers’ 2015 first-round pick, is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and will have the opportunity to choose his destination for the first time. It’s rare for a player to be with a franchise so long.
Now in his eighth season, he remains the longest-tenured Pacer.
Next after him: Goga Bitadze.
And while on the Pacers, Turner has missed out on the playoffs the last two years. Turner getting hurt, unable to finish those two seasons, was certainly a contributing factor.
However, he also has never been on a team that has advanced past the first round. The Pacers were one-and-done in his first five seasons.
More than anything, this summer represents an opportunity for Turner to sign the largest contract of his career. He’ll turn 27 years old in March and could sign for up to five years with the Pacers or four years with another team.
