Toppin has been connected to the Pacers going back to the trade deadline. And this trade has Tyrese Haliburton giddy.
The Indiana Pacers are completing a deal with the New York Knicks to acquire forward Obi Toppin, a league source confirmed to Fieldhouse Files.
Toppin, a 6-foot-9 forward, has been a target of the franchise since the trade deadline because of the fit and how he fills an obvious need.
News of this deal was first reported by Woj, who reports that the Pacers are sending out two future second-round picks. The Pacers acquired a handful of them over the last five months, first at the trade deadline and then with the draft, including two from the Wizards to simply move back from No. 7 to 8.
