PODCAST: Trade deadline talk after Pacers finalized two deals in 72 hours
Four players were traded away, three + draft assets incoming. The latest on the Fieldhouse Files podcast.
I expected the Pacers to be active at the trade deadline and they have been. First, agreeing to deal Caris LeVert to the Cavaliers for cap space + draft assets, then a major six-player deal with the Kings centered on Domantas Sabonis for Tyrese Haliburton.
Among the items discussed on this episode:
The Pacers’ new direction and why both deals made sense
LeVert’s 13 months in Indiana
Haliburton surprising availability and the Pacers being thrilled to land him
What I’ve been told about him and his booming, charismatic personality
Why they’re likely not done yet
What this means for Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon
Lance Stephenson signing for the rest of the season
Why forward Reggie Perry is ineligible to play
and A LOT more
The trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET on Thursday.
