The Indiana Pacers are 13-18 on the year and sit 13th in the Eastern Conference.
Clearly this squad, as presently constructed, is going nowhere fast.
At this point the front office is working very hard to make some changes.
One bit of potential fallout from that? Them trading Domantas Sabonis.
According to Matt Moore of The Action Network, Sabonis has been wanting out for some time now. And the situation now seems ripe for making that wish a reality.
“There’s belief that pretty much every Pacer is gettable right now outside of Malcolm Brogdon, who can’t be dealt for a year after signing his extension, but here are some things to consider,” he wrote.
“Kevin O’Connor of the Ringer reported that Domantas Sabonis wants out of Indiana. That’s what I was told by multiple league sources as well, and that it wasn’t just this season, but instead going back to last year Sabonis was looking for a change of scenery.”
Sabonis was recently linked to a fairly blockbuster trade with a legitimate title contender. If that materializes, his move could have massive ramifications for the NBA as a whole.
Either way, it is becoming increasingly clear that Sabonis is not long for Indiana. One way or another, he is getting dealt soon.
