2. Myles Turner (Trade)

The Indiana Pacers are one more report away from entering panic mode. Rumors are piling up that Victor Oladipo is ready to jump ship as soon as the opportunity arises. Could this spring the Pacers into a full rebuild?

Myles Turner is a player who could be on his way out if the franchise shifts into hyperdrive. Sure, Turner is a relatively young player himself at only 24 years of age, but he doesn’t appear to be a blooming superstar. Flipping his value for multiple assets and draft picks could be more appealing to the Pacers than riding Turner to years of mediocracy if Oladipo leaves.

In this case, the Warriors should make a push for Turner. Unless they accomplish a bridge-option, the Warriors would have to include a package of Andrew Wiggins and their No. 2 overall draft pick. This is better though, as it would likely force the Pacers to include another player like T.J. Warren – who can help with his scoring off the bench.

Turner is one of the best 3-point shooting big men in the league, hitting 86-of-250 attempts this season. He led the league in blocks a year ago and averaged over 2.0 rejected shots for the third time in his career. Turner can space the floor and protect the rim at a high-rate for the Dubs – something they need in order to win another championship.
