The Indiana Pacers have a crowded frontcourt with Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner, both 24. Turner has been the subject of business speculation in recent weeks, and as we search for hypothetical business partners for Indiana, the Charlotte Hornets are in dire need.
Bismack Biyombo will be a free agent this offseason, and Tuner would be an upgrade from incumbent Cody Zeller.
Turner hasn’t quite become the star the Pacers hoped to be, but he’s still a talented young center who can protect the rim at all times. He is under contract for three more seasons before becoming a free agent in 2023 at age 27.
The Hornets would have the opportunity to rectify a mistake that was made in the 2015 NBA Draft when they took Frank Kaminsky with the No.8 pick instead of a better option that includes Turner.
As the Indiana Pacers weigh their off-season options, let’s take a look at a hypothetical business scenario that would send Myles Turner to the Charlotte Hornets.
