Additionally, simply an FYI: folks should cease utilizing supermax as what Siakam needs, as he is not going to be eligible for it except he makes all-NBA. He can lengthen for as much as 4 years proper now with Raptors or two years with a group he’s traded to, the latter of which makes little sense. – 2:08 PM

If Siakam have been to be traded to Indiana, along with Bruce Brown, the Pacers would want so as to add $7.4M of wage to create sufficient house to take again Siakam.

Then while you take a look at their roster, they’ve a younger, budding famous person in [Tyrese] Haliburton who will not be solely this deadly scorer, however he’s facilitating and making the precise performs. He’s some extent guard’s level guard by way of making his teammates higher. Pascal being added there provides a dynamic that they didn’t have earlier than, which is somebody to alleviate stress off of Tyrese and relieve stress on Pascal. Each guys, in late-game conditions, may go get a bucket with out having to run loads of offense. Each gamers are extraordinarily unselfish and pass-first kind of gamers. They make the precise play as an alternative of the egocentric play. The truth that Pascal is a champion like Rick Carlisle is, he’ll carry that have on a gifted younger group. Once you take a look at someone like Myles Turner, who’s a stretch 5 and rim-protecting massive, being paired with Pascal can be lethal with offering Pascal with spacing, which he in any other case didn’t have in Toronto.” -via SportsKeeda / January 18, 2024

Though issues have modified to the place he’s been moved, he’s ecstatic concerning the alternative forward of him in Indiana. To start with, it’s a first-class group. Once you take a look at [President] Kevin Pritchard and [general manager] Chad Buchanan, these are basketball guys with a corporation that at all times has had basketball executives from Larry Fowl to Donnie Walsh which have been there. Their entrance workplace is top quality.” -via SportsKeeda / January 18, 2024
