It's NBA Trade Deadline Day, but will the Pacers make a move?
Indiana has been aggressive in offering its salary space to extract a first-round pick for absorbing a bad contract, league sources tell ESPN. Pacers would send Al Jefferson back in those deals.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 8, 2018
To me, whether or not the Pacers should make a trade is dependent on what trade is out there. They have the ability to take on a bad contract, but only if it includes getting an asset (i.e. a first round pick) in return.
As far as potential trade targets are concerned, Brooklyn's DeMarre Carroll could be on the table:
