The Indiana Pacers compete in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference in the NBA. The franchise was founded in 1967 as part of the American Basketball Association (ABA), where they won three championships (1970, 1972, and 1973). Since the ABA-NBA merger, the Pacers have appeared in eight NBA Eastern Conference Finals, and are yet to win an NBA championship.

The team is currently trying to build around star player Tyrese Haliburton and 2022 sixth overall pick Bennedict Mathurin. In 56 games in the 2022/23 season, Haliburton averaged 20.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game. Meanwhile, Mathurin played 78 games and averaged 16.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in his rookie season.
