The talk about breaking up the Turner-Sabonis pairing in the frontcourt has been going around since the start of the season. Following Domantas Sabonis' All-Star season, the Indiana Pacers might be willing to let go of Myles Turner and make the most of his market value.

Turner is just 24 and has already shown promising signs on both ends of the court. Given Turner's defensive versatility, NBA trade rumors report that more than 10 teams are interested in landing him in the offseason.


#4. JaKarr Sampson

Despite JaKarr Sampson' dogged determination on the defensive end of the floor, his inability on the offensive end continues to be a liability. The 27-year-old scored just 4.6 points per game in the 38 games he played for the Pacers in the regular season. As his one-year minimum contract comes to an end, Indiana will not be too keen on re-signing Sampson in the offseason.

After spending most of his career in the NBA G League, Naz Mitrou-Long signed a two-way contract with the Indiana Pacers in 2019. In the limited opportunities he got during the regular season, Mitrou-Long failed to continue his impressive G League form and averaged just 2.8 points. The 27-year-old will be a restricted free agent in the offseason and the Pacers will most likely let him walk away.
