Indiana had a successful offseason. That’s where Turner comes in.
The Indiana Pacers 토토사이트 consistently made the playoffs from the 2015-2016 season to the 2019-2020 season. This was despite the loss of former ace Paul George (203 cm, F) and the addition of newcomer Domantas Sabonis (208 cm, F-C).
However, Indiana failed to make the playoffs in the 2020-2021 season. In the 2021-2022 season, the team was still in the bottom half of the standings, so they traded away their ace, Savonis, and acquired Tyreese Halliburton (196 cm, G) to “rebuild”.
After being traded to Indiana, Halliburton quickly integrated into the team. In 26 games since the trade, he’s averaged 17.5 points and 9.6 assists. Last season, he averaged 20.7 points and 10.4 assists in 56 games. Despite missing the playoffs, Indiana had a successful season with the growth of its young players.
And this offseason, they’ve been able to bolster their roster. They acquired Bruce Brown (193 cm, G-F), who helped them win a championship with the Denver Nuggets. They also acquired Obi Toffin (203 cm, F) via trade. The team had a successful offseason, even re-signing Halliburton, who developed into an ace.
The team’s starting center, Myles Turner (211 cm, C), who played eight seasons in Indiana, spoke out. “I think our team definitely got better this offseason,” Turner told The Indy Star. We brought in Brown, and he has experience winning championships in Denver. His ‘winning mentality’ will bring a lot to the team,” he said.
“We’re going to get better. Halliburton re-signed, and I’m sure he felt it. The same goes for the rest of the players. We are ready to entertain the fans. This season will be different.”
But after missing the playoffs for three straight seasons, can Indiana make it different this time around? For that to happen, they’ll need the growth of their young players.
