Chris Duarte’s time with the team that drafted him 13th overall in 2021 is over after just two years.

The Pacers completed a trade on Thursday, once the NBA’s moratorium was lifted, to send Duarte to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for 2028 and 2030 second-round picks.

For Duarte, it offers him a fresh start and an opportunity on a contending team. He’s reunited with center All-Star Domantas Sabonis and looks to help a Kings team that finished 15th among 16 playoff teams this season in 3-point field goal percentage (30.6%).
