Pacers Coverage

It may be the summer of Tyrese Haliburton, but his offseason is now over a month before most of his teammates’. The Indiana Pacers point guard has the opportunity to have a special and memorable next six weeks with USA Basketball. It all started Wednesday in Las Vegas as members of the 12-man roster arrived to […]

One of the greatest players in the Portland Trail Blazers franchise history demanded a trade this summer in Damian Lillard. A beloved star player, drafted and developed by a small market team, forces his hand at a trade. Pacers fans, stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Paul George spent the first 7 years […]

While the Pacers continue to be mentioned as a potential destination for Pascal Siakam of the Toronto Raptors, there is a player on their roster who is now the subject of trade rumors of his own.  T.J McConnell, the Pacers back-up point guard who has been on the team since 2019, has been rumored to […]

When the Pacers took Benedict Mathurin with the 6th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, many assumed he would be an instant starter for a lackluster roster. Instead, Head Coach Rick Carlisle made the Arizona product pay his dues. Mathurin played in 78 of the Pacers’ 82 games last season but started just 17, […]

LAS VEGAS — Just because the Indiana Pacers have completed several moves this offseason doesn’t mean they’re a finished product. They completed three trades involving draft picks before they finally made their first selection in Jarace Walker at 8, then they later agreed to a free-agent deal with Bruce Brown, dealt Chris Duarte to the Kings and acquired Obi Toppin. Still, more roster consolidation is necessary […]

For Pacers rookie Jarace Walker, the expectations going into the NBA Summer League were fairly high.  Sure, they weren’t as high as they might have been for 1st-overall selection Victor Wembanyama or 2nd-overall pick Brandon Miller, but when a team drafts you in the top-10, there is pressure to perform immediately, even if it is […]

Much like Jake Query’s interview with Tyrese Haliburton last Thursday he also got a 1-on-1 interview with newest Pacer guard Bruce Brown Jr.  The former Nugget described being an NBA champion and now landing with a team with playoff aspirations.  Brown discussed what drew him to the Pacers, why they beat out the Knicks for […]

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 […]

Tyrese Haliburton put pen to paper on Thursday when he officially signed his max contract extension with the Indiana Pacers, keeping him in the blue and gold for at least another five seasons.  Haliburton’s deal does not include a player option of any sort, meaning he’s serious when he says he wants Indiana to be […]

The Indiana Pacers officially introduced Bruce Brown on Thursday, almost a week after it was reported that the team had agreed to a 2-year, $45 million deal.   During the press conference, Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle was asked about how Brown would fit in with the team as a whole.  “He has great diversity […]
