There it is. The trade that has been speculated across the NBA for quite some time comes on the day of the NBA trade deadline.
The #Sixers got Buddy Heild from the Pacers in exchange for Marcus Morris, Furkan Korkmaz, Toronto 2nd 2024, Portland 2nd 2029, Clipped 2nd 2029 and $1.5M in cash, according to a Adrian Wojnarowski.
Hield has been included in trade rumors since September when the Pacers and Hield began discussing finding the 31-year-old a potential trade to another team after extension talks stalled.
Hield is in the last year of a four-year contract, earning $19.2 million this season.
He joined the Pacers during the 2021-22 season in the Tyrese Haliburton trade from the Sacramento Kings.
Buddy Hield emerged as a positive veteran leader and productive running mate alongside Haliburton.
Hield is averaging 12.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season.
