Word out of Indiana is that the Pacers are looking to move two of their franchise players as their rebuild continues:

Not only is Brogdon a plus defender, he’s a good shooter who can serve as a secondary playmaker alongside Trae Young. The last time we saw Brogdon fully healthy in 2020, he posted 21 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists per game while shooting almost 39% from 3. His numbers dropped off a bit in Indiana, partially due to injury and a lack of talent around him. Regardless, he’s still a perfect fit in Atlanta, and the Hawks should be seriously considering adding him to the roster ahead of the 2022 NBA Draft.
There are some concerns with Brogdon’s health and his relationship with Coach Nate McMillan, so the Hawks are going to have to carefully weigh the trade cost when talking to the Pacers.
