While the Pacers haven’t been aggressive in trying to move Turner, it is believed they are open to the idea. They continue to explore deals centered on the No. 13 overall draft pick, per reports.
Meanwhile, the Pelicans and Hornets are said to be on the lookout for a new man in the middle. New Orleans actually has a few things to figure out, with point guard Lonzo Ball entering restricted free agency and new coach Willie Green looking to implement his own philosophy.
Turner, 25, has been at the center of trade rumors for the past several years. He averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and a career-high 3.4 blocks in 46 games this past season.
As for the Hornets, there’s no doubt Turner would be the type of fit to help push them to another level. The question is, what would they have to give up to get him?
