REPORT: Pacers have “high interest” in acquiring D’Angelo Russell this off-season

With Kyrie Irving leaning towards going to Brooklyn this off-season, that will fill a position that current Net D’Angelo Russell has.  Russell also a free agent looks to be on the move.  Reports from (SNY) on Friday night say that the Indiana Pacers have “high interest” in acquiring D’Angelo Russell this off-season.  There are several teams likely interested in Russell’s service including the Pacers, Knicks, and Celtics.  it appears that Russell has turned a corner this past year having his best season.  The 23-year-old was named to his first All-Star team and averaged career highs with 21.1 PPG, and 7.0 APG in 81 games this year with Brooklyn who finally made it back to the playoffs for the first time in three years.

 

Reef’s Analysis 

After looking at the current free agent market and who would come to Indy and what value the Pacers can get….. I do like if the Pacers can get a “true point guard” who can score the ball and can also be trusted with pressure.  The trio of point guards the Pacers had the past two years has been alright, but Pacers need more scoring from that position.  As long as Russell continues to grow and mature…..I think it would be a great addition for the Pacers.
