Buddy Hield trade rumors keep coming out.
The Indiana Pacers were a blast early in the season. The performance of the starting lineup, including Tyrese Halliburton, Miles Turner, and Buddy Hild, as well as the presence of rookie Benedict Madeline, who has been doing his part from the first season of his professional debut from the bench, overturned expectations before the opening and placed at the top of the Eastern Conference at the beginning of the season. I put my name on it.
However, Indiana’s pace is rapidly dropping in January. Since Halliburton, the ace, suffered knee and elbow injuries, he only won one win out of the eight games he played. The ranking also fell to 9th in the Eastern Conference. There is only one game against 11th place Chicago, which is the right to drop out of the play-in tournament.
Not too long ago, because of the good performance at the beginning of the season, there was a lot of talk that Indiana would try to challenge the playoffs while maintaining its current power, but as the situation changed rapidly, rumors about the trade of key players are pouring out again. At the center is Heald, the shooter with the best form in the league this season.
Heild, who made a new nest in Indiana with Halliburton through a trade during last season, is consistently in charge of one axis of the team’s offense with averages of 17.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists this season.
In particular, Heald’s sharpest weapon, the 3-point shot, has been spitting fire throughout the season. He averages 3.8 3-pointers per game, 5th in the league this season, and maintains a high 3-point success rate of 42.4%. Of the 35 players averaging 7.0 or more 3-pointers per game this season, only Lauri Makkanen has a higher 3-pointer success rate than Hild at 43.2 percent.
There are many teams that are salivating for Heald. A top shooter like Heald is the last piece of the puzzle for a team looking to win, and many teams are likely to offer drafting rights and player packages to sign him with an annual salary contract of about $40 million left until next season.
The trade deadline for Indiana to make a final decision is now less than two weeks away. Indiana’s choice, which will be made after contemplation, could shake the league game. 토토사이트
