Rumours have circulated that Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers’ star player, could be traded soon. He has survived several seasons without being traded, and he did not trade. Despite not being able to trade him, the Pacers are willing to try to sign DeAndre Ayton. This should indicate that Myles Turner will be moving soon.

Turner addressed the trade rumors, via Andscape
“I didn’t look up what Tanzania was like on Google. I didn’t look up what Africa was like. I didn’t really even ask for people’s opinions. I just wanted to go into it super clear-headed. For me personally, with all this, the wildness that goes on with the season and offseason trade talk, I wanted to put all that behind me. Get off social media for a bit. Turn my phone off and not talk to anybody in the Western world. I was able just to be completely in the present and completely in the moment. And that was the most rewarding part for me. This is my fifth offseason with trade rumors going on. ‘He’s going to land here; he’s going to do this. He going to do that.’ I am finally numb to it, in a sense. So that’s another thing I was also proud of myself. I was able to immerse myself in the experience of Africa as opposed to my personal life or selfish reasons.
My mentality was already just up and down with dealing with the [foot] injury. Basically, that took me out for nearly half of last season. So, I was just yearning and looking for somewhere else to find some peace. And I feel like this trip was the perfect thing for it. I wasn’t necessarily using it for that, but that’s what it turned into. I’m very happy that I went, and I plan on going next couple of offseasons, too. I want to continue to make this a hopefully annual thing.”
It will be interesting to see if Indiana eventually decides to trade him, but it seems likely that it will happen at some point in the near future.
