On Friday, reports surfaced that the Houston Rockets had been in contact with the Indiana Pacers regarding a potential trade. The Pacers are reportedly looking for a veteran player that will help them in the immediate future and are willing to get rid of their 13th overall pick in this month’s NBA Draft to help them get there.
In the aftermath of this report, questions began to ensue about which player the Pacers could be seeking from the Rockets. The report is that the Pacers are seeking a player that could be under team control for multiple years, and not just a player that would be able to help them for one season.
3 trades to send Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon to the Pacers
The name that immediately comes to mind is Eric Gordon, as he fits the bill of a veteran, considering his 13 years in the NBA. In addition, Gordon is from Indiana, where he was the state’s Mr. Basketball during his senior season, before committing to the Indiana University Hoosiers.
Assuming Gordon is the player the Pacers have interest in, let’s take a look at 3 trades that could send the 2016-17 Sixth Man of the Year back home to Indiana.
