Hield looking to leave Indiana.
Indiana Pacers shooter Buddy Hield has begun talks with other teams to explore a trade, The Athletic reported on Wednesday (Nov. 21).
Hield, the sixth overall pick in the 2016 draft, is one of the best shooters in the NBA. He has made more 3-pointers (1,381) than any other player in the NBA over the last five seasons, surpassing Steph Curry (1,261) and Damian Lillard (1,118). He doesn’t have much hesitation in shooting and can hit threes from all areas of the floor.
Hield wore an Indiana uniform in 2022 after being included in the Tyreese Halliburton-Domantas Sabonis trade. After increasingly disappointing in Sacramento, he has been on an upward trajectory since joining Indiana, averaging 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 42.5 percent shooting from 3-point range last season.
Indiana made an offer to sign Hield to an extension, but he declined. As a result, negotiations between the two sides have stalled. Indiana is reportedly exploring a trade for Hield, whose contract expires at the end of this season.카지노사이트
The Athletic reported, “Indiana offered Buddy Hield an extension, but it did not satisfy Hield. After negotiations stalled, Hield and Indiana began talking to explore a potential trade.”
The Athletic also reported that several teams are expected to make a run at Hield. Hield, who has been traded in the past, has been strongly linked to the Lakers and has been rumored to move to Dallas.
Despite the ups and downs, Hield is definitely an option for teams looking for an explosive shooter. Will Hield be in a new team’s uniform before the season starts?
