Pacers don't expect Victor Oladipo to sign extension

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, rumblings have surfaced that Victor Oladipo is not interested in sticking around Indiana long-term, sparking his name to hit the trade market. 

While the Pacers try their best to land Mike D'Antoni as their next bench boss, in hopes a move for D'Antoni and his playing style with lure Oladipo to stay, considering it could set him up to have a career season.

The Pacers went 45-28, finishing 4th in the East before the NBA's Bubble restart and quite frankly surprised some people around the league. Oladipo only played 19 games due to injury and there's been tons of speculation about his commitment to the team, after he announced he was sitting out the restart through Shams Charania of The Athletic, without notifying the Pacers brass first. 

Oladipo is a knock-down scorer who can help any team, so expect a ton of teams to come calling, even if the Pacers hire Mike D'Antoni. 

There's one team out west with a huge trade chip, who just so happens to be looking for another scorer...
