According to multiple reports the Indiana Pacers have received calls from several teams regarding center Myles Turner and from all accounts it sounds like the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are getting serious with their offers. Names rumored include Kyle Kuzma and Obi Toppin. 

The trade deadline is March 25th and this week is going to be as interested as ever as some big names like Turner have surfaced as available. The Charlotte Hornets and New Orleans Pelicans have also reached out to the Pacers to find out their asking price on Turner.

So far this season Turner is averaging 13.2 points, 6.6. rebounds and is leading the league with 3.4 blocks per game. Some feel with more touches on offense he could easily become a 20-10 player in this league.

The 24-year-old Turner has two seasons left on his contract, paying him $18 million per. It's going to take a huge trade package to get the Pacers to budge, but from all accounts they don't even realize how important he truly is.
