Myles Turner Rejects Pacers Extension Offers

Myles Turner and the Indiana Pacers have failed to come to terms on a contract extension. According to NBA Insider Marc Stein, Turner has reportedly rejected extension offers from the Pacers.

Previous reports indicated that if Turner and the Pacers don't agree on an extension, Indiana will look to trade the 26-year-old before the NBA's February 9th trade deadline.

Turner has been in the rumor mill for quite a while now. 

The Pacers were previously choosing between keeping him or Domantas Sabonis, and ultimately decided on trading the latter to the Sacramento Kings for rising guard Tyrese Haliburton last season.

But given that the two sides have failed to agree on a new deal, it seems like Turner's days with the franchise that drafted him 11th overall in 2015 may now be coming to an end.

Nonetheless, it may be smart for Indiana to cash in on Turner now if they don't have him in their future plans moving forward. 

The 6-foot-11 big man is having a career year in 2022-23, turning in a career-best 16.7 points and 7.9 rebounds, while shooting 54.9 percent from the field (also a career-best) and 38.0 percent from beyond the three-point arc.
