Multiple teams have indicated that the Pacers are open to listening to pitches on Malcolm Brogdon, according to Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports. Brogdon is only in the second season of a four-year, $85MM contract, but Goodwill suggests that Indiana is comfortable with the idea of Caris LeVert manning the point if the team gets a deal it likes for Brogdon.
In addition to Brogdon, another Pacers point guard – Aaron Holiday – is thought to be available. A report last week indicated Indiana was seeking a first-round pick for Holiday, which Goodwill confirms. According to Goodwill, Holiday seems to have “fallen out of favor” somewhat in Indiana.
Here’s more from Goodwill:
- The Trail Blazers are among the teams with interest in Cavaliers center JaVale McGee, per Goodwill. McGee could be had via trade — it remains to be seen whether he and Cleveland would work out a buyout if he stays put at the deadline.
- The Nets are dangling Spencer Dinwiddie and a second-round pick as they look to bolster their bench, sources tell Yahoo Sports. Brooklyn has discussed players like Avery Bradley, Kendrick Nunn, and Maurice Harkless with the Heat, Goodwill says.
- Kelly Oubre‘s camp believes the Warriors forward is capable of getting a “top-10 deal” in free agency this offseason, per Goodwill. Presumably, that means one of the top 10 most valuable free agent contracts signed this summer.
- Goodwill suggests that former Cavaliers executive Brock Aller – who is now the Knicks‘ VP of strategy – is worth keeping an eye on in the event that Cleveland moves on from current general manager Koby Altman at some point. Aller has a long-standing relationship with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, Goodwill notes.

I don’t like the idea of trading Dinwiddie. I still think they’ll be able to use his DPE and get him back in time for the playoffs.
Oubre is top 10 free agent in summer
Not really expecting that Indiana would look for trade Brogdon, curious to see if something will happen
Top-10 of the entirety of the NBA?
Top-10 of the guys in the NBA named Kelly?
I assume it means top 10 most valuable free agent contracts signed this summer, but it’s not 100% clear. I’ll add a sentence to the post about that.
Altman isn’t good
Cavs need new GM
Brogdon thing is weird. Probably the only significant player that’s reported to be “available” that I think the Knicks should kick the tires on. If he’s truly available. Have my doubts.
Obrue has picked up his game. He’s more a slasher scorer and imo does not mix well with Wilkins. A team who needs a SG should go for Obrue. He’s a big SG who could avg 20 on a team like Rockets. Even Spurs, Mavs, Cavs should be eyeing him. Only 25 still think he is improving.
