More on this storyline

The Pacers and Phoenix Suns had brief dialogue around Sabonis and Deandre Ayton, multiple sources say. It did not get far, sources say, and may have been mostly informal and broadly exploratory — and aimed at the future rather than anything now. No formal offer was ever made by either side. The Kings coming with Haliburton rendered everything else moot for the Pacers. The Suns not immediately hanging up the phone and tossing it out a high-story window at the prospect of shaking anything up — even in the offseason — is notable, though. -via ESPN / February 11, 2022

Scott Agness: Rick Carlisle acknowledges the Pacers “major trade” made today. “Domas Sabonis has been amazing to work with the last few months. Justin Holiday, his career speaks for himself. … And Jeremy Lamb is a pro and a very accomplished player. “We’ll miss them.” -via Twitter @ScottAgness / February 8, 2022

San Amick: One minor update on the Kings-Pacers specifics: The second rounder that goes to Sacramento is 2023. It conveys if it’s 31-55, source says -via Twitter @sam_amick / February 8, 2022
