The Pacers and Celtics announced their trade Saturday, sending veteran point guard Malcolm Brogdon from Indiana to Boston in exchange for a 2023 first-round pick and five players: Nik Stauskas, Daniel Theis, Aaron Nesmith, former IU star Juwan Morgan and Malik Fitts. However, a league source told IndyStar on Sunday that the Pacers are waiting for Brogdon to pass a physical so the trade can become official and Nesmith can become eligible for Indiana’s Summer League team in Las Vegas. Nesmith attended the Pacers’ Summer League opener against Charlotte on Friday and sat courtside at Thomas & Mack Center with his new teammates Jalen Smith, Tyrese Haliburton and Oshae Brissett.
Jalen Smith signed a three-year deal with the Pacers that includes a player option for the 2024-25 season and a trade kicker, a league source told Fieldhouse Files. So it’s really a two-year, $9.7 million deal with player protections should he get injured or traded. After the first two years, he’ll be free to sign a more substantial deal — with the Pacers or elsewhere — should he outplay the value of his contract, which is expected.
