Indiana Pacers Rumors
The new direction of the team, with the additions of Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb, T.J. Warren, T.J. McConnell, Justin Holiday and JaKarr Sampson, has given Oladipo confidence to say at least this: “Playoffs, for sure. Definitely.”
It’s on to Oladipo’s new family starting with Brogdon, who was the big-ticket item coming in via an $85 million sign-and-trade deal. “I feel like we got some great additions. We got a chance to be really special. I feel like the league is wide open,” Oladipo said. “I was excited for the opportunity to play with (Brogdon). I know what type of player he is, the level that he plays on and has been playing on the last couple of years from Milwaukee. To have him as an addition is pretty big for us.”
The USA World Cup finalists roster currently includes 13 players — Harrison Barnes (Sacramento Kings); Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics); Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets); Kyle Kuzma (Los Angeles Lakers); Brook Lopez (Milwaukee Bucks); Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks); Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz); Mason Plumlee (Denver Nuggets), Marcus Smart (Boston Celtics); Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics); Myles Turner (Indiana Pacers); Kemba Walker (Boston Celtics); and Derrick White (San Antonio Spurs).
