Turner, who is 26, is averaging the most points and rebounds of his career (17.5 points and 7.9 rebounds per game). He is also blocking 2.4 shots per game for the Pacers, who are currently ninth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 24-27.
Turner has been talked about being traded all season because he's in the last year of his contract. With this move, though, it's clear that the Pacers see the big man as a key part of their future, which also includes rising stars like Tyrese Haliburton and Bennedict Mathurin.
