The Indiana Pacers had a quieter summer than most. Aside from signing NBA two-way specialist Malcolm Brogdon, they did little to add to what they already had.
Instead, the Pacers will be going into next season with Brogdon, a healthy Victor Oladipo, and a highly motivated state of mind. They will fare better than most, especially in the East. Make no mistake: they are an opponent to be feared.
With another addition, a guy like Bradley Beal, for example, Indiana could improve their standing even more so, with the potential to become the favorites in the East. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, that scenario could actually play out if both sides warm up to the idea.
