The Pacers made a splash shortly after the NBA free agency period tipped off with reports of a trade that will bring Malcolm Brogdon to Indy.

To complete the deal for Brogdon, a restricted free agent, the Pacers sent a first-round pick and two future second round picks to Milwaukee. Woj quickly followed up that report with news that Brogdon agreed to a 4-year, $85 million deal to put him in Blue and Gold through his prime years.

Brogdon averaged 15.6 points, shooting over 42 percent from three in 64 games for the Bucks last season. In fact, he finished the season with 90-50-40 numbers making over 54 percent of his field goals and almost 93 percent from the free throw line.

Along with the ability to make shots, Brogdon can play on or off the ball on offense and at 6’5 with a 6’11 wingspan, has all of the defensive acumen to get Dan Burke excited about setting up his defense.

With the addition of Brogdon to go along with Jeremy Lamb and T.J. Warren, the Pacers continue to focus on versatile wing and backcourt players that can guard multiple spots and fit nicely around Victor Oladipo when Vic is ready to go once again.

Stay tuned, free agency continues...
