Indiana Pacers Acquire Jeremy Lamb and Malcolm Brogdon

The Pacers are currently acquiring two guards during the free agency moratorium period. Jeremy Lamb will sign with Indiana, while Brogdon, as a restricted free agent, will sign with the Bucks then be traded to the Pacers according to multiple reports.

Lamb, 27, has spent his career with the Thunder and Hornets. The former UConn Huskie is getting a three-year $31.5 million deal. Last season with the Hornets, Lamb averaged 15.3 points per game, which was the greatest output of his career.

The Bucks drafted Brogdon in the second round, but he blossomed into a good player early in his career, winning the Rookie of the Year Award in 2016-2017. He has averaged 12.8 points and 3.6 assists per game in his career. Brogdon is now getting a four-year, $85 million deal.

Adding two guards will give Indiana options once Victor Oladipo recovers from injury. They can play Brogdon at the point guard spot or have Oladipo run the point and have Brogdon and Lamb play off the ball. Either way, these moves should help the Pacers cope with the loss of Bojan Bogdanovic who will reportedly leave for the Jazz in free agency.
