Sabonis is a 23-year-old Gonzaga product, who has been productive for the Pacers over the last few years. He has averaged 10.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game over his career. Last season, he averaged 14.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.
The Pacers will have a stacked backcourt with Myles Turner and Sabonis. Both players will work with Victor Oladipo to try to get the team back to the playoffs.
