Myles Turner said he expects the Pacers to be in the playoffs next season.
"A lot of people look at us as young team that’s going to rebuild, but we’re a young team that’s trying to compete," said Turner. "We’ve got a lot of guys who can come in and make an impact right away. I expect to make the playoffs this year." This is what he's supposed to say, but the reality is that it will be tough for Indiana to compete out East after losing Paul George this offseason. However, the departure of PG-13 should open up a ton of opportunity for Turner, so he should easily be able to flirt with top-20 value next season.
