Pascal Siakam trade details: Pacers land All-Star forward from Raptors for Bruce Brown Jr., picks

The Raptors continued what has been a transformative season by trading one of the most important players in the history of the organization.

Toronto has agreed to send Pascal Siakam to the Pacers in exchange for Bruce Brown Jr., Jordan Nwora and picks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Siakam, the No. 27 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, is one of the Raptors’ greatest success stories. He went from averaging 4.2 points per game as a rookie to becoming a key contributor on the 2019 championship team. He earned multiple All-Star (2019-20, 2022-23) and All-NBA (2019-20, 2021-22) selections, and he won the 2018-19 Most Improved Player award.

The 29-year-old leaves Toronto as the fifth-leading scorer in franchise history behind only DeMar DeRozan, Kyle Lowry, Chris Bosh and Vince Carter.

Here is everything you need to know about the reported trade between the Raptors and Pacers.
