Rick Carlisle Reacts to Indiana Pacers Acquiring Tyrese Haliburton & Trading Domantas Sabonis
Carlisle: “The hope is that this trade is a successful trade for both teams”
Rick Carlisle spoke on the Pacers acquiring Tyrese Haliburton, Tristan Thompson, and Buddy Hield.
“Tyrese Haliburton is an elite young point guard that affects the game positively in many many ways. Buddy Hield is an elite shooter and has been for the last several years. Tristan Thompson is a proven veteran center who was a starter on a championship team in 2016.”
“In the case of Tyrese, he has a chance to continue to grow and to continue to get better,” continued Carlisle. “We think he’s a great fit with Malcolm Brogdon. It essentially gives us two playmakers in the backcourt and a lot of versatility.”
