Amidst swirling rumors of Myles Turner’s future with the team and Indiana’s ill-fated pursuit of Deandre Ayton, there’s a chance for the Chicago Bulls to swoop in here and steal away a quality player from a team that clearly wants to enact a roster shake-up.

After going undrafted in 2019, Oshae Brissett has fought hard to make a name for himself in this league. He would cycle throw several 10-day contracts in both Toronto and Indiana before finally landing himself a full-time gig with the Pacers during the 2021-22 season.

Brissett averaged 9.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in just 23 minutes per game last year with the Pacers. Not awe-inspiring numbers for a starter, but production you’d be very happy with for a role player coming off the bench.

Shooting an acceptable 35% from deep, Brissett offers solid shooting, rebounding, and defense off the bench. Oshae’s 6’7, 210-pound frame would also add some much-needed size to a Bulls team that’s lacking on the interior.

The Pacers should be interested in this exchange since they’d be acquiring the player with a higher perceived upside while also finding a starting-caliber guard to pair next to Tyrese Haliburton now that Malcolm Brogdon is out of the picture.

Meanwhile, the Pacers seem intent on promoting Jalen Smith and Isaiah Jackson in the frontcourt behind Myles Turner, while Buddy Hield and Bennedict Mathurin will chew up most of the minutes available on the wing. With Brissett set to receive a payday, he’s the odd man out here and Indiana could look to rebalance their roster in this swap for Coby.
