Spoiler alert: Losing Paul George is a major thing.
Based on NBA Math’s total points included (TPA) metric, the haul–if you can call it –brought back in return couldn’t quite match his production throughout the 2016-17 season. Whereas the superstar small forward finished with 150.42 TPA, Victor Oladipo (minus-58.86 TPA) and Domantas Sabonis (minus-159.61) fell just a bit short.
Obviously, the Pacers purchased within these kids for their long term potential. They ought to improve during the 2017-18 campaign, and the exact same is the case of Myles Turner, who is a good bet to become a first-time All-Star during the upcoming season. This roster does have some upside down, particularly when factoring in Cory Joseph and T.J. Leaf.
But is that enough to overcome the departures of both George and C.J. Miles? Probably not, which explains why a steep dropoff ought to be expected after the Pacers somehow surpassed expectations to complete with a 42-40 record lest year.
These players will be learning in featured characters, and losses will happen quite frequently. But that’s not a thing that is bad. Let the up-and-comers grow, maximize the potential of draft choices during the 2018 prospect pageant and reap the benefits in the future.
