Reports: Pacers send G Buddy Hield to Sixers

The Indiana Pacers reportedly are sending shooting guard Buddy Hield to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward Marcus Morris, shooting guard Furkan Korkmaz and three second-round picks, according to multiple reports Thursday.

Hield, 31, is in the final year of a four-year, $94 million contract and reportedly has said he was open to a trade.

In 52 games (28 starts) this season for the Pacers, Hield is averaging 12.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 0.8 steals — all below his career averages.

Hield was the sixth pick of the 2016 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Pelicans out of Oklahoma. He was dealt to the Sacramento Kings in February 2017.

The Kings traded Hield, Tyrese Haliburton and Tristan Thompson to the Indiana Pacers on Feb. 8, 2022, for Justin Holiday, Jeremy Lamb, Domantas Sabonis and a 2023 second-round draft pick, which became forward Jordan Walsh of Arkansas.

For his career, Hield averages 15.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.9 steals in 600 games (397 starts).

Morris, 34, is sidelined with a foot injury but reportedly is not expected to be out long. He averaged 6.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 37 appearances this season with the Sixers — his seventh NBA team.

Korkmaz, 26, played in 35 games this season with the Sixers, averaging 2.5 points and 0.9 rebounds off the bench. The Turkish player has been with the Sixers his entire career, averaging 6.8 points in 328 games (49 starts).
