The Indiana Pacers have acquired All-Star forward Pascal Siakam in a trade with the Toronto Raptors, sending Bruce Brown, Jordan Nwora, and three first-round picks to the Raptors.

In a separate deal, the New Orleans Pelicans sent Kira Lewis Jr. and a 2024 second-round pick to the Pacers, who then shipped Lewis to the Raptors.

Two of the first-round picks going to the Raptors are for 2024, including Indiana's own selection and the lesser of a Utah/Houston/LA Clippers/Oklahoma City pick.

The third pick is for 2026 from Indiana. Pacers president Kevin Pritchard expressed excitement about Siakam's addition, highlighting his offensive skillset and defensive versatility.

Siakam, who spent all eight NBA seasons with the Raptors, is averaging 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists this season.

The 29-year-old is expected to negotiate a new contract with the Pacers this summer.

The team, currently sixth in the Eastern Conference, is the highest-scoring in the league, and Siakam's agent believes his future looks bright in Indiana.

The Pacers waived veteran forward James Johnson on the same day. Brown, heading to his fourth team in three seasons, is averaging a career-high 12.1 points, while Nwora scores 5.2 points per game.

The Pelicans, by moving Lewis, aim to get below the luxury tax threshold. Siakam, a two-time All-NBA selection and NBA champion with the Raptors in 2019, will face his former team three more times this season.
