The Pacers finished 45-37 last season, advancing to the coveted postseason but falling short of their ultimate goal. This year, they rightfully have their eyes on a shiny prize that they hope to attain for the first time in a few decades.
All eyes are on the future, and a roster that perfectly blends youthful talent and savvy veterans is likely to produce bountiful results. The Pacers traded away their only 2016 first-round draft pick, confident that the future will unfold according to their plans. In a division featuring the defending champions, the squad will need to hit the ground running during this season. All who buy tickets will be able to witness the 2016-17 Pacers push for greatness.
