According to Zach Lowe, several teams would like to see Victor Oladipo back in action before engaging in trade talks with the Pacers.
Oladipo returned from a ruptured quad tendon last season but didn't look anything like his peak self, and his trade value might be at its lowest point right now. While it's been reported that Oladipo wants out of Indiana, a deal right now probably doesn't net the Pacers much of value. Lowe speculates that Oladipo and Indiana could end up negotiating an extension, too. Apparently the Heat, once a prime suitor, have backed off a bit, while the Knicks have had past interest but might want to wait and see how Oladipo looks next season. Additionally, the Bucks are interested, as previously reported, but Lowe says no substantive talks have taken place yet. Oladipo's down season might have knocked him from the top tier of available players, but a bounceback campaign could prove fruitful for all parties and get the trade rumors swirling again.
