Myler Turner responded to an offseason in which his name appeared in trade rumors with a Defensive Player of the Year type of season with the Indiana Pacers.

With the Pacers having a disappointing season and questions remaining about whether Turner and Domantas Sabonis complement each other in the frontcourt, he could resurface in trade talks. Turner, however, would like to remain with the Pacers.

"I love Indianapolis and there’s no place I’d rather be than here – it’s my second home and the fans are the best the NBA has to offer," said Turner. "In terms of any trade rumors, I’m really just trying to stick to basketball. I’m laser-focused on being the best I can be on the court, supporting my teammates and trying not to get wrapped up in rumors. And at the end of the day this is a business I’m fully aware of that and conduct myself as such, I’m confident in my skillset and growth that I feel I’d thrive anywhere I’m at.

"The grass is greener wherever I’m at."

Turner is signed through the 22-23 season.
