Indiana Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle is thrilled about how new forward Obi Toppin will fit with the group’s fast-break offense.
NBA.com: Brown left the champions in Denver to sign with your team. Haliburton planted his flag by signing a five-year, $206 million extension. You like your two first-rounders, forward Jarace Walker and Ben Sheppard, on the heels of the Bennedict Mathurin-Andrew Nembhard draft in 2022. All signs pointing up?
Carlisle: Our draft has been terrific the last two years. And the acquisition of [Knicks 2018 lottery pick] Obi Toppin is going to give him an opportunity and gets us one of the best transition players in the world on a team that led the league in fast-break points [18.1 per game] last year.
