Bogdan Bogdanovic has attracted the interest of the Indiana Pacers, who are willing to work on a sign-and-trade deal with the Kings.

The Pacers are willing to offer center Myles Turner to Sacramento, in exchange for Bogdanovic, says Jason Ham of NBC Sports California.

“The Indiana Pacers struck out on a Gordon Hayward trade with the Boston Celtics when a source confirmed that Boston’s trade demands became too excessive.

Indy was willing to part with center Myles Turner in the transaction, but when the Celtics asked for more, the Pacers passed. Would the Pacers, who sources say have shown interest in Bogdanovic, consider a similar swap?

The salaries wouldn’t be difficult to work out. In fact, Turner has three years and $54 million remaining on his contract with the Pacers, with each of those seasons coming in at the $18 million mark, the same amount Bogdanovic is projected to receive,” Ham reports, via RealGM.

The Atlanta Hawks remain the frontrunner to sign Bogdanovic, who is a restricted free agent. Therefore, Sacramento will have 48 hours to match any offer the Serbian guard receives.
