NBA Rumors: Pacers Could Swap Victor Oladipo For CJ McCollum Before 2021 Trade Deadline

As the 2020-21 NBA season goes deeper, several interesting trade ideas continue to surface in the league. These include a hypothetical blockbuster deal that would allow Indiana Pacers shooting guard Victor Oladipo and Portland Trail Blazers sharpshooter CJ McCollum to swap teams before the 2021 trade deadline. The idea of an Oladipo-McCollum deal was proposed by Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report.

In the suggested trade scenario, the Pacers would be sending a package that includes Oladipo, Doug McDermott, and a lottery-protected 2021 first-round pick to the Trail Blazers in exchange for McCollum and CJ Elleby. If the potential deal becomes a reality, Buckley believes that it would benefit both the Pacers and the Trail Blazers. For Portland, the proposed scenario would allow them to replace McCollum with another All-Star caliber shooting guard that would provide significant improvement with their performance on the defensive end of the floor.
