Raptors Trade Siakam To Pacers: Odds, Reaction

The trade talk and speculation has come to an end, as the Toronto Raptors will reportedly be sending Pascal Siakam to the Indiana Pacers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

News had picked up considerably in the hours leading up to the move about how the Pacers were working feverishly to make a trade happen with Toronto. Indiana had possessed the second-best betting odds as far as what Siakam's next team would be beyond the 29-year-old forward simply staying put north of the border. 

Pascal Siakam's Team after Trade Deadline (As of Jan. 16)

Toronto Raptors+160
Indiana Pacers+500
Dallas Mavericks+550
Golden State Warriors+600
Atlanta Hawks+850
Sacramento Kings+850

Siakam is still set to enter unrestricted free agency this summer, yet Indiana now holds his bird rights, and there at least appears to be mutual interest in maintaining a working relationship for years to come. 

Oddsmakers believe this move will improve the Pacers' chances in the race to hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy, if ever so slightly. Indiana's odds improved from +7500 to +6000 after the news broke of the trade.
