De’Aaron Fox: “Tyrese Haliburton has a huge opportunity in Indiana” | NBA

Change was expected in Sacramento but De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton were expected to stand still. The executives pressed the button anyway on Tuesday night, sending the second to Indiana for Domantas Sabonis in a six-man trade.

Inevitably, Fox was surprised by this announcement, which he did not learn from social networks.

“Before it all came out, Tyrese wrote to the band”says the playmaker to NBC Sports. “Everyone was surprised and thought he was lying. Then, bam, the news came out. We were shocked. “

In just his second season in the league and in Sacramento, Haliburton was sacrificed to bring in an All-Star.

“You build relationships with people and things like that happen in the sports world. He knows it. Some of the best players in the league have been transferred, he is aware of that. He’s definitely a player we’re going to miss.” says Fox. “For someone like Tyrese, it’s difficult,” continues Harrison Barnes. “It marked us, it was an emotionally charged day. It’s hard to see players you’ve become close to leaving. But it’s part of the business. “

The back will arrive in Indiana in a more than average team (13th in the East) and which lost in a few days its two best scorers, the Lithuanian and Caris LeVert.

The Pacers even remain on four straight defeats and this end of the season could be very long. Nonetheless, Fox feels his ex-teammate Haliburton can do some good things on his new team.

“Indiana just got a very good player back”assures Fox. “He is ready to take charge. They just traded Caris LeVert, and Malcolm Brogdon is out, so Tyrese has a big, big, huge opportunity. He is a great player and he will take this chance. “
