Siakam, who joined Toronto as the 27th pick in the first round in 2016, is a forward who shines with two All-Star selections, two All-NBA teams, and one award for skill development. He also made great contributions to Toronto’s first championship since its foundation in 2019. He is a player with strong long arms and athletic ability, and has the quality of both offense and defense.

Siakam has recorded 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists on average this season. In Indiana, he will play with Tyreece Halliburton, a rising star guard in the NBA. Indiana, which has reorganized its team around Halliburton, aims for more than just a playoff as Siakam joins the forward line, which was lacking.

The question is whether Siakam will renew his contract or not. Siakam, who has yet to sign an extension contract with Toronto, will become an FA after the end of this season. Indiana has given three first-round picks in a trade that can be a half-year rental. As such, Siakam is expected to make every effort to renew his contract.

Toronto sent out Siakam following OG Anunobi, and built a new roster centered on Scottie Barnes. Bruce Brown, who is going to Toronto, is averaging 12.1 points and 4.7 rebounds this season and will change his uniform again a year before signing a FA contract with Indiana.
