Cory Joseph Heads Back to Indiana – But Will He Stay?

In a move that surprised many, the Indiana Pacers have acquired veteran guard Cory Joseph in a trade with the Golden State Warriors. However, there’s a twist: reports suggest Joseph might be waived by the Pacers shortly after arriving. This unexpected turn of events has left fans wondering – what does this trade mean for both teams and for Joseph himself?

For the Warriors, the trade seems like a way to clear some cap space and open up a roster spot. Joseph, while a respected veteran with championship experience, hasn’t seen much playing time in Golden State this season. His departure creates an opportunity for younger players like Lester Quinones to step up.

The Pacers, on the other hand, are in a more intriguing situation. Their recent trade deadline activity saw them acquire Doug McDermott and trade away Buddy Hield, indicating a desire to shake things up and potentially contend for a playoff spot. Joseph’s experience and defensive prowess could be valuable assets in that pursuit.

But then there’s the looming possibility of him being waived. This raises questions about the Pacers’ true intentions. Did they simply acquire him for the draft pick and cash considerations? Or is there a chance they’ll have a change of heart and keep him on board?


For Joseph, this trade must feel like a rollercoaster. Returning to a familiar team like Indiana could be a welcome change, but the uncertainty surrounding his future adds a layer of anxiety. Will he get a chance to contribute and potentially even revive his career? Or will this be a short-lived reunion followed by another release?

Only time will tell how this story unfolds. One thing’s for sure: the Cory Joseph saga has taken an unexpected turn, leaving fans and analysts alike eager to see what the next chapter holds. Will he find a home in Indiana? Or will he be on the move yet again? Stay tuned for the next episode in this intriguing NBA drama.
