Hield has been included in trade rumors since September when The Athletic reported the Pacers and Hield began discussing finding the 31-year-old a potential trade to another team after extension talks stalled.
Hield is in the last year of a four-year contract, earning $19.2 million this season.
He joined the Pacers during the 2021-22 season in the Tyrese Haliburton trade from the Sacramento Kings and immediately emerged as a positive veteran leader and productive running mate alongside Haliburton.
Hield is averaging 12.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season.
