The Indiana Pacers have finalized a trade for guard Jalen Lecque.

Indiana sent forward TJ Leaf and a seventh-round pick in 2027 to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of the deal.

Oklahoma City previously acquired Lecque in a trade from the Phoenix Suns on Nov. 16, a swap involving Chris Paul.

Lecque went undrafted in 2019 but earned a spot on the Suns’ roster for the 2019-20 season and appeared in five regular-season games. Lecque also played 33 games for the Suns’ NBA G League affiliate in Northern Arizona.

Leaf was selected by the Pacers with the 18th overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft. He played in 139 games over three seasons with Indiana.
