The 2016–17 Indiana Pacers season was Indiana's 50th season as a franchise and 41st season in the NBA. On May 5, 2016, despite making the playoffs, Pacers' president Larry Bird announced that Frank Vogel's contract would not be renewed, citing a need for "a new voice" to lead the players.[1][2] On May 16, 2016, the Pacers promoted their assistant head coach Nate McMillan to become their new head coach.[3]

The Pacers would make it to the playoffs, securing the 7th seed. They met the 2nd seeded defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the First Round, in which they were swept in four games.

On April 28, 2017, Larry Bird stepped down as the President of the Indiana Pacers.

On June 30, 2017, following the season, Paul George was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
