This is basically just bookkeeping as the Pacers have announced they have signed their first-round pick (#26 overall), center Miles Plumlee of Duke.

We don’t technically know the terms, but all first-round picks get the first two years of guaranteed salary with team options for years three and four. And the amount of the annual salary is defined by a predetermined rookie scale that hands out cash based upon where you were picked. Last year’s #26 pick, Jordan Hamilton of the Denver Nuggets, made $1.1 million his rookie season and will get another $1.1 million guaranteed in year two.

Expect Plumlee’s contract to be nearly identical to that.

I hope so, way more than I believe it, at this point.

Was it a change in the new CBA that only the first two years are guaranteed, or am I completely misremembering it being three years?

Yeah, no kidding.

I really feel bad for Plumlee only because he's getting all this flak from everyone through no fault of his own for being drafted a lot higher than he was projected to be. I am glad that he's set for the next couple of seasons....but I will freely admit that I'd be more excited when we hear that Orlando has been signed to a long-term contract.

Its not he was going to be able to hold out, it is predetermined after all.

If they drafted him to be Hibbert's replacement I'm going to be pissed.

Just can't get excited about a 23yr old rookie....who is still a project.

I'm trying to be optimistic about the Pacers draft, mainly by pretending we drafted OJ first and Chumlee in the second round.
