Question is a little too yes or no for me. Is Paul worth 35% of the Pacers Salary? Is anyone worth that much of a 15 man roster Salary? I have no doubt the Ps will pay PG up to 35%. The important part is, what do we surround him with? Teams like Cleveland, GSW and many others to deeply into LT to surround their Superstars with adequate help. Will the Pacers? If not, then there is a good possibility the Pacers will pay PG his money and not be able to make the team any better than it is right now.
Will paying PG 35% of total team salary make the team any or much better than we are right now? That's the real question for me.
