the pacers payroll is currently at about $74,000,000 for next year....this will only go up if we resign free agents dale davis, james jones, or john edwards....this also doesnt include the MLE if we were to use it(part of it may need to be used to resign dd)...this also doesnt include the guaranteed contract that comes with a 1st round draft pick....

it is quite possible we could be staring a payroll of over $80,000,000....yikes

that would be good enuff for 3rd highest behind only the knicks and the mavericks...thats a wee bit scary.....especially for a small market team....thank god for the good deal on the conseco lease....

u cant help but think theyre gonna try to cut some salary...somehow....gives some contracts away....they almost have to....i cant believe that number is part of the desired budget....should be interesting....
