What is so wrong with him taking a deal for 10 million a year? That much money is beyond my wildest dreams. And it is to do something he loves in a place that loves him.
This guy was THE power broker of the NBA in the 90's AND he is Roy's agent.... Unless that extension is WAY over and above what they THINK they'll get on the open market... Mr. Falk isn't going to let Roy anywhere near a pen!
Able, the fact that the Pacers have not offered Roy an extension isn't that big of a deal considering it would just be a waste of paper... unless it's a max deal!
Like it or not... SOMEONE is going to PAY for ROY and it isn't going to be these penny ante pipe dream sums of $10M/per that keep getting floated around here!

...Still "flying casual"
We can only offer a 4 year extension right now. If Roy goes to FA (or RFA actually), we can then offer a 5 year contract. Other teams are limited to 4 year offers.
Marc is making around $14m, but Nene's only making $13m.
As posted by count55 in the other Roy thread, the new CBA max for Roy would look like this:
So, the max offer that Roy can get from another team is 4 years, $55m. We can offer 5 years, $74m - but hopefully it doesn't get to that range.

We can offer 5 now, would also put Roy in a position where he can perhaps after that contract get another top notch one for 4 or 5 (@29) instead of 30+ 2 yr contracts
I said it before; there is no reason not to use your option to assign him with the 5th year.
So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.
If you've done 6 impossible things today?
Then why not have Breakfast at Milliways!
One reason not to sign him now is if Falk is demanding a max deal then there is no downside to waiting.
The thing that I found most curious is that they haven't even opened discussions with Hibbert.
Perhaps they feel it is best to keep the cap space for next off season maximized.
Either way, I think the only reason we should extend him now would be to save some money. There is no reason to extend him if it's going to be near the max. We'd be better off giving him that in the summer.
