    What is up with the report the 1st 2 years of the deal are front loaded at 19 million each? If so the Pacers have no cap room now.
    The Pacers don't have to match until July 14. They can negotiate and sign any free agents until then.

    As for the front loaded-ness, I believe the extra money is just signing bonus money and won't count against the salary cap.

    Yes. It's like a store saying they ad match. He signed a deal with Portland and if Indiana matches that deal will be honored by the Pacers.
    Does Roy have the ability to change that if the Pacers are offering a fifth year?

    I think they have to decrease by some percentage every year, do not think they can make a front loaded contract like that, so my guess is that it is false..

    Yes, but only on the condition that he doesn't physically sign the offer sheet.

    It counts against the salary cap regardless.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    It would have happened by now... Definitely not in line with Roy's personality either...

    I believe this can only happen if he does not sign the offer sheet for Portland, once he does that then it is set.

    From all reports, the decision makers weren't nearly as sure.

    Now Pacers can trade Danny to have cap space. LoL!

    Whatever is on Portland's offer sheet is what his deal will be, whether it be with Indiana or Portland. There is no more negotiating with either team or anyone else at that point.

    bonuses count verus the cap if they didn't every one would do them.


    the bonus just counts over the 4 years like a base salary.

    Good decision, but I never had a doubt.

    I did adjust the thread title so people would know this is being reported.

    Crap, well nevermind.

    I guess if Simon wants to avoid luxury tax territory, this will might limit what the Pacers can offer free agents. Maybe that's why they were hesitant all this time.

    Obviously Roy is going to be overpaid. But the consequence of not re-signing him is significantly worse than what it will be for him to be somewhat overpaid.
    That is fine, I just don't feel like seeing the thread, lol, and really no one knows if it is a overpayment until the contract is near it's end.

    Why are people surprised about this news? I expected them to match it all this time.

    What are the chances we try and sign somebody else BEFORE we match the offer sheet to Roy/re-sign G.hill? We still desperately need depth on the wings and in our frontcourt.

    On the positive side however, AREA 55 LIVES ON!!
