    Fantastic news.

    Just as long as they can keep Lance, then it's all good.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    Good, I would assume this means they are close to an agreement.

    Really interested in seeing the details.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    What does this deal have anything to do with Lance?
    Is it bad if they sign PG to a deal before the season and not Lance?
    Is it kinda good if they only sign PG?

    Am I missing something here?

    My guess is he'll be signing the same type of 5-year $80 million deal that John Wall got at the very least.

    This is still good news! I think PGs is a confidence type player and this is a huge vote of confidence from the Pacers franchise.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Hopefully that confidence doesn't back-fire and that contract doesn't become a load hanging over his head if he hits a bad stretch (sorta like another Pacer recently, before he turned it around). I doubt it will, he's shown extreme mental toughness. I really think in the annals of PG's career that Golden State goose egg to Chicago Bulls 34 point fire storm is going to get at least a full chapter.

    If he signs his deal now, is he still eligible for the Derrick Rose Rule assuming he makes another All-NBA team?

    Yes. How that will be treated will be written into the contract. My guess is (and always has been) that this is the remaining negotiating point, with the Pacers trying to keep it at or as close to the 25% number as possible, and PG & his agent pulling the other way. It's not insignificant, but it's not like they're oceans apart, either.

    If it keeps him here and happy, max him out. Give him every penny he asks for.

    My suspicion is that he'll take a contract around the figures that Roy got, or maybe a little higher. But he's still worth the money that a max contract pays.

    Best chance the Pacers have ever had at a legit superstar, which like it or not brings in notoriety and resulting revenue. Good investment regardless of the terms.

    I'll gladly take a replication of Hibbert's last season for PG next year. Roy played monster ball after the all-star game and during the playoffs. Winning time.

    I think we all know getting the max is a given it's just which max. I don't see Bird just giving in to the 30% deal otherwise he'd just wait and match next year, it just doesn't seem like Bird's way. I'm really hopeful to get this done and I'm glad it's Bird working the deal.

    The clock is ticking for the Pacers to prevent Paul George from restricted free agency. But he says not to worry.
    Via the Indianapolis Star, George says he will sign an extension with the Pacers before the 2013-14 season starts.
    “[A long-term contract] is going to get done,” George told the Indianapolis Star. “There will be a deal signed and sealed on the table before the season. We're [George and Pacers management] on the same page.”
    That's a lot of confidence in a deal getting done, but it's hard to imagine George, a blossoming superstar, not being locked up. He's likely not signing for anything less than a max, considering he would assuredly get that in restricted free agency, though. He's emerged as one of the most promising young players in the league, a defensive stopper on the wing with slashing, shooting and finishing ability.
    Financially, the Pacers are in a decent spot with about $52 million committed for 2014-15, which would be when an extension for George kicks in. Roy Hibbert signed a max level deal in restricted free agency last summer which starts this season, but after that only have big deals in David West and George Hill to worry about.
    An extension for George means Danny Granger's days in Indiana are almost guaranteed to be numbered, as he's set to make $14 million this season on an expiring deal.
    Asked recently about George's future, Pacers president Larry Bird said it's a priority.
    “We are working on it now,” Bird said, via the Star. “We've got a way set up where we definitely think we can get something done, but it's going to have to work for both parties.”
    George, 23, averaged 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists last season in 79 games

    I don't like his contract being based on whether he makes the all star team or all nba or whatever. It is against team thinking to incent someone based on an individual stat or reward. I guess it's an NBA rule, not the Pacers front office, behind it, so there's nothing we can do about it. But I still don't like it. Paul is an unselfish player, and this type of motivation potentially undermines that great quality and the current Pacers squad's team-mindedness.
