    Is this with the Rose rule assumed? I sure hope so. If he doesn't make all 3rd team it would 2-3 million less right?

    John Wall's was $78 million. If George got the Rose rule, which it looks like he did, then it'd be $94.5 million.

    So this has to be assuming that he makes all NBA 3rd team etc then. Good to know. I would rather see his development lead to another All NBA selection then worry about shedding 2-3 million of salary a year.

    I expected it and I'm happy about it.

    But wow, that's a lot of money.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Go do it

    5 years 90 million... 18 million a year average... Gilbert Arenas 6 years - 111 million...18.5 million average...I predict PG whips out a pistol on Donald Sloan

    Was hoping for less, but figured he'd get the max.

    I'm happy to know he will be a Pacer throughout the prime of his career (not that I ever had any doubt)

    Here's to hoping he and Roy can continue to keep this team towards the top in the league for the foreseeable future.

    So this is with the rose rule? If he doesn't make the all nba team then it goes down? Or how does this work.

    Not to mention that every starter makes between 8 and 18 million dollars.

    well, not quite yet. PG won't be getting a flat rate, the deal won't start at 18+.

    No way Lance would sign a deal right now and neither would the Pacers. His market value could be anywhere from 2 mill a year to 8 mill a year. They will wait and see.
