Based off of my calculations......ignoring that Granger will be gone....I think that it would be difficutl for the Pacers to offer him the full MLE without going over the LT ( we are at $52 mil going into next season without adding in whatever PG24 is earning with a LT at $75.7 mil ).
IMHO, any Team under the LT can offer him the full MLE.....so the Pacers have to be able to make an offer that is more than that to make a competitive offer...probably something around $5.5 to 6+ mil a year. Everything depends on how much PG24 starting 2014-2015 salary will start at. If it starts at $15 mil or less...I think we are okay. But if it's more than that....then we are eating in the amount of $$$ that the Pacers can offer Lance before going over the LT ( which we know the Simons won't do ).
