$40 million. That's what it's going to cost to keep Stephenson. The Pacers advantage is they can offer him 5 years and 7.5% raises, compared to 4 and 4.5% for other teams. I think in another thread someone said that a starting salary of $7 million would accomplish that.
As for the all-star team, I wouldn't rule out Stephenson making it. The East is such a trainwreck that you can argue 4 Pacers (George, Hibbert, West, and Stephenson) and 3 Heat (LeBron, Wade, and Bosh) could be on it. Vogel's an absolute lock to coach.
