    As each game approaches, I just expect a triple double, 20+ points, etc. from Lance. That's not realistic I know. But I think he will remain really productive as long as he brings energy.

    It will be more than that.

    I'm afraid of that. Lance leads this team in assists...well ahead of all players. He is 2nd on the team in rebounds, points and FG%...amazingly ahead of David West. You have to start looking at DWest money unfortunately. He's already producing more than George Hill by some distance.

    The problem is that Lance is an UFA and some team will throw a ridiculous about of $$$ at him

    The smartest thing Bird can do is offer Lance something now and avoid some other team throwing $ at him (if we're allowed)
    "So, which one of you guys is going to come in second?" - Larry Bird before the 3 point contest. He won.

    That would be dumb for Lance. Let the market dictate his pay. I can see him being signed to an Asik deal. 5/5/15 with the caphold at 8million per season.

    Lucky for us, Lance isn't the sharpest tool in the she'd (jk)

    Teams will be taking a HUGE risk if they offer Lance more than $9mil per.

    Stephenson can't sign a deal like that. The only players eligible are players who have played less than two years who become free agents and weren't first round draft picks.

    It has been a pleasure to watch his success, and the odd spontaneous things like making faces at Howard, or the odd hand slap follow through as he runs under the basket after the assist. He brings positive energy and edge, but I never worry that he will go into the stands, for example, thanks to the staff and particularly to Clark K. Presuming there are no arguments regarding his talent, I wonder whether he would be as good outside of this group. The thought of him playing with another team is not pleasant, but is it reasonable to believe that he would be as effective as he is now with any other team?

    I think it would be a World B. Free kind of thing, who was an exciting 6th man for the championship contending Celtics before moving on to a scrub team and leading the league in scoring.

    With another team, Lance could explode in terms of stats and all-star success. But he wouldn't come nearly as close to getting a ring as he would here.

    His baggage and lack of consistency have kept him cheap. Both of those things are fading. If he plays smart basketball most of the time...for the remainder of this season...teams will begin to overlook his flash and baggage because they will see way too much substance. It's all in Lance's hands. He doesn't even need to play as well as he has the last 2 games to command 8 or 9M. If he continues this level of play he may very well crack 10M. If Arenas can make double that...

    I can't see Lance getting anymore than what Tyreke Evans got (4 years 44 million), and Lance should get about 2-3 mil per year less than that, so I see Lance getting somewhere between 8-9 mill per

    Arenas didn't get his franchise crippling deal until his 3rd contract. And plenty of AWESOME seasons, people forget how good dude that was. The first deal he signed with Washington was great value for them.

    It was also under a less restrictive CBA.

    I'm thinking that if we think 7 then the price will be 9+. Guys always sign for more than we expect.

    I haven't looked at it, but I'm going to guess it was me that said that. ****in' Nostradamus over here.

    Edit: Just looked. Yep, it was me.

    Lance isn't going anywhere. He is Bird's guy. Besides Brad Miller, Indiana doesn't lose their star players.
