As we all know, the Pacers have picked up Evan Turner. He is a Restricted Free Agent this summer. If the Pacers do nothing, he becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent. If the Pacers offer him the required (according to his contract) $8.7 million they have the right to match any offer that another team may give him.
Here is my question. If the Pacers make the $8.7 million offer to Turner, can he take it and play next season with the Pacers and then become a UFA?
