The Indiana Pacers decided to keep their under-the-goal power.
According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnalowski, Indiana has signed a contract extension with Miles Turner (center-forward, 211cm, 113kg).
Indiana gave Turner a two-year, $60 million contract. Of that, $17.1 million will be added to his salary this season, and the remaining roughly $43 million will be paid out over the next two seasons. In other words, this season’s annual salary was added to the previous $18 million to receive an annual salary of $35 million.
Reporter Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that as a result of the contract extension, Turner will receive a salary of $20.9 million for the 2023-2024 season and $19.9 million for the 2024-2025 season. In fact, it should be considered a three-year contract, and the contract for the next two seasons is worth $58 million over two years. With this extension, Turner will remain as Indiana’s franchisor.
Having played for Indiana ever since advancing to the NBA, he has been consistently considered a candidate to be traded in recent years. Indiana also tinkered with Turner as a potential trade card. Moreover, even though Domantas Sabonis (Sacramento) was traded last season, Turner was considered a trade candidate until the beginning of this season. But Indiana decided to stick with him.
Turner’s performance this season is definitely outstanding. He has played 42 games so far, playing 30 minutes per game and recording 17.5 points (.544 .391 .762), 7.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 2.4 blocks. To the extent that he is having his best season since his debut. He is posting the most points average and rebound average. This time, he was reborn as the owner of Indiana’s goal. 먹튀검증
Indiana also has a good performance this season, and the combination with Tyrese Halliburton, who was brought in last season, is not bad, so it is worth seeing that he decided to stick with Turner. Indiana, which is tidying up the squad through reorganization, is not too late to reconsider as a trade card later through this season and next season. This is because the salary was lowered later through the extension of the contract. Trade is possible this season as well.
He entered the NBA through the 2015 draft. He was called up by Indiana with an 11th pick in the first round. He is currently the longest-serving player on the Indiana squad. He has been playing for Indiana for 8 seasons including this season. After the 2016-2017 season, the second year, there was a decrease in average score, but this season, he was reborn as a franchise star by clearly changing the flow.
