I’d like to start this discussion off by looking at some key contracts from the last 3 years not signed by your Indiana Pacers. These all fall after the cap explosion and resulting contract disaster many teams faced after signing ill advised long term deals; meaning these were all signed after half of the NBA compromised their cap flexibility and asset pool.
Tobias Harris: 5 years, $180 million
Harrison Barnes: 4 years, $85 million
Bojan Bogdanovic: 4 years, $73 million
Rudy Gay: 2 years, $32 million
Trevor Ariza: 2 years, $25 million
Marcus Morris: 1 year, $15 million
Trevor Ariza: 1 year, $15 million
Rudy Gay: 1 year, $10.
