Outside of Lebron James, Chris Bosh, and Wade being the biggest free agenst next summer. Paul George was the guy. I'm thankful the Pacers picked him up. That allows them to stay in the hunt for years to come. I do worry a bit that he may lose his luster since he got the big extension.
The maximum extension is expected to be signed this week, according to the website.
George, the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2012-13, saw his scoring average rise to 19.2 points a game during the 2012-13 postseason, up from 17.4 in the regular season. He helped lead the Pacers to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, where they lost to the eventual champion Miami Heat.
George told the Indianapolis Star last week that he would sign a long-term deal with the Pacers before the start of the season.
"There will be a deal signed and sealed on the table before the season," he told the newspaper. "We're on the same page."
