HOW TO RE-SIGN LANCE DETAILED EXPLANATION

"According to Shamsports, Indiana has approximately $65.9 million in committed contracts for next season." Then figure in PG's raise which Zach Lowe reports, "The two sides struck an interesting compromise, according to several sources who have seen George’s deal, his salary will settle at 27 percent of the cap level, instead of the full 30 percent. That would set George’s starting salary at about $15.8 million, given the league’s projected cap for next season. That’s about $1.75 million less than George could have earned had he fought for the full 30 percent." With projected tax threshold at 75.7mil., that leaves roughly 7.5mil. left and 11 players under contract(assuming bringing everyone but Danny back, which makes most logical sense). Use this money to sign lance, brings roster to 12, and the MLE to fill both fill 1-2 more players as well as have a small amount in case of injury etc. Remember since pacers have Bird rights to Lance they alone can offer him an extra 5th yr to his contract as well as a 7.5% yearly raises as opposed to the 4.5% others can. Add on his proclaimed and real allegiance to Pacers & Larry Bird, the fact we have a VERY real chance of winning the chip this year, and that the Pacers could structure his contract in a way that his first year of his contract has the lower end of a base salary then increases as well as incentives like player options etc. and you can clearly see the pacers could meet the forecasted 7-9mil. it has been reported he will fetch. One thing to note is you never know what can happen from now till offseason but this is where it stands as of now. I have done extensive research on this and if you believe any of this is flawed I’d be happy to direct you to any number of sources I used.
