Little Progress Made In Contract Extension Talks Between Pacers, Victor Oladipo

May 2, 2020 12:40 PM

Discussions of a contract extension between the Indiana Pacers and Victor Oladipo have slowed, league sources told Ian Begley of SNY.

The two sides discussed a four-year, $80 million extension at one point, though there has been little development since.

Several opposition teams are keeping their eye on the situation.

The Pacers committed $58 million in 2021-22 salary to Myles Turner, Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon.

SNY added that several teams inquired about potential deals for Turner following last season's draft, but came away with the impression that it would take a big offer to pry Turner away from the Pacers.

Knicks, Rockets, Pacers Expressed Reservations About Playing Games Without Fans

Mar 12, 2020 10:28 AM

The New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers were the three teams to express reservations on eliminating fans from games without receiving a formal government mandate to do so during a conference call of the NBA Board of Governors on Wednesday.

Several teams were willing to put games on hiatus, but the rest wanted to move toward eliminating fans from arenas in order to continue playing games. 

The Rockets were more amenable to pausing the season for three to four weeks and were less enthusiastic about the idea of playing games in the short-term without fans in attendance. 

The NBA decided to suspend the season indefinitely after Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday evening.
