As the Indianapolis club officially announced, Myles Turner and the Indiana Pacers signed a multi-year contract extension.
The deal is worth 60 million dollars, and it’s for two extra years (through 2024-25), as the Athletic and ESPN reported first.
“I have such a strong belief in this organization and in this city…this is a huge factor in my decision. I truly believe that we can accomplish something here. We have a team on the up-and-up,” Turner said at the press conference, “I’m still here where I started, and that’s very special to me.”
Turner, originally selected by the Pacers with the 11th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, has appeared in 473 career regular-season games, posting averages of 13.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in 28.8 minutes per game.
He is currently 4th all-time in Pacers history in blocked shots (1,086) and is second all-time in blocked shots per game (2.3).
