The Indiana Pacers have signed star Guard/Forward Paul George to a contract extension.

Contract terms won‘t be finalized till the contract extension begins, but George is expected to receive about $80 million. Pacers President Larry Bird says George will “do the things necessary to be the face of the franchise.”

George says it was a “no-brainer” to stay with the Pacers and credited the fans as a big reason he wanted to remain a Pacer.

George was named to the 3rd All NBA team last season, 2nd All Defensive Team, as well as being named Most Improved Player.
