Victor Oladipo has one year remaining on his deal after this season. Whether or not the Indiana Pacers will be able to retain him remains to be seen, and if early talks are any indication, that may end up being a problem for the club.
According to Ian Begley of SNY, the Pacers and Oladipo held brief contract extension talks before the 2019-20 campaign began, with Indiana offering the shooting guard a four-year, $80 million deal.
Not surprisingly, discussions did not go any further from there. Oladipo’s current contract is four years, $84 million, so he definitely thinks he’s worth more than that after making two All-Star games, even despite his devastating knee injury.
The good news for Indy is that it will be able to exceed the cap to keep Oladipo, but considering that the Pacers are also paying Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon significant money, that might be difficult.
