Pacer Cap Situation - August 13th Update

Other than the Pacers making Donald Sloan’s contract guaranteed, there’s really not much to report. Still, it’s good to lock in the numbers, now that the Pacers have a Disabled Player Exception that they probably won’t use – at least fully.

August 13th Sitch

As repeated ad nauseum, ad infinitum, the Pacers will not go into the luxury tax, effectively leaving them with just over $1.6 million in available space under the threshold. The DPE does allow Indy to offer more than the minimum, but not not really that much.

However, even if they had the will to spend the full $5.3 million available to them, it wouldn’t unbreak Paul George’s leg.

As always, Mark Deeks’ Shamsports and Larry Coon’s CBA FAQ were relied on heavily in the creation of this post.
