Turner Extension Talks

When I was younger, the most upsetting part of any holiday with family was that moment when my parents asked me to start packing up my things and saying goodbye to my family. As a child, I’d cry and beg to stay. As a teenager, I’d propose creative new ways to try and extend the fun I was having, “Can my cousins come to stay the night? Can we go see a movie with them?  Grandma will let us sleep on the floor in the living room if we stay here!”

When Myles Turner is playing the way he’s been playing this year- 16 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game- it’s only natural for our hearts to prompt our heads, asking “Can’t we just stay a little longer?” Luckily for our hearts, the contract extension rumor mill is running alongside the trade mill, although maybe not at the same pace. It was reported earlier this week that the Pacers and Turner were engaged in contract extension talks.

Whether you think these talks are genuine, or a way to drum up competition for Turner trade packages, the extension rumors will definitely pique your interest.
