Wait What! Indiana Pacers’ star forward Paul George missed out on $210 Million Contract

According to the league’s Designated Player Exception rules, if a player who is approaching free agency on his second contract makes an All-NBA squad or is named MVP or Defensive Player of the Year while playing for the team that drafted him, he is then eligible to sign a max extension.

But because PG didn’t make any of the three All-NBA teams, he failed to meet the requirements for a Pacers five-year extension which would’ve been worth $210 million. That’s $75 million more than what any other team could promise him. This would’ve been the richest contract in league history. Damn!

Last month, the Washington Post reported that media members could help PG-13 earn an additional $75 million by voting him on an All-NBA team. The league’s Designated Player Exception rules that if a player who is approaching free agency on his second contract makes an All-NBA squad or is named MVP or Defensive Player of the Year while playing for the team that drafted him during his rookie deal, he qualifies to sign a max extension above average for the service time accrued.
