Key Offseason Decisions

  • The only roster decision is to keep T.J. McConnell for $3.5M or waive him for a savings of $2.5M. Everyone else is fully guaranteed without any options.
  • The next decision is about how much of a barrier the luxury tax will be. The Pacers are closer than they usually are. If they re-sign Justin Holiday, Indiana will be pressed up against the tax.

Projected Team Salary


Indiana’s immediate roster decisions are simple. They’ll probably guarantee T.J. McConnell because his role is worth a minimum of $3.5M. After that, it’s all about the luxury tax. The Pacers are only $10.3M under the tax. And that’s before re-signing Justin Holiday. Of course, if the team decides it’s time to swing a big trade, that could free up room under the tax.

-$29,581,641 (9th out of 30). $10,310,717 under the Luxury Tax.
