The Myles Turner experience is an interesting one. His highs are really high and his lows are really low. However, there is no denying that Turner has the potential to be one of the best big men in the sport. Range, size, speed, and an edge perfectly describe Myles Turner. The Indiana Pacers had no interest in letting that guy walk out the door. The two sides came together on a contract extension worth $72 million over 4 years.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN was the first to report the news:

Turner, 22, was drafted with the 11th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Turner ranked third in the NBA in blocks a year ago. He also posted 12.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per contest in 65 games. Certain incentives can post his new contract to $20 million per year. That would put his contract on par with Clint Capela’s new deal with the Rockets.

“I’d like to thank the Simon family and the Pacers organization for giving me this opportunity,” said Myles Turner. “It took a lot of hard work to get here and I didn’t do it on my own; I’d like to thank my family, as well as my teammates, past and present, and the coaching staff for helping me get to this point. I’m excited to build here in Indiana and I’m looking forward to the future.”

“Myles has been great here, not only on the court; but he represents this organization unbelievably off the court as well,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard. “His hard work and dedication to both his game and to our franchise exemplify what it means to be a Pacer. We’re thrilled to have him here long term.”

That’s Some Cheese – Episode 23 – 5.31.18

Tuner became the fourth player from the 2015 NBA Draft to agree to an extension (Devin Booker, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Justice Winslow).
