INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indiana Pacers and forward Domantas Sabonis have agreed to a four-year contract extension, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski

Per Woj, the extension is worth $77 million, and Sabonis has a chance to make up to $85 million through bonuses.

Sabonis is about to enter his fourth season in the NBA and his third with the Indiana Pacers. The 23-year-old Gonzaga product set career-highs last season by averaging over 14 points and 9 rebounds per game.

“I’m very excited to remain with the Pacers, this is where I wanted to be,” said Sabonis. “I appreciate the organization showing their confidence in me; and I’m ready to be part of what’s going to be a great year for our team.”

“We love the toughness that Domantas brings to our team, and we can’t wait to see him play in his expanded role this year,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard. “He’s had so much growth in his career; and we’re excited for what that means for his future, as well as the future of our team.”
