According to ESPN network expert Adrian Wojnarowski, this agreement includes a salary renegotiation clause for the current season. This will earn Turner an additional $17.1 million.
This amount of money is in addition to his current compensation of $18 million in 2022-2023. The Indianapolis training center will therefore earn an average of $30 million until the 2024-2025 season.
Also according to ESPN, this renegotiation is the largest in NBA history.
A first-round pick of the Pacers in 2015, Turner is in his eighth campaign in Indiana.
This season, the 26-year-old averaged 17.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.
