NBA.com reports that it looks like the 25-year-old is planning to possibly take his talents to another team as a restricted free agent this summer rather than trying to get the Pacers to sign him to a long-term extension.
After all, teams are always seemingly desperate for a talented big man.
"I'm not saying 100 percent we wouldn't do [an extension], but I'd say it's likely," his agent, David Falk said, according to the site. "He likes Indiana, it's a great place, it's worked out well. But it's my opinion that generally, these things are hard to do. If I was an owner I wouldn't do one unless I got a discount. … I think more than anything else, the reason guys do extensions, in my opinion, is when you have a client who is insecure that he's going to get paid. … Centers don't grow on trees. If the guy has the confidence to wait, he's probably better off waiting."
