Update: West has agreed to a three-year, $36 million contract to return to the Pacers, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Recommendation: During his second season with Indiana, West was a force in the post, tallying 17.1 points (on 49.8 percent shooting), 7.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 blocks in 33.4 minutes per contest. He was especially crisp during the Pacers march to the Eastern Conference finals, racking up six double-doubles in the final 11 outings of their 19-game playoff run. While he'll hold down the fort at power forward once again, it remains to be seen if Tyler Hansbrough will be around to alleviate his workload as West enters his age-33 season.
