Before the game, Turner knew what he wanted to accomplish in playing alongside Jeff Teague and Thaddeus Young, his two new teammates in the projected starting lineup. “I want to get used to playing with Jeff in the pick-and-roll,” said Turner, who missed the first two preseason games recovering from the first concussion of his career. “He’s real elusive out of it and he gets out and makes great plays. Me and Thad, we open the floor for one another. We’re interchangeable at both our positions. It really creates driving opportunities and I feel it’s a good, little dynamic punch.”
From the outside now, what are your thoughts on what they’ve done? Vogel: Well, they’ve got some firepower. There’s no doubt about it. I think Myles Turner is a big, big key on that team. How well he develops in his second year will be a big factor in how far they go, but adding Jeff Teague and having Monta Ellis come back alongside Paul George and Thaddeus Young — they have a chance to be a great running team. Al Jefferson and Aaron Brooks off the bench give them a lot of firepower. So they’re going to be deep, they’re going to be athletic, and they’re going to be a great team.
Teague is eligible to have his contract re-negotiated, much like the Oklahoma City Thunder did with Russell Westbrook and the Houston Rockets did with James Harden. The issue there is that Paul George also becomes re-structure eligible on September 25. The Pacers are sitting on about $6 million in cap space – enough to get George to the current NBA max, but not enough to also sign Teague to a new deal. Unless the Pacers opt to dump a contract and create more room, re-structuring Teague’s deal does not seem to be in the cards, which means a stroll through unrestricted free agency for the point guard and a ton of risk for Indiana.
