Despite the percentages, McDermott isn’t quite on the same level as the leagues most elite three-point snipers. He doesn’t take as many outside shots each game as the top shooters, which lowers his impact as a perimeter threat. Still, though, McDermott is set up for a raise this summer thanks to his successes over the last three seasons. “They’ve given all indication that they want to be back. And we will have those discussions. They played so well that they’re going to have suitors, there’s no doubt,” Pritchard said when discussing McDermott and free agent point guard T.J. McConnell this offseason.
Storyline: TJ McConnell Free Agency
McDermott should get a contract that starts at a salary figure above those numbers, and since he has organizational familiarity and was part of the Pacers team building strategy in recent seasons, he has more value to the Pacers than an external free agent of equal value. Plus, he plays on the wing, an in-demand position in the NBA and a role that the Pacers are lacking. Thus, it’s logical to think that if the Pacers are going to use most of their space under the luxury tax on one player, McDermott is a strong option. “They just do things the right way. They treat us like professionals. It just feels like a family here,” McDermott said of Indiana. “It’s a great place to live. The fans are amazing.”
