NBA rumors: Rick Carlisle says getting TJ McConnell, Doug McDermott re-signed a priority

More on Doug McDermott Free Agency

J. Michael Falgoust: McDermott will be a free agent this offseason: "I want to be a Pacer. It's been a great 3 years. It's been a great place to call home. I hope I can continue that."
McDermott should receive votes for Sixth Man of the Year after averaging career highs in points (13.6), field goal percentage (53.2%), true shooting percentage (63.2%), rebounds (3.4) and offensive rating (110.5). He also ranks No. 6 among all small forwards in offensive real plus-minus. Since the All-Star break, the forward has shot 56.1% from the field and 41.5% from 3-point range. McDermott has outplayed his $7.3 million contract this season by close to $5 million according to ProFitX and at the very minimum will see offers that start at the $9.5 million midlevel exception.
Scott Agness: Doug McDermott has agreed to sign a three-year deal with the #Pacers, his agency confirms. He's a 40.3% 3-point shooter who has averaged 7.9ppg in four NBA seasons.
Adrian Wojnarowski: McDermott deal is fully guaranteed, per sources.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Barton has been a strong focus for the Pacers, who would pivot and search for perimeter free agent help elsewhere. Doug McDermott and Joe Harris are potential Pacers targets, league sources tell ESPN.
In the land of second chances, the Mavericks have made it clear they are in a forgiving mood, reversing field to become major threats for free-agent-to-be DeAndre Jordan. Management extended a qualifying offer to Doug McDermott on Tuesday, but then took it off the table when news broke about the Los Angeles Clippers trading for center Marcin Gortat from Washington. An NBA source said that the Mavericks need the roughly $10-million salary-cap hold that McDermott would have required if he had OK'd the qualifying offer and become a restricted free agent.
Zach Lowe: In a quick turnaround, the Mavericks have withdrawn their qualifying offer to Doug McDermott, league sources say. They still have interest in retaining him, but this makes it easier to clear his ~$10M cap hold. Also makes him an unrestricted free agent, broadening his market.
Eddie Sefko: The Mavericks have extended offer sheets to Yogi Ferrell, Doug McDermott and Salah Mejri, making all of them restricted free agents on July 1. Deadline for each is Friday.
