Al Jefferson has agreed in principle to a three-year, $30 million contract with the Pacers.
The third year of the deal might not be guaranteed but if the Pacers weren’t about that Ian Mahinmi life then Big Al is a suitable replacement. Of course, the Pacers need to view him as a 20 mpg guy that plays in slow lineups, preferably off the bench. Myles Turner is going to learn some incredible posts moves, presuming Jefferson wants to teach the rookie how to limit his minutes in Year 1. Mahinmi will not be back with the Pacers according to beat writer Nate Taylor.
