Paul George Close to Extension with Pacers

NBA via Indiana Pacers(NEW YORK) -- The Indiana Pacers and All-Star forward Paul George are close to a new deal, according to Yahoo! Sports.

League sources told Yahoo! Sports that George is close to signing a five-year extension worth more than $90 million.

"There will be a deal signed and sealed on the table before the season," George told the Indianapolis Star. "We're on the same page."

George averaged 19.2 points a game during the 2012-13 postseason before the Pacers fell to the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

"We are working on it now," Pacers president Larry Bird told the paper earlier this week. "We've got a way to set up where we definitely think we can get something done, but it's going to have to work for both parties."
