Nah. Indiana is sitting at $30.4 million in 2014-15, without George signed. Max deal would still have them under the cap. David West will likely be gone by then, anyway. Hibbert's contract is already in the books that season, along with George Hill. They'll be good, regarding total payroll.
Yea the Pacers are in the bottom half as far as cap space, they already have Hibbert long term, same for George Hill, Hansborough im not sure but still not much of a focal point. Lance Stephenson might want ta contract that far exceeds his actual value, Pacers Shouldnt toss him money. And their bench of Mahimi and Young are extrmeely cheap but I doubt they'll get offered high deals. So realistically Paul George can have a near max deal and it won't cripple them at all, and that will not be for a few more years, of course im sure the organization will have talks with him as soon as possible.
Only factor is West, I'd be surprised if he would want a higher deal than his current one, if anything probably want a longer term to end his career. Plus I am wonder how the Granger factor will be handled. So this organization pretty much has its core, it comes own to what kind of moves they can make this offseason.
