The Indiana Pacers are finalizing a deal to re-sign power forward David West to a three-year contract valued at more than $36 million with a player option in the third year, sources told ESPN.com.
The Pacers made keeping West their top offseason priority and quickly worked out a deal that will give the 32-year-old a raise over the $10 million he made in each of the past two seasons. West averaged 17.1 points and 7.7 rebounds and led the Pacers to the Eastern Conference finals last season.
After struggling to get a long-term deal two years ago coming off a major knee injury, West has proven to be durable in his first two seasons with the Pacers, missing just nine games.
Yahoo! Sports first reported West and the Pacers had come to an agreement.
The Pacers also reached an agreement with point guard C.J. Watson this week to bolster their bench. They are also expected to look to sign young star Paul George to a contract extension before the start of next season.
