The Indiana Pacers are entering a crucial season that could have a strong influence on their long-term future. One of the key factors contributing to that is Domantas Sabonis starting at power forward and being eligible for a contract extension.

The Indiana Pacers began last season as one of the few teams in the league to keep their same starting lineup intact from the 2017-18 season. That certainly won't be the case again next season.

The Indiana Pacers and guard Edmond Sumner have agreed to a contract extension, according to reports from Kokomo Tribune columnist Grant Afseth and others.
