Turner was set to become a free agent following the season. The Pacers were able to give him the additional $17 million in a renegotiation because the team was that far under the salary cap.
The 26-year-old center is averaging career-highs in points (17.5), rebounds (7.9), field goal percentage (54.4%) and three-point shooting (39.1%). He is a part of the young core in Indiana alongside third-year point guard Tyrese Haliburton and rookie guard Bennedict Mathurin.
