INDIANAPOLIS — The Pacers and guard Malcolm Brogdon have agreed to a two-year, $45 million contract extension, keeping him in Indiana through 2025.
Brogdon’s agent Austin Brown of CAA Sports told ESPN the deal will guarantee his client $89.3 million and will begin following the 2022-2023 season.
“He has become one of our undisputed leaders – continually supporting his teammates and setting them up for success – while also demonstrating the drive, dedication, and work ethic necessary to establish himself as one of the premier guards in the NBA,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations in a team release.
The Pacers acquired Brogdon in a trade with Milwaukee in 2019. He was Indiana’s leading scorer last season at 21.2 points per game, while also averaging 5.9 assists and 5.3 rebounds.
He’s averaged 15.1 ppg, 4.7 apg and 4.1 rpg in 297 career games in five seasons. He was the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year and became only the eighth player in league history to have a 50/40/90 season in 2018-19 when he shot 50.5% from the field, 42.6% from three-point range and 92.8% from the free-throw line.
