Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo has indicated that he’s “fully committed” to the team and the coming season, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. The All-Star guard had reportedly been on the outs with the franchise after a year of turmoil which included an injury that prevented him from all but 19 of the team’s 73 games and the subsequent firing of Head Coach Nate McMillan.
Oladipo’s contract will pay him $21 million this season, after which he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Oladipo averaged 23.4 points and 10.2 rebounds per game while shooting 46.6%...oops, nope! Excuse us. That was 2014-15 LaMarcus Aldridge.
Oladipo averaged 14.5 points and 3.9 assists per game on 39.4% shooting from the field, 31.7% from the arc last year in limited duty for the Pacers. He is a career 44% shooter, 35% from the arc, averaging 17.3 points per game over seven seasons with two NBA All-Star appearances to his name.
