A new deal designed to keep the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse through at least 2013 calls for Indianapolis to spend at least $33.5 million to help the team's owners operate the arena and pay for improvements to the franchise's home.





If the team leaves the city after the 2012-2013 season, the Pacers must pay back at least $30 million of the money. But the deal, which capped negotiations that began two years ago, calls for that amount to decline for each season they remain in Indianapolis. If the Pacers stay through the 2019-2020 season, they won't have to repay any money.

**** Indiana move the team back to Seattle and name the team the super sonics. Seattle needs their team back as soon as possible

This would be terrible. Indiana has way to much basketball history. If anything they should stay in Indiana and move the hornets or something.

That's ridiculous. So by fixing the idiotic move of the Sonics we cause another idiotic move another franchise? That makes sense :rolleyes:

Good to see a franchise actually stay and not decide to move

Good to hear, it's always a shame to see a city lose a team.
