INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Domantas Sabonis is going to be sticking around Indiana, the team said Monday night.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that the Indiana Pacers have signed Sabonis to a four-year, $77 million guaranteed extension.

The team did not release terms of the deal, calling it only a multiyear contract extension.

“I’m very excited to remain with the Pacers, this is where I wanted to be,” Sabonis said in a news release from the team. “I appreciate the organization showing their confidence in me; and I’m ready to be part of what’s going to be a great year for our team.”

Sabonis is entering his fourth year in the league. He joined the Pacers in 2017 in the trade that also sent Victor Oladipo to the Pacers.
