AP Source: Pacers agree with Jefferson on 3-year, $30M deal

Larry Bird has been trying to mold the Indiana Pacers into a faster, sleeker unit under new coach Nate McMillan.

He also knows the value of having a reliable offensive threat in the post to get buckets when the game inevitably slows down, and that's where Al Jefferson comes in.

The Pacers agreed to terms with Jefferson on a three-year deal worth $30 million, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract cannot be signed until July 7.
