From WISHTV, sports reporter Charlie Clifford joins the show to talk with Kevin Bowen who is filling in for DD about what he sees out of this new look Pacers team.  They both were at Bankers Life Fieldhouse as new members of the team were able to be welcomed to Indianapolis.  The two talk about what they believe this team will do with their starting five and what they believe these new guys will add.

Is getting a new contract for Domantas Sabonis a priority for this team?

"Yeah, well let me ask you a question first.  What do you think the underline factor is with Sabonis, because I've had something in my head and that's really why I brought it up to Kevin (Pritchard) and I thought about all summer.   What do you think ultimately this hinges on, because I keep falling back on 'you want to keep Victor Oladipo happy'.  So that in two years, your franchise player, your franchise guy and keep that friendship with Domas.   Obviously, Domas has taken off on the court and especially last season.  He's only 23 years old.  Do you think that plays a factor?"

"Kevin basically said to me that, the first minute he reached out to Sabonis's agent.  He told him that he was going to be a priority, let me take care of these outside deals first.  Obviously with seven free agents, you gotta help yourself first in the short-term.  But he made it clear to everyone including Domas that an extension is now the goal.  For me, that was the first I had heard of that from Kevin."
