Pascal Siakam, the recently acquired forward of the Indiana Pacers, is displaying a willingness to engage in contract extension discussions with the team this summer. Initially hesitant to commit verbally to any acquiring team, Siakam’s stance appears to have evolved since joining the Pacers.

NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported on ESPN’s NBA Today that the Cameroonian forward, currently on an expiring contract, is “eager to talk about an extension this summer with Indiana.”

Wojnarowski emphasized that Siakam is among the players intrigued by the prospect of playing alongside the talented guard Tyrese Haliburton.

According to Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, Siakam and the Pacers are on track to finalize a longterm deal, ensuring the forward’s services for the foreseeable future. Haynes remarked, “All signs point to Pascal, Indiana getting a longterm deal,” confirming the positive trajectory of the ongoing discussions.

Siakam made his Pacers debut in the loss against the Trail Blazers last night, scoring 21 points and grabbing six rebonds in 34 minutes of play.
