Nigerian-born basketballer Obi Toppin agrees to $60M deal to stay with Indiana Pacers until 2028

Indiana Pacers forward Obi Toppin has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $60 million contract extension, securing his place with the team until 2028. The deal was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Toppin, a restricted free agent, has had a breakout season with the Pacers, becoming a valuable contributor off the bench for the Eastern Conference finalists. Averaging 10.3 points per game and shooting an impressive 57.3% from the field in 21.1 minutes per game, Toppin has proven his worth as a key play-finisher.

His standout performance includes 101 dunks and a career-best 40.3% shooting from three-point range. These achievements highlight his versatility and ability to impact the game on multiple fronts.

The Pacers acquired Toppin from the New York Knicks last summer in exchange for two second-round picks. Toppin, who was drafted eighth overall by the Knicks in the 2020 NBA Draft, has found a new home in Indiana, where he continues to thrive and develop his game.

With this new deal, Toppin is set to remain a crucial part of the Pacers’ roster, bringing his energy and athleticism to the team for the foreseeable future.
