The Indiana Pacers are primed for a breakout season. The front office on the other hand, made sure that Paul George isn’t the only thing Pacer fans will see on the court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers recently brokered a deal with Indiana Economic Development Corp., to provide advertising space on the court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the home of the Pacers.
