From what I hear the Pacers want him to be a rotation player, with a chance to take over as the starter at point guard, while the 76ers are offering him the starting position, with a guarantee that he starts the whole season.
The Pacers are offering more money though, but with a big salary cut from what he is being offered by big European clubs. However, it is still a good salary.
The 76ers are offering less money, but hoping he takes the offer, because he would be guaranteed to be the team's starting point guard.
If Spanoulis wants to come back to the NBA he can this next season. None of this can happen until July 11th, when he officially becomes a free agent.
But the word is big that after the Euroleague Final Four, he was given the offers by both NBA teams, and that he is still thinking about.
But since he has 3 young kids, and a newborn baby, it might not be possible.
Okay, I don't know about your "sources", but theoretically this is now possible for the Sixers. They just traded Jrue, but drafted Michael Carter Williams, a guard with a high upside. The Sixers have done very well with their moves and I am very happy because they will tank for the 2013-2014 season and get ready to harvest the 2014 draft with lots to choose from.
If Span pans out in the NBA, then better, if he doesn't, not so bad either.
