Pacers forward David West has reached a contract extension agreement that will be $36 million over three years, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski:

Keeping West had been the major priority of the Pacers' offseason, and his strong desire to return to the organization made negotiations go smoothly. West hasn't seriously considered another team.

After signing with the Pacers two years ago, he made an immense impact on the floor and in the locker room as Indiana pushed the Miami Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals this season.

West joined the Pacers in 2011 on a two-year, $20 million deal after playing eight seasons in New Orleans. The 32-year-old averaged 17.1 points and 7.7 rebounds in 33.4 minutes per game with the Pacers last season. He also contributed 15.9 points and 7.6 rebounds during the team's playoff run and is well-respected with the front office, coaching staff and among his fellow players.

The deal won't be made official until the league's moratorium is lifted on July 10.
