Due to being selected as a part of the All-NBA Team (3rd team), Indiana Pacers G Paul George will receive a $7 million bonus.

Jeff Zillgitt explained the "new bonus structure" in 2012 

"It is officially called the Fifth Year 30 Percent Max Rule, and Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose qualified for it because he was named NBA MVP while still on his rookie scale contract, and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant qualified because he was All-NBA first team in 2009-10 and 2010-11, his third and fourth NBA seasons."
