LAS VEGAS (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Indiana Pacers have agreed to terms with free agent guard Rodney Stuckey on a one-year deal to help replace the departed Lance Stephenson.
Stuckey and the Pacers came to the agreement on Wednesday, one day after the Charlotte Hornets swooped in to land Stephenson. Terms of the deal, which was first reported by USA Today, were not immediately available. The person requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.
Stuckey averaged 13.9 points last season, his seventh season with the Detroit Pistons.
With Stephenson gone, Indiana was in desperate need for some offensive help. The Pacers also brought in veteran C.J. Miles to add some shooting earlier this month.
