According to multiple published reports, the Indiana Pacers are in the process of inking free agent guard Rodney Stuckey on a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum. Per the Detroit News:

After seven years and six coaches, Rodney Stuckey has moved on from the Pistons, signing with the Indiana Pacers.

 

Signing Stuckey could turn out to be a bargain for the Pacers after free agent Lance Stephenson signed with the Charlotte Hornets early Wednesday morning.

 

Stuckey can play both guard positions, and if he performs well for a team that made the Eastern Conference finals two years in a row, he can set himself up for a big payday next summer. He averaged 13.9 points off the bench for the Pistons this season, his first year since his rookie season in which he was a consistent reserve.
