Ty Lawson to Sign With Indiana Pacers
Details are unknown, but the free agent is expected to sign the contract with Indiana this weekend, after the team completes a buyout of forward Chase Budinger.
The report says Lawson will likely play a backup role to guard George Hill.
After finishing third in the NBA in assists last season with 9.6 per game while playing with the Denver Nuggets, he was busted on a pair of DUI arrests and struggled this season, averaging just 3.4 assists -- the lowest total since his rookie season in 2009-10.
In his seven-year career, Lawson has averaged 13.3 points and 6.2 assists.
