Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Indiana Pacers made it official on Monday, signing guard Rodney Stuckey to an undisclosed contract.
According to a report in the Indianapolis Star last week, the deal is for one year.
"Rodney is a very talented player who can create and score in a variety of ways," said Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird. "We're very happy to get a player with his experience and who has made it very clear of his desire to win."
The 28-year-old Stuckey averaged 13.9 points per game last season with the Pistons. He holds career averages of 13.4 points and 3.9 assists over seven seasons -- all with Detroit.
Stuckey will try to make up for the loss of Lance Stephenson, who left Indiana to join the Charlotte Hornets.
