The Pacers have officially signed first-round pick Solomon Hill, selected 23rd overall, to a rookie-scale contract, the team announced today through their website. During the July moratorium, first-round picks are permitted to sign contracts with their respective clubs.
The 22-year-old Hill will likely receive a 2013/14 salary worth about $1.25MM, as our Luke Adams outlined in our breakdown of salaries for first-round picks. Hill, who spent three years at Arizona, was a surprise selection by the Pacers at 23. The team also reached a deal with free agent Donald Sloan earlier today.
