Pacers Re-Sign Shayne Whittington

1:59pm: The deal is official, the Pacers announced.

“Shayne has been with us for more than a year and shown us a lot of good things,” said Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird. “He has grown as a player, has improved and we expect him to continue to do so to be a part of what we do. He’s a hard worker with a variety of skills for a big man.”

JULY 27TH, 10:37am: It’ll be a two-year deal with the first season fully guaranteed, Shade tells Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star (Twitter link).

JULY 12TH, 7:56pm: The Pacers and forward Shayne Whittington have agreed to a one-year, guaranteed contract, reports RealGM’s Shams Charania, who spoke with Whittington’s agent, Ron Shade (Twitter link).

Whittington is a restricted free agent. In April, the Pacers assigned Whittington to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League. It was the forward’s second trip to Fort Wayne last season.

Whittington, 24, averaged 2.9 points per game and only appeared in 20 games without making a start.

    Tell me one more time how this guy is going to help get the Pacers back to the playoffs???

    • He’s not? He’s a young developing player. Have you forgot that we signed Monta Ellis, Jordan Hill, drafted Myles Turner and Joe Young and are getting a fully healthy Paul George back? Not ever move you make has to be the best one. We’re developing this guy. It’s not that hard to fathom.
