After playing his college ball with the Hoosiers for the last two years, Nick Zeisloft will remain in Indiana this fall. According to RealGM’s NBA transactions log, the Pacers have signed the undrafted free agent guard. While terms of the deal aren’t known, it figures to be a one-year, minimum-salary “summer contract,” which won’t count against Indiana’s cap unless Zeisloft makes the team.
After starting his college career at Illinois State, Zeisloft made the move to Indiana for the 2014/15 season. In his two years with the Hoosiers, he averaged just 6.6 PG, but shot an impressive 43.2% from beyond the arc. Over the course of his four-year college career, Zeisloft was a designated sharpshooter for his two teams, making 216 overall three-pointers and just 43 two-point shots.
The Pacers, who already had 15 guaranteed contracts on their books, recently agreed to a deal with Kevin Seraphin that also looks to be guaranteed for 2016/17. With Julyan Stone and Alex Poythress also in the mix as camp invitees, the odds that Zeisloft earns a 15-man roster spot are extremely slim. Still, assuming the Pacers like what they see this fall, they may intend to have the 23-year-old join the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, their D-League affiliate.
