Pacers Waive Center Kevin Seraphin

The Pacers have waived center Kevin Seraphin, Shams Charania of The Vertical tweets. Seraphin’s salary of $1,974,159 for next season would have been guaranteed if he remained on the roster Tuesday.

Indiana has three other centers – Myles Turner, Al Jefferson and second-round pick Ike Anigbogu – on the roster. The Pacers have 13 players under guaranteed contracts.

Seraphin appeared in 49 games with the Pacers last season, including three starts, and averaged 4.7 PPG and 2.9 RPG in 11.4 MPG. He also played in four postseason games, averaging 7.3 PPG and 3.5 RPG.

Seraphin, 27, played his first five seasons with the Wizards and also toiled for the Knicks for a season before joining the Pacers last summer.

There’s a good chance he will wind up playing in Europe next season. FC Barcelona is reportedly interested in signing him. Seraphin is currently in France, where he’s training for the EuroBasket tournament with his national team.

    Cutting vets is a solid move when you’re tanking. Pacers will be trash in 2018, no doubt

      You forgot they’re in the East. Turner is a really good big & Victor is a good player

    The Pacers will be a top 5 seed in the East… They are changing the culture in the locker room, by bringing in players who will play hard night-in night-out… Paul George is an elite talent, but he took too many possessions and nights off. Oladipo will also take a step up as the new Alpha…no he’s not Westbrook, but he can create his own shot and defend
