6:10pm: The Pacers confirmed the move on Twitter.
The 6’8″ forward signed with Indiana in July after going undrafted out of Louisiana-Lafayette. He was named the Sun Belt’s Defensive Player of the Year, averaging 2.7 blocks per game as a senior.
Gant may end up with the Pacers’ G League affiliate in Fort Wayne, where he can earn a bonus of up to $50K if he remains on the roster for 60 days. There was never a clear path to a roster spot with the Pacers, who already have 15 players with guaranteed contracts and both two-way slots already filled.
