The Pacers have signed guard Gabe York to their open two-way spot after waiving Trevelin Queen on Wednesday, the team announced in a press release.
Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files was the first to report that Indiana was expected to sign York.
After going undrafted out of Arizona in 2016, York spent time in the G League and made international stops in Germany, Greece, Israel and Italy before joining the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Pacers’ G League affiliate, last season. He signed a two-way contract with Indiana to end 2021/22 and made his NBA debut last April, appearing in two games for a total of 21 minutes.
The 29-year-old signed an Exhibit 10 deal with Indiana during preseason to get a bonus before being waived, and has spent the entire ’22/23 season with the Mad Ants, putting up impressive numbers in both the Showcase Cup and the NBAGL regular season.
In 17 games (31.6 MPG) during the Showcase Cup, he averaged 23.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.4 steals on .452/.382/.818 shooting, and in 27 regular season games (34.6 MPG), he put up 21.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 steals on a .450/.401/.818 slash line.
York’s strong performances led to him earning a spot in last month’s Next Up Game (essentially the NBAGL’s version of the All-Star game). The Pacers’ 17-man roster is now full.
