Here are Sunday’s assignments and recalls from around the NBA:

Pacers Guarantee Alize Johnson’s Contract

The Pacers have guaranteed the contract of forward Alize Johnson for the 2019/20 season, reports J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star. As Michael notes, Johnson’s deal was set to fully guarantee tomorrow, so Indiana will simply refrain from waiving the second-year Missouri State product.

Johnson, 23, saw limited playing time for the Pacers as a rookie, appearing in just 14 games and averaging 4.6 minutes per contest. He was a mainstay for the Pacers’ G League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, however, averaging 19.1 PPG and a team-leading 13.7 RPG in 31 games (all starts).

He continued his promising play this summer, finishing second on the team’s summer league roster in scoring behind point guard Aaron Holiday and leading the team in rebounding at 9.6 boards per contest.

Johnson figures to see limited minutes next season behind Domantas Sabonis and T.J. Leaf, but could see his playing time increase in situations where head coach Nate McMillan opts for smaller lineups, as Sabonis and fellow big man Myles Turner would likely split time in those scenarios
