Rumor Central: Pacers adding Damien Wilkins to roster

According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, the Indiana Pacers and shooting guard Damien Wilkins have agreed to a one-year contract for the veteran minimum. The agreement probably offers little to no salary protection for the 2017-18 NBA season.

Wilkins, 37, last played in the NBA during the 2012-13 season with the Philadelphia 76ers when he averaged 6.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists.

During the 2016-17 season, Wilkins played in the G League with the Charlotte Hornets affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm, and in 48 games he averaged 14.8 points and 5.3 rebounds.

The Pacers have 14 players under contract who appear to be locks to make the opening night roster, so Wilkins will compete with future signings during training camp and the preseason for the 15th spot on the team.
