Default Pacers Sign Travis Diener

Pacers reach agreement with a point guard

The Indiana Pacers have found their backup point guard.

The Pacers have agreed to a three-year deal with a player option on the third year with Travis Diener, Diener's agent, Doug Neustadt, said today.

Neustadt said the deal will be finalized early next week.

Diener, who played at Marquette, averaged 3.8 points and 1.3 assists in 26 games with the Orlando Magic last season.

Diener, who is entering his third season, will backup starter Jamaal Tinsley next season.

Now he can wear the same colors as Marquette.

i don't think i've ever seen him play due to his restricted minutes in orlando. he is a 3pt shooter though that may help. don't know too much about his passing/ball handling skills. anyone?

Yeah he can shoot the ball. But based on what I have heard of him, he is a decent ball handler/passer. I believe this was a solid move for the Pacers. Travis Diener played very well in limited minutes with the Magic the last 2 seasons. I would also expect the Pacers to sign a third point guard as well (Tinsley/Diener are the only two point guards currently signed). Perhaps Jannero Pargo or Keith McLeod?
