Pacers add depth, sign former Thunder guard Watson
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Pacers have signed free agent guard Earl Watson to a multiyear contract.
Terms of the deal were not released Tuesday.
The 6-foot-1 veteran was waived earlier this month by Oklahoma City. He also has played with Seattle, Memphis and Denver in eight NBA seasons.
Watson adds depth to an Indiana team that has already lost one guard, Jarrett Jack, in free agency and is likely to lose another, Marquis Daniels, this offseason. Last week, the Pacers declined to match Toronto’s $20 million offer sheet for Jack. Daniels’ agent has said he is heading to Boston.
Watson has averaged 7.3 points and 4.6 assists over his career, including 6.6 points and 5.8 assists last season for the Thunder.
