Pacers, Rodney Stuckey come to terms on one-year deal


Detroit Free Press

Rodney Stuckey's seven-year run with the Detroit Pistons is over.

The free agent shooting guard agreed to a one-year deal with the Pacers late Wednesday, a source with firsthand knowledge of the situation told the Free Press.

The source requested anonymity because he isn't authorized to speak publicly for the Pacers.

The Indianapolis Star reported that Stuckey's agent confirmed the agreement is a one-year deal.

But Stuckey will now be playing for a Central Division rival.

With new coach Stan Van Gundy emphasizing the addition of shooting, it was speculated that Stuckey's days with Pistons were numbered.

The Pacers are getting Stuckey to replace Lance Stephenson, who signed with the Charlotte Hornets.

Stuckey averaged 13.4 points and 3.9 assists per game over seven seasons with the Pistons. He scored 13.9 points per game last season.

USA Today was first to report the agreement.
