The Indiana Pacers have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal with veteran swingman Damien Wilkins, a league source told Basketball Insiders.
Wilkins, the son of Gerald Wilkins and nephew of Dominique Wilkins, spent last season with the Greensboro Swarm of the NBA D-League. The 37-year-old swingman averaged 14.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 31.5 minutes per game. Wilkins shot 49 percent from the field, 36 percent from beyond the arc and 84 percent from the free throw line.
Indiana now has 15 players on the roster.
Wilkins last played in the NBA during the 2012-13 season with the Philadelphia 76ers.
It’s worth noting new Pacers general manager Chad Buchanan was in Charlotte last season while Wilkins played for Greensboro, the team’s D-League affiliate.
Wilkins was a D-League All-Star and All-NBA D-League Third Team member in 2015 for the Iowa Energy. The 6-foot-6 swingman averaged 20.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 37.8 minutes per game during that campaign.
