The Indiana Pacers signed free agent big Kevin Seraphin late Thursday night. Seraphin last played for the New York Knicks during the 2015-16 NBA season.
Indiana Pacers team president Larry Bird has been very busy this offseason.
The free agent signings continued for the Pacers, as they have agreed to a two-year, $3.6 million deal with Kevin Seraphin, per Shams Charania of The Vertical.
Seraphin was with the Wizards from 2010 up until the conclusion of the 2014-14 season — to which he signed with the Knicks on a one-year deal.
Seraphin’s career never really took off the way some may had envisioned from a first-round talent. He’s averaged 6.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.6 assists in his career.
His best season came in 2012 when he averaged 9.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists through 79 games.
According to Charania, Seraphin had worked out with the Pacers on Monday and Tuesday with a deal being finalized on Thursday night.
A 6-foot-10 big-man, Seraphin gives the Pacers depth in the frontcourt behind Myles Turner and Al Jefferson.
For a team looking to make it’s name as one of the Eastern Conference’s best, the signing is good for the Pacers’ depth.
