The Indiana Pacers got bounced from the NBA playoffs in the conference finals and are now looking at ways they can improve the roster over the summer to make sure a flame out doesn’t happen for the fourth straight year.
Three of those four flameouts came against the Miami Heat and the Pacers havae gone ahead and made a move to counter that of Miami’s moves this offseason by adding a guard to their backcourt they hope can throw the Heat nad all others that stand in their way off their game if ever so slightly.
According to Indianapolis Star reporter Candace Bucker, the Pacers have agreed to terms with free agent guard C.J. Miles.
The IndyStar has learned that free agent CJ Miles has agreed to a multi-year contract with the #Pacers. More details to come.

The Pacers are adding talent on the second day of free agency but the question this all leads to is will Indiana have enough money to bring back Lance Stephenson this summer? So far it’s looking like it’s not a very hot market for the guard, which means his asking price may end up coming down by default, but the Pacers have brought on a few new players this offseason so far and none of them yet have been Stephenson.
