Report: Indiana Pacers have 'serious interest' in free agent Rodney Stuckey

Wednesday July 16th, 2014

The Indiana Pacers lost starting shooting guard Lance Stephenson to the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday. As the Pacers begin their search for his replacement, the team has "serious interest" in free agent Rodney Stuckey, reports's Marc Stein. 

Stuckey has spent his entire seven-year career with the Detroit Pistons, averaging 13.4 points and 3.9 assists per game. Last year, he averaged 13.9 points and 2.1 assists per game on 43.6 percent shooting.

Stuckey shot just 27.3 percent from three-point range last year, which could be a problem for the Pacers, who ranked 22nd in the NBA in threes made last season.
