NBA Pacers sign guard Matthews after release by Knicks

Pacers add Wesley Matthews to roster after he clears waivers

Matthews was sent to the Knicks from the Mavericks in late January as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade.

The Indiana Pacers officially signed guard Wesley Matthews on Sunday, the team announced.

After being traded to New York, Matthews and the Knicks agreed to a contract buyout that made him a free agent Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not available.

The 32-year-old spent one season in Utah before he played with the Portland Trail Blazers from 2010-2015.

Matthews will help fill the void left by All-Star guard Victor Oladipo, who will miss the rest of this season with a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee.

The 32-year-old son of Wes Matthews, a two-time National Basketball Association champion with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s, has averaged 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists over 45 appearances this season for the Knicks and Dallas Mavericks.

As Wesley Matthews was weighing his free agency options recently, Russell Westbrook and Paul George tried to recruit the 10-year veteran to the Thunder.

He's a career 38.2 percent shooter from 3-point range.
