In a bit of a surprise move before Summer League, the Indiana Pacers have waived Alex Poythress.
It’s unclear if he’ll still play for the Summer Pacers, but he’ll have extra motivation now as he’ll be auditioning for all 30 NBA teams.
Poythress played limited minutes after signing a 2-year deal on December last season. His contract was unguaranteed until later this month. The Pacers could have waited until after the games in Las Vegas to make a decision on his deal but decided to waive him now.
The Pacers could still bring him back on a 2-way deal like he started out last season.
