The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday they have re-signed free agent forward Josh McRoberts to a multi-year contract. Per club policy, teams of the contract were not closed. We’ll post contract info tonight.

“We are very pleased to have Josh back,” said Pacers President of Basketball Larry Bird. “He’s another player who fits into the core group of guys we want to build around. He worked very hard the last year to improve his game, I know he will continue to work and improve and be part of what we are trying to build.”

The 6-10 McRoberts, acquired in a trade July 9, 2008, from Portland, played 33 games for the Pacers, averaging 2.4 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.

“I was thrilled last summer when the Pacers brought me back home,” said McRoberts, from Carmel, IN. “I have the same feeling now that they thought enough of me to bring me back. This is home and I want to be part of what the Pacers are trying to do.”
