The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday they have signed their second round draft pick (52nd pick overall) A.J. Price to a multi-year contract.
Per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Price, a 6-2, 181-pound guard from the University of Connecticut, was named to the All-Big East Second Team, USBWA All-District First Team and Big East All-Tournament Team as a senior.
For his career, he had 1,284 career points in three seasons, ranking 25th all-time at Connecticut. He also handed out 469 career assists (4.7 apg), which ranks 9th in school history.
I think the backup PG spot is basically his after next year.
About time. Guess they were waiting on the Quis situation to work itself out. I'm not as high on him as some seem to be, but I'll certainly give him a chance. I do remember him hitting some big time shots at UConn.
Price from what I heard had a pretty solid summer league. It will be interesting to see what he along with the rest of the Pacer players can do this upcoming season. I wish Price nothing but the best with the Pacers.
