TORONTO -- The Indiana Pacers are about to get some help in the backcourt.
Flip Murray, who was waived by the Detroit Pistons last week, is expected to sign with the Pacers on Saturday.
The Pacers want Murray to help starter Travis Diener to help fill the point guard void left by Jamaal Tinsley. Tinsley has been out since Feb. 5 because of a knee injury. He said before Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors that he doesn't know when he'll be back in the lineup.
Murray averaged 7.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 19 games with the Pistons this season. He has played in 309 games with Detroit, Milwaukee, Seattle and Cleveland in his five-year career.
