INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - It's open season for NBA free agents, and the Pacers have agreed to a deal with shooting guard Doug McDermott, according to the player's representative, Priority Sports.

McDermott is leaving Dallas for a three year deal with the Pacers, according to a tweet by the agency.


ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported McDermott's deal, citing a league source who said the contract is worth $22-million.

The team has not confirmed the agreement.

The Pacers would be McDermott's sixth NBA team. He was drafted out of Creighton University by Denver as the 11th overall pick in 2014, but traded by the Nuggets to Chicago the night of the draft. He spent parts of three seasons with the Bulls before he was traded to Oklahoma City in the winter of 2017 and finished out that season with the Thunder.

In September of 2017, the Thunder traded McDermott to the New York Knicks in the Carmelo Anthony deal.

Before this past season's trade deadline, McDermott was again dealt, this time to Dallas in a three-way deal that also involved the Nuggets.

For his career, McDermott has averaged 20 minutes per game, largely coming off the bench, scoring just under 8 points per game and shooting 40-percent from three-point range.
