Tyreke Evans had plenty of suitors, and decided to sign with the Indiana Pacers.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Evans has agreed to a one-year deal that will be worth $12 million for next season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract cannot be signed until Friday at the earliest.

Evans is a proven scorer, and expanded his 3-point ability last season as well. He spent last year with Memphis, averaging 19.4 points per game.

For his career, Evans has averaged 16.5 points in stints with Sacramento, New Orleans and the Grizzlies. He also had meetings with Golden State and Oklahoma City, among others, before choosing the Pacers.
