Ben Moore signed a training camp deal with the Pacers.

An undrafted senior out of SMU, Moore averaged 11.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks last season. According to the Pacers, he's not expected to make the 15-man roster and will play with their G-League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Myles Turner said he expects the Pacers to be in the playoffs next season.

"A lot of people look at us as young team that’s going to rebuild, but we’re a young team that’s trying to compete," said Turner. "We’ve got a lot of guys who can come in and make an impact right away. I expect to make the playoffs this year." This is what he's supposed to say, but the reality is that it will be tough for Indiana to compete out East after losing Paul George this offseason. However, the departure of PG-13 should open up a ton of opportunity for Turner, so he should easily be able to flirt with top-20 value next season.

The Indiana Pacers announced they have signed Damien Wilkins.

It was reported back in late July that Indy was going to ink Wilkins to a non-guaranteed, one-year deal and it became official on Tuesday. Wilkins, who is 37, hasn't played in an NBA game since April of 2013. Even if he does end up making the 15-man roster, it is unlikely he cracks the Pacers rotation. Thus, Wilkins can be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Myles Turner said that he wants to be an All-Star next season and expects the Pacers to make the playoffs.

Amazingly, Turner, who is just 21 years old, is the longest tenured player on the Pacers. Despite having only two years of experience under his belt, Turner feels he is ready to take on a leadership role. "I want to start establishing myself as a leader in this league and on this team," he said. While the playoffs are a long shot for the Pacers, Turner will likely be a member of plenty of winning fantasy teams next season. He finished in the top-25 overall in standard leagues in 2016-17 and has a chance to return first-round value next year.

Glenn Robinson III has made it a priority to improve as a ball handler and playmaker this summer.

"One of the biggest things was my ball handling this summer," said Robinson. "Just being able to create for others, you know, help my teammates out a lot. I wasn’t in a lot of pick-and-roll positions in the past couple of years but that’s one of the biggest things that I’ve been working on this summer." Robinson should see some increased opportunity this upcoming season with Paul George no longer on the roster, but he'll likely begin the year coming off the bench behind Bojan Bogdanovic.

Victor Oladipo was named MVP of the 2017 NBA Africa Game after tallying 28 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Oladipo was aggressive offensively throughout, attempting a game-high 25 field goals, including 14 attempts from 3-point territory. Oladipo is coming off a relatively disappointing season with OKC. However, after being traded to Indiana this summer, he should see a significant spike in his usage rate next season, as he will no longer be sharing the floor with Russell Westbrook.

Kevin Seraphin has officially agreed to a two-year deal with Barcelona in the Spanish League.

Seraphin cleared waivers on Thursday after the Pacers released him on July 31st. He averaged 4.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 49 games for Pacers last season.
Aug 4 - 11:22 AM

Kevin Seraphin has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with Barca of Spain.

Seraphin can't actually sign the contract until he clears waivers on Thursday, but it sounds like he'll be headed overseas for the next two seasons. Seraphin can be a solid backup big man, but his inability to stay healthy over the years has really hurt his value.

The Pacers have waived Kevin Seraphin.

Earlier reports had indicated that the Pacers were leaning towards keeping Seraphin, so this move is somewhat surprising. Seraphin should be able to find a minimum level deal somewhere, but regardless of where he winds up, he'll remain a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Jul 31 - 5:16 PM

Barcelona reportedly have interest in Pacers big man Kevin Seraphin.

Seraphin is owed a non-guaranteed $1.9 million in 2017-18 and the Pacers have until Aug. 1 to decide on his future. Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star recently reported that the Pacers are planning to keep him, but his fantasy outlook wouldn't be great with the team rebuilding. If he comes back, expect him to have a limited role behind Myles Turner.

Damien Wilkins will sign a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum to join the Pacers according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders.

Well, we didn't see this one coming. Wilkins is 37 and hasn't played in the NBA since the 2012-13 season. Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that the deal isn't guaranteed, so he's not a lock to make the 15-man roster, let alone crack the rotation. With career averages of 6.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.8 steals, fantasy owners can leave Wilkins off their draft boards.
Jul 20 - 10:02 AM

The Pacers are expected to guarantee Kevin Seraphin's full contract for the 2017-18 season.

Indiana has until August 1st to make its final decision, but GM Kevin Pritchard told reporters that the team currently has 14 guaranteed contracts, which means they have likely decided to hold on to Seraphin. He averaged 4.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 49 games for Pacers last season. He may see a slight increase in his playing time next season, but most likely not enough to warrant consideration in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 18 - 10:57 AM

Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard said he hopes to sign Cory Joseph to a long-term contract extension.

Indiana acquired Joesph via a sign-and-trade for C.J. Miles earlier this month. The Pacers also signed Darren Collison in July, and Collison is expected to be named the starter. However, Collison only has a partial guarantee on his contract for the 2018-19 campaign. As far as next season is concerned, it is difficult to project either Joseph or Collison as reliable fantasy contributors, as they will likely split time fair evenly at point guard.
Jul 18 - 9:20 AM

The Pacers announced that they have signed second-round pick Ike Anigbogu.

Anigbogu was the 47th overall pick in the 2017 draft. He played one season at UCLA and averaged 4.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. Anigbogu did not play in the summer league due to "precautionary reasons" related to a knee injury, but should be ready to roll by training camp. However, he can be ignored in fantasy leagues as it is unlikely he will crack the Pacers rotation.

The Timberwolves are reportedly looking to add a point guard and wing to round out their roster.

Three players on the Wolves radar are Aaron Brooks, Anthony Morrow, and Alan Anderson, according to the Basketball Insiders report. Minnesota has already added three former Bulls this offseason, so the interest in Brooks and Morrow should not be surprising. The Wolves currently have Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones as their top two point guards. Brooks could add depth there and is capable of playing off the ball in short spurts as well.
