The Indiana Pacers have agreed to a two-year, $20-million contract with free agent power forward David West, multiple media outlets reported Sunday.
The Pacers were able to obtain West after a proposed sign-and-maneuver between the Boston Celtics and New Orleans Hornets fell apart.
“David looks at the Pacers as a good young team with a lot of potential,” West’s agent, Lance Young, told the Indianapolis Star. “He feels his experience and leadership will help a team like the Pacers. He was excited that Jeff Foster re-signed wit them. He feels like Indiana is the best spot for him and his family.” YAHOO
So let me get this straight. Jeff Foster is one of reasons why David West wants to go to the Pacers? Jeff Foster?
