Rodney Stuckey G IND 14 Days

Stuckey is an option to start for the Pacers in 2014-15, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Stuckey was originally signed by the Pacers to serve as a partial Lance Stephenson replacement, but with Paul George now set to miss the 2014-15 campaign, the team is now down two key contributors from last season. There are two starting spots currently open, and based on coach Frank Vogel's press conference indications, it seems to be up to Stuckey, CJ Miles and Solomon Hill to claim them. Chris Copeland and Damjan Rudez are also options, but it seems as if the team is leaning towards their two major free agent acquisitions and the home-grown Hill to fill the void. Stuckey will surely have to earn his role during camp, but at this point, 25 minutes per game may not be an unrealistic expectation.

Rodney Stuckey officially signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Pacers on Monday.

The former Pistons guard accepted the veteran's minimum to join a winning team, saying, "It's never fun when you're losing, especially when you have to go through it for 82 games." He said he'll embrace any role the Pacers see fit to give him, and without Lance Stephenson around he has a good chance to start at SG alongside George Hill.

Rodney Stuckey has spent this offseason working to improve his jump shot.

"Obviously, just become a better shooter. Once I [become] more consistent with my jump shot, I'll be fine," Stuckey said. "Just got to continue to put up shots, just repetition." Stuckey has done most of his scoring throughout his career from the free throw line and closer, but he struggles with the mid-range jump shot (35.9 percent from 16-to-22 feet). He's also never shot better than 31.7 percent from 3-point range his entire career, so Stuckey has his work cut out for him. Perhaps the additional talent in Indiana will allow Stuckey to get better looks, but we wouldn't expect a drastic improvement from the 7-year-veteran.

Rodney Stuckey spoke like the prototypical team player in a recent interview, and he appears to be genuinely excited to be joining a winning team in Indiana.

"If they want me to come off the bench, then I'll do that. If they need me to start, I'll do that. It doesn't really matter. Whatever they need me to do, I'll do," Stuckey said. "I'm excited to have a fresh start. It's going to be good for me... I want to win. I'm going to come in and work hard. I'm going to earn everyone's respect. I'm going to earn my minutes and I'm just going to come in and just compete." Stuckey wasn't asked to do much besides score in Detroit, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do with a bit of an expanded opportunity/role in Indiana. Stuckey should be able to improve a bit on last season's averages of 13.9 points, 2.1 assists, and 0.7 steals per game.

Rodney Stuckey said on Thursday that his move to Indiana is a "a fresh start," for the veteran guard.

"My main goal, I want to get back into the playoffs," he said. "I want to compete and I want to win." Stuckey admits that the last few losing seasons in Detroit were hard on him personally, and that he was anxious to get back to a winning situation. "I just don't like to lose. In Detroit, I've had people accept losing and I don't accept that." Stuckey will likely be tasked with replacing Lance Stephenson as the starting shooting guard in Indiana.

The Pacers have agreed to a one-year deal with G Rodney Stuckey.

Stuckey will replace Lance Stephenson (and probably Evan Turner), who will sign a three-year deal with the Hornets. While Stuckey is no Stephenson, he is a solid NBA player and a better option than C.J. Miles, and will probably have some decent, late-round fantasy value as a starting two guard in Indy.

The Pacers are interested in acquiring veteran guard Rodney Stuckey, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The Pacers have a huge void to fill at shooting guard after the departure of Lance Stephenson. Stuckey averaged 13.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists on 43.6 percent shooting last season, primarily coming off the bench as a sixth man. He will not be able to reproduce the production of Stephenson, but if he were to become a full-time starter his fantasy value would increase heading into next season.

The Magic are expected to pursue Rodney Stuckey in free agency.

It would be a surprise to see the Pistons keep Stuckey. While he was fairly productive last season with 13.9 points per game last year, he's not the type of player who would be best served in coach Stan Van Gundy's system. The Magic are believed to be trading away Jameer Nelson, so Stuckey would likely back up rookie Elfrid Payton.

Rodney Stuckey will not take a mid-level exception, according to Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News.

He's an unrestricted free agent and one would think Stuckey isn't coming back. The Pistons really need to add some 3-point shooting to their backcourt and Stuckey has been one of the least effective guards from beyond the arc. Some teams will certainly look to add the 28-year-old guard to a multiple-year deal.

Rodney Stuckey will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

There has been no reason given on his status and it might just be rest. Stuckey finished the season on a high note with some solid scoring performances, but his game just doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is starting tonight.
