INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers have signed forward Alex Poythress to a new contract that will end his two-way designation.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available Thursday.

Poythress started the season shuttling between the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the G League and the Pacers. But after watching him in 11 games, Indiana decided to keep Poythress with the NBA team. He’s averaging 0.9 points and 0.7 rebounds.
