Travis Diener to sign $4.9M deal with the Indiana Pacers

Fantastic. Per reports today, Travis Diener will sign a 3-year, $4.9M deal with the Indiana Pacers shortly. The deal includes a player option for the third year.

If the deal goes through, Diener would be the primary backup to Jamaal Tinsley.

Here are a few reports:

"Money was secondary," said Bob Diener, whose son was unavailable for comment Thursday. "He wanted an opportunity to play. "The Pacers seemed like a good opportunity to prove himself."

"The Pacers noted their interest in Travis early in the process and they followed up consistently," said Diener's agent, Doug Neustadt. "There's a wide-open spot there for minutes and Travis is looking forward to the opportunity."
