Pacers Expressing Interest In MarShon Brooks

Scouring for a wing player in the aftermath of Paul George’s leg injury, the Indiana Pacers have MarShon Brooks on a short list of free agent possibilities, league sources told RealGM.

Brooks played for the Sacramento Kings in the Las Vegas summer league last month, averaging 10.1 points and 53.1 percent field-goal shooting in seven games. After a disappointing stretch early in his career, Brooks has needed to re-prove himself as an effective NBA scorer whom the Brooklyn Nets acquired with the 25th pick in the 2011 NBA draft.

After four collegiate seasons at Providence, Brooks averaged 12.6 points as a rookie, but the 6-foot-5 swingman has suffered fluctuation of his playing time and game condition. Brooks, 25, has played three pro seasons with four different teams, scoring 7.7 points per game while shooting 44.2 percent.

The Kings and an Eastern Conference contender have also been in discussions with Brooks, sources told RealGM. Brooks split last season with the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.

George sustained a fracture in his right leg in Team USA's exhibition game on Friday night, a devastating blow to one of the league’s best talents, the Pacers and USA Basketball. His dad, Paul George Sr., told the Indianapolis Star that the expectation is for George to miss the entire 2014-15 season. Nevertheless, George has received a stream of support – privately and publicly – from teammates, former teammates and competitors.

“Paul’s character," one league friend said when asked about a leading reason for the outpouring encouragement since George's injury.

Kings Sign Eric Moreland To Three-Year Deal

The Sacramento Kings have signed Eric Moreland – a defensive revelation in NBA summer league – to a three-year contract, multiple league sources told RealGM.

Moreland provided an active, shot-blocking force for the Kings’ summer league team this month in Las Vegas, and the 6-foot-10 forward averaged 3.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in 19.2 minutes per game. After summer league play, DeMarcus Cousins expressed a desire for Sacramento to sign Moreland.

Several teams, including the Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks, had interest in a free agent deal with Moreland. Still, Moreland and the Kings negotiated toward a contract over the weekend and into the week, and both sides agreed to terms on Tuesday. 

Moreland showed versatility in ball handling and defending during the NBA pre-draft process, but went undrafted and reached a summer league agreement with the Kings.

Moreland, 22, was an early entry candidate as a redshirt junior at Oregon State University, where he averaged 8.9 points, 10.2 rebounds, nearly two blocks and one assist a season ago.
