Wesley Matthews said it was "huge" that the Pacers guaranteed him a starting role.February 11, 2019 | 06:58 AM
"That's how I view myself and that's how this organization views me," Matthews said. "That's big right there." Coach Nate McMillan confirmed it, adding that Matthews "didn't come here [to] sit on the bench." The Pacers scheduled an additional practice on Sunday to help Matthews get familiar with the playbook, so he could hit the ground running. He could be a late-round value for his contributions in points, assists, triples and steals, while guys like Tyreke Evans, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday lose value.
