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."
