I think it’s a great team and this is a great opportunity. I can’t wait.” "Luis will be a very important asset to our team and to our bench,” Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird said. “He has NBA experience, international experience and is the type of player that will fit in nicely on our roster. I want to thank Gerald and Miles for their contributions. They had tough years last season, but worked hard, never complained and contributed to the great chemistry our team had. I think Gerald and Miles will be solid additions in Phoenix and we wish them well." Scola has career averages of 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.
