The Indiana Pacers have signed forward Dominic McGuire to a 10-day contract.
McGuire is a 6-foot-9, 235-pound forward who has played with six teams during his six-year NBA career. He played nine games earlier this season with the New Orleans Hornets where he averaged 2.1 points and 3.1 rebounds.
McGuire was Washington's second-round draft pick in 2007, No. 47 overall.
The move comes one day after Indiana released forward Sam Young. The four-year veteran averaged 3.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 28 games this season. They also have recalled first-round draft pick Miles Plumlee from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA's D-League.

It was was the best stretch of his career to date; he literally did everything at a high level, helping his Indiana Pacers to go 10-5. As...
In what has been a rough season for the New Orleans Hornets, point guard Greivis Vasquez has been one of the few bright spots exceeding expectations. The former Maryland standout has clearly taken the next step as an NBA player. He is currently tied for third in the league in assists, averaging nine per game. He’s only behind Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul; which is in elite company...
Eric Gordon is one of those players who can really play, but never stays healthy enough to prove it. He was the main piece in the deal that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers, and he is just now getting back into action for the Hornets.
He’s only played in three games, but he’s already hit a game winner. Watch below, as he even got fouled in the process of lifting the Hornets over...
