The Indiana Pacers boosted their squad, signing free-agent Torrey Craig. Per team policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Torrey is known for toughness, defense, and being a great team guy," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard. "As a player who went undrafted, Torrey got to where he is through hard work and perseverance. He will be a great addition to our depth and our emphasis on defense."

Craig went undrafted in the 2014 NBA Draft. After that, he played three seasons in Australia and New Zealand. The American forward (30, 2.01) made his NBA debut with the Denver Nuggets in 2017. Craig stayed there till 2020 before splitting the 2020-21 regular season with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns.
