MILWAUKEE (AP) -Travis Diener has agreed to a three-year deal with the Indiana Pacers and the former Marquette star is expected to sign early next week.
``He's excited,'' agent Doug Neustadt said Thursday. ``He thinks there's a great opportunity. There's some minutes at point guard and he wants to be the guy.''
Diener is expected to back up Jamaal Tinsley. The deal includes a player option to void the contract after the second year.
The Orlando Magic took Diener in the second round of the 2005 draft, and he played 49 games with them in two years. Last season, he played 26 games, averaging 3.8 points and 1.3 assists.
Orlando was not interested in having him return and let him negotiate as a restricted free agent.
