INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Following an impressive NBA Summer League showing in Orlando, former Iowa State star Georges Niang has officially signed a contract with the Indiana Pacers, the team announced Monday.

Per team policy, the Pacers did not disclose terms of the contract to the public.

According to the Ames Tribune, Niang’s contract is a three-year deal with a team option for the second year and a player option for the third.

The 50th overall pick in the NBA Draft averaged 10.2 points and 6.8 rebounds per game in the Summer League.

“The biggest thing I bring to the court every day is my basketball IQ,” Niang told NBA.com. “I read the scouting reports. I study the game and I try to come with a knowledge of how and when to be in the right spots and do whatever is necessary. Winning is not always about having the most athleticism. Sometimes it’s just playing.”

Niang finished his Cyclone career as the winningest player in school history and second on the all-time scoring list.
