Pacers Release Damien Wilkins

INDIANAPOLIS – On Saturday night, Damien Wilkins was in the Indiana Pacers’ starting lineup. By Sunday afternoon, he was no longer on the team’s roster.

In a move that allows Indy to avoid paying for a roster guarantee and gives them more flexibility moving forward with roster moves, the Pacers requested waivers on Wilkins on Sunday.

Wilkins, whose 38th birthday is on Thursday, scored 11 points as a starter in Saturday’s game against Chicago. He played in 19 games and averaged 1.7 points per game.

Wilkins had not played in the NBA since 2013 before making Indiana’s roster in camp.
