    In case anyone was wondering, according to all the major sports websites we have signed all 3 of them to a one-year deal. I'm guessing it comes down to Gaines and Ahearn at the end of training camp, one of them will likely be cut. Glad that we got a guy to replace what Dahntay did in Young.

    The Indiana Pacers have made training camp more competitive by signing Blake Ahearn, Sundiata Gaines and Sam Young on Thursday, reports The Indianapolis Star. The contracts are likely for just one season and not fully guaranteed.

    Ahearn and Gaines will compete with Lance Stephenson for the third point guard spot on the team behind George Hill and D.J. Augustin.

    Young can play the shooting guard and small forward positions and his main competition at those spots are Stephenson and Gerald Green.

    The Pacers now have 16 players under contract and either Ahearn or Gaines will likely be the last cut close to opening night to get the roster down to the 15-man limit.

    Some Sam Young stuff

    Young and agent Joel Bell had maintained a steady dialogue with Indiana after free agency opened July 1. The Pacers announced Young’s signing Sept. 6.

    “He thought it was a great fit because of the way their team is structured and the way they play,” Bell said. “It seemed like a great situation.”

    Among other options, Bell said Indiana offered Young an opportunity to continue to swing back and forth between small forward and shooting guard.

    “He thinks of himself as a guy that’s ready to help a team that’s already pretty good and help them have a great season,” Bell said.
