    December 13, 2011 No comments

    David West is headed north to Indiana, where he will join forces with Danny Granger and former Hornets teammate Darren Collison.

    West agreed to a two-year deal with the Pacers on Sunday that his agent, Lance Young, said was worth $20 million.

    West, a two-time All-Star who was drafted 18th overall by New Orleans in 2003, started 70 games for the Hornets last season, averaging 18.9 points and 7.6 rebounds before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a victory at Utah on March 24.

    The 31-year-old had reconstructive surgery on April 12 and opted out of a deal 2 1/2 months later that would have paid him $7.5 million with the Hornets this season. West said he has been rehabilitating

    vigorously and has felt strong enough to play for a number of weeks now.

    The Pacers also announced that they have re-signed veteran center Jeff Foster.

    The 6-foot-11 free agent has been with the Pacers his entire 12-year career. He has career averages of 4.9 points and 6.9 rebounds. Foster is among the Pacers’ top 10 in 11 different categories.

    The Pacers also announced the signing of free agent forward/center Jeff Pendergraph along with four NBA Development League players Jarrid Famous, Tyren Johnson, Darnell Lazare and Matt Rogers.
