The Indiana Pacers have signed free agent Torrey Craig, who played last season on both teams that made the NBA Finals, the team announced Friday.

The forward, who played in the postseason the last three seasons, spent part of the 2020-21 season with the eventual champion Milwaukee Bucks and finished the year with the Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee's opponent in the finals.

Craig attended the University of South Carolina Upstate and went undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft. He then went on to play three seasons professionally in Australia and New Zealand.

He made his NBA debut in the 2017-18 season with Denver and played with the Nuggets for three seasons from 2017-20.

“Torrey is known for toughness, defense and being a great team guy,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard. “As a player who went undrafted, Torrey got to where he is through hard work and perseverance. He will be a great addition to our depth and our emphasis on defense.”
