The movement was first reported after Thursday’s trade deadline, however the Pacers couldn’t announce it before Sunday. Matthews was waived by the Knicks following a deal that delivered Kristaps Porzingis into Dallas. He cleared waivers.
Terms of the deal weren’t announced.
Matthews, 32, may help fill the emptiness left by All-Star shield Victor Oladipo, who will miss the rest of this season with a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee.
In 44 games with Dallas, Matthews made 44 starts and averaged 13.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
Pacers president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard called Matthews that a”solid professional” who’ll”fit in well” together with Indiana.
