Agent: David West reaches agreement with Pacers

Posted Dec 11 2011 4:08PM

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- David West's agent says the former New Orleans Hornets power forward is joining the Indiana Pacers.

Agent Lance Young says West, who opted for free agency after last season, has reached agreement on a two-year contract worth $20 million with Indiana.

The Pacers did not confirm the deal.

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

The 31-year-old had reconstructive surgery on the knee 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.
