Gill finally finds security with Pacers
Analyzing the point guards
Pacers Player Movement Central
Does Gill upgrade backcourt?
For the first time in his career, Gill won't have to fight for a roster spot, as the Pacers signed him to a guaranteed contract. Each of his other NBA stints have been midseason call-ups for 10-day contracts. The Pacers like his quickness, mid-range shooting and defensive aggressiveness. Though he's behind veterans Jamaal Tinsley and Anthony Johnson in the rotation, he offers a change-of-pace matchup in that he can apply full-court pressure, defensively, and alter the tempo of the game, offensively.
