INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indiana Pacers got the shooting guard they wanted.

Monta Ellis has agreed to terms with the Pacers on a four-year deal worth $44 million, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Thursday. The deal includes a player option for the final year. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. The contract cannot be signed until July 9.

Ellis gives the Pacers a better chance of making a smooth transition from the plodding, half-court offense they used to make the Eastern Conference finals in 2013 and 2014 to an up-tempo style that is flourishing around the league.
