Pacers signing Trey McKinney-Jones to 10-day deal

Trey McKinney-Jones

With the All-Star Game over and teams looking to get ready for the playoff push, there are many teams starting to sign guys to ten-day contracts.

The Indiana Pacers joined that mix on Tuesday signing Trey McKinney-Jones from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants to a 10-day contract.

McKinney-Jones played for two years in college with the University of Missouri-Kansas City Kangaroos before transferring to the University of Miami for his last two years.

He went undrafted in the 2013 draft and joined the Milwaukee Bucks for training camp. He didn’t make the regular season roster and was then signed by the Mad Ants.

After playing one season with the Mad Ants he went overseas before coming back to join the team in 2016.

So far this season he has appeared in 26 games with the Mad Ants starting in five of them. He is averaging 11.4 points and 2.8 assists in 26.8 minutes per game.

He is shooting almost 50 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from deep.

He comes from a strong line of family pedigree. His uncle Mark Jones played in the NBA for the Orlando Magic, and his Aunt, Esther Jones was a gold medal sprinter in the Barcelona Olympics.

McKinney-Jones should give the Pacers a little point guard depth off the bench and he can come in and make shots if he needs too.
