Pacers waive Johnson, Stewart
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Pacers have placed Omari Johnson and Elijah Stewart on waivers.
The moves came less than a week before Indiana’s regular-season opener against Memphis, which is at home Wednesday.
Johnson is a 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward who made his NBA debut in 2017. The Oregon State alum did not appear in any preseason games with Indiana.
Stewart is a 6-5, 194-pound guard from Southern California. He was averaging 3.5 points and 1.5 rebounds during the preseason.
Johnson and Stewart had signed with Indiana as free agents in September.
