Pacers recall Christmas, send Whittington back to Mad Ants

BY foxsports • January 29, 2016

Shayne Whittington's call-up to the Indiana Pacers was long enough to score a bucket against the Hawks, and now it's over.

The Pacers announced Friday they had assigned the forward/center back to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants while recalling forward Rakeem Christmas from their NBA Development League affiliate.

Christmas, a rookie from Syracuse, has averaged 15.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game in 25 games with Fort Wayne this season. He did not play in an earlier call-up.

With his basket against Atlanta, Whittington is averaging 1.3 points in three games with the Pacers spanning two call-ups.
