The Pacers waived 2016 second-round pick Georges Niang on Friday.

The Indiana Pacers continued their offseason roster makeover on Friday evening, waiving forward Georges Niang.

Niang was selected by Indiana with the 50th overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft, and recorded a total of 21 points and 17 rebounds over 23 games during his rookie season with the Pacers.

Niang also made six regular season starts for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Pacers’ affiliate in the NBA Gatorade League, and averaged 19.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

Most recently, the 24-year-old forward had been playing for the Pacers' NBA Summer League team, but he had seen action in just one game, playing one minute and collecting two points and a rebound.
