Pacers send guard to Ants

Orlando Johnson will have a second stint with the Mad Ants.

The Indiana Pacers re-assigned the rookie guard to Fort Wayne, marking a record 81st assignment between the NBA and the D-League.

Johnson, a 6-foot-5, 220-pounder out of US-Santa Barbara averaged 22.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in two previous games with the Ants. He has played nine minutes in three games with the Pacers.

He is expected to be available when the Ants play Texas on Friday.
