In the News: Mad Ants guards gets 2nd shot with Pacers

Ants guards gets shot with Pacers

Mad Ants guard Ron Howard will have a second chance to land with the Pacers.

The 6-foot-5 Howard, along with fellow D-League player Darnell Jackson, a 6-8 forward with the Reno Bighorns, signed free agent contracts with Indiana, the Pacers announced Tuesday.

Howard was cut from the Pacers’ rookie and free-agent camp on July 5.

Howard has played six seasons for the Ants, averaging 16.8 points and 2.8 assists in 198 games.

The former Valparaiso standout averaged 19.1 points, 4.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds last season for the Ants as the team reached the D-League playoffs for the first time after its first winning season (27-25). Howard averaged 23.5 points in two playoff games.

Howard is a two-time D-League All-Star, and this year he won the Jason Collier Sportsmanship Award, presented to the D-League player who best represents character and conduct on and off the court.
