Eric Pincus: The Indiana Pacers’ contract with C.J. Fair is also a non-guaranteed min summer contract @BBallInsiders
Shams Charania: Free agent C.J. Fair, out of Syracuse in 2014, has agreed to a 1-year camp deal with the Indiana Pacers, agent Joel Bell tells Yahoo.
Free agent rookie C.J. Fair of Syracuse has received a training camp invitation from the Indiana Pacers and will sign a non-guaranteed contract with the franchise, league sources told RealGM. After four collegiate seasons, Fair went undrafted in June and played for the Dallas Mavericks in the Las Vegas summer league. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged four points and 2.6 rebounds in five games for Dallas’ entry – including a vicious left-handed dunk on the Toronto Raptors.
Harris said the Mavericks and a few other NBA teams had extended invitations to their training camps to Fair, but the invites came with no guarantees. Meanwhile, Harris said he had secured a $200,000 deal with a team in Europe for Fair. “It was a great deal,” Harris said. “It was a deal with a EuroCup team that he chose not to take.” Italian sports journalist Guido Guida reported on Twitter that Fair has signed with agent Joel Bell of the Bell Sports Inc.
C.J. Fair has fired his agent and signed on with a new agency, both his former agent and his father confirmed on Thursday. Fair, who led Syracuse University in scoring in each of the last two seasons, was not selected in the NBA’s draft last June. He played in the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League with the Dallas Mavericks. The summer league ended last weekend. “He terminated me yesterday,” Torrel Harris, who had been representing Fair, said Thursday. “I like C.J. I wish the best for him.”
