Rodney Stuckey has agreed to sign with the Indiana Pacers on a one-year deal, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been signed. USA Today Sports

As the Pistons shift focus away from free agency and toward rounding out their staffs, they have several hires to make, Van Gundy said. The list includes at least two more assistant coaches and one video coordinator, and perhaps one specialized coach, such as a big-man or shooting coach. The team also has to hire several pro and college scouts. Its only scout hirings so far have been advance scout Art Luptowski, the longtime former head coach at American International College (Mass.), and pro personnel scout Al Walker, who worked as an Orlando Magic scout when Van Gundy coached there.

The Pistons have discussed a long-term contract with Monroe worth in the range of $12 million annually but the sides haven't agreed. Monroe also hasn't signed an offer sheet with another team, which the Pistons would have three days to match, or they would lose him without compensation. Booth Newspapers

Stan Van Gundy gave his most direct assessment to date on Greg Monroe's free agency today, and for the first time admitted he finds some of the uncertainty a bit unnerving. That doesn't change anything, the Detroit Pistons' president of basketball operations and head coach stressed, because the plan is in place no matter what Monroe decides or whose palms sweat in getting there. "There's not really anything going on there right now," Van Gundy said. "There's not really a whole lot more that can go on. We'll just see where the situation takes us. "Look, I'm not sweating it right now, because there's nothing that we can do at this point." Booth Newspapers
