Plumlee to join Ants

Pacers sending players for 1st time

Miles Plumlee, the Indiana Pacers' first-round pick in this year's NBA Draft, will join the Mad Ants for their first two games this season.

Plumlee, a native of Warsaw, has played in four games with the Pacers, totaling four points and five rebounds. He is a center/forward.

The Pacers are also assigning guard Orlando Johnson, a rookie, who has played in two games this season.

They will be in the lineup Friday against Erie and Sunday against Maine, at Memorial Coliseum.

These are the first two players ever assigned by the Pacers to their D-League affiliate.

"We could not be happier to have Miles and Orlando join our team for these first two games," Mad Ants coach Duane Ticknor said. "We think we can provide both players a great opportunity to improve their games, and I am excited for this watershed moment in our partnership with the Pacers."
