The Indiana Pacers are signing free-agent center Kyrylo Fesenko to a rest-of-the-season contract, according to sources with knowledge of the deal, ESPN.com reported.

The Golden State Warriors and Fesenko mutually canceled their plans in December to finalize a one-year deal worth just under $1.1 million, partly because Fesenko needed additional time to get into game shape after September knee surgery.

Fesenko was also courted heavily by the Dallas Mavericks in December but remained unsigned until this week, when he received strong interest from Boston and Indiana.
