After two strong seasons with the Pacers, T.J. McConnell is staying in Indiana.

The former Arizona Wildcats guard is inking a four-year, $35 million deal with the Pacers, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.

McConnell averaged 8.6 points, 6.6 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game on 56 percent shooting—all career highs—this season. He averaged 26 minutes per game and started in three of the 69 games in which he appeared.

The Pacers went 34-38, finishing ninth in the Eastern Conference. They will be coached by former Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle next season.

McConnell was previously on a two-year, $7 million deal with the Pacers. That was after he spent the first four years of his career with the Philadelphia 76ers after signing as an undrafted free agent.

Assuming McConnell sticks in the league through his new contract, he will be eligible for Arizona’s Ring of Honor as a 10-year NBA veteran.
