Sloan was signed before summer league began, to a minimum salary contract with a nominal $10,000 in guaranteed compensation. However, he then played very badly in summer league, averaging only 3.0 points despite starting all 5 games, shooting 22% from the field, with a near 1:2 assist/turnover ratio. Sloan improved as a scorer in his career at Texas A&M; strong, athletic enough, efficient from all areas, crafty, and able to create for himself off the dribble, but by being neither a point guard, nor a two guard, nor an athlete, nor a defender, nor a shooter, undersized at 6'3 and a bit ball-dominant, he doesn't have an obvious role in the NBA.

Donald Sloan

Sloan has signed a two-year minimum salary contract with the Pacers already. (You're allowed to sign both minimum salary and rookie scale deals during the moratorium - Solomon Hill has also already signed.) He spent much of last year in the NBA, mostly with Cleveland, for whom he had a reasonable role up until the contract guarantee date. Sloan's problem is his niche - he's very solid, skilled, tough and smart, and, in his pro career to date, has handled the transition from primarily a scorer to primarily a playmaker with aplomb. Without much dynamicism in the process, Sloan commits few mistakes and is a capable third string point guard. But nothing more than that.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
