The 26-year-old was most recently acquired via trade by the Nets on Oct. 6, 2021, before being waived on Oct. 10, and did not participate in the 2021-22 NBA season due to a torn left Achilles tendon. In his last full season in 2020-21 with the Pacers, he appeared in 53 games (24 starts) and averaged a career-high 7.5 points on 52.5 percent shooting from the field (career high), 39.8 percent shooting from 3-point range (career high) and 81.9 percent shooting from the free-throw line (career high) and 1.8 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game. During his time in Indiana, Sumner saw action in four career playoff games and recorded averages of 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per contest. Sumner was originally selected by the New Orleans Pelicans with the 52nd overall pick in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft before being dealt to Indiana in a draft-night trade.

Indiana Pacers: Is pursuing a reunion with Edmond Sumner worth it?

The Indiana Pacers’ injury-marred 2021-22 season was, in keeping with the near-annual Indy tradition, almost a preset condition. One of the earliest signs that the Blue and Gold would once again limp for the year was the brutal injury to Edmond Sumner, who tore his Achilles before the season even started, preemptively snapping what could have been a career-year for the combo guard.
