Reigning G League MVP Cut Loose By Indiana Pacers

Another season of tearing it up in the G League hasn't been enough to retain his two-way contract with the Indiana Pacers. The team has announced that they've waived reigning G League MVP Trevelin Queen. 
Two days earlier, Queen had been suspended for one game “for directing threatening language toward a game official." That suspension kept him out of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants' one-game quarterfinal matchup, which they proceeded to lose. It's unknown if the Pacers' move to cut him was directly related. 

Queen averaged 22.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.1 steals for the Mad Ants in the regular season. 

In the Showcase Cup, his numbers were even better, averaging 23.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists, and 2.3 steals. His downfall is shooting threes: He was at 26.5% this season, and just 30% over the last three seasons in the G League, despite his MVP honors last year. 

The 26-year-old 6'6" guard has been on a two-way all season with the Pacers, but made it into only seven games. He averaged 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10 minutes per contest. 

He'll now re-enter free agency.
