The Indiana Pacers have kept some CanCon on their roster heading into 2019-20.

Mississauga native Naz Mitrou-Long has signed a two-way deal with the Pacers according to The Athletic's Scott Agness. He joins Brian Bowen II as Indiana's two two-way players.

After going undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft, Mitrou-Long has spent the last two seasons with the Utah Jazz and their G-League affiliate Salt Lake City Stars.

In July, he signed on to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers Summer League team. After a decent showing at summer league, Mitrou-Long now finds himself on a Pacers roster that might need his services with Victor Oladipo set to miss the start of the season due to injury.

Malcolm Brogdon, Aaron Holiday, T.J. McConnell and Jeremy Lamb will have to try and replace Oladipo's production by committee. Mitrou-Long is a good insurance plan to have to sure up Indiana's backcourt.

Mitrou-Long was also named among the 29 players that were invited to participate in the Senior Men's National Team training camp which is set to begin on August 4th in Toronto. Whether or not this new deal will impact his attendance at the camp remains to be seen.

The 25-year-old Mitrou-Long, averaged 18.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists shooting 44% from the field with the Stars this past season.
