Pacers Preseason: Rodney Stuckey knows how to adjust to a new offense

The Pacers new combo guard has been through his fair share of change during his seven-year career in Detroit.

Changes was the only constant for Rodney Stuckey while playing for the Detroit Pistons. So heading into camp with the Indiana Pacers, the combo guard has no concerns about picking up the offense his new team runs.

"There were a lot of offensive schemes I ran in Detroit," Stuckey said when asked about any similarities in offense. "I had six coaches in seven year, so we did a lot of different things there."

Stuckey did admit the scheme with the Pacers will be a little different but he sounded confident that he'd be comfortable with everything as camp practices pile up. Regardless of any differences in scheme, Frank Vogel will surely want Stuckey to keep pushing the ball in the paint and give the Pacers an aggressive offensive option in both transition and the half court.

From Flip Saunders to Michael Curry to John Kuester to Lawrence Frank to Maurice Cheeks to John Loyer, Stuckey has likely seen several flavors of most half court sets in the league. Now on a one-year contract with the Pacers, and his seventh coach in eight years, both the team and player hope they can find success together and keep Stuckey from starting over yet again.
