Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana Pacers acquired forward/center Luis Scola from the Phoenix Suns on Saturday in exchange for forward Gerald Green, center Miles Plumlee and a future first-round draft pick.

Scola averaged 12.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 82 games (67 starts) last season, his first with the Suns after spending five seasons in Houston.

"I'm very, very excited to play for the Pacers," said Scola. "They are one of the top three teams in the NBA with a good shot to win a championship. I think it's a great team and this is a great opportunity. I can't wait."

The 33-year-old Argentine has career averages of 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest over 468 games (410 starts) with Houston and Phoenix.

Green was signed by the Pacers as a free agent in 2012 and played in 60 games while averaging 7.0 points per contest with a single-game high of 34.

Plumlee was selected 26th overall by the Pacers in 2012 and averaged 0.9 points and 1.9 rebounds while appearing in 14 games last season.
