The Indiana Pacers requested waivers Saturday on forward Chase Budinger.

The team reached a buyout agreement with Budinger that was finalized Friday night, the Indianapolis Star reported.

Acquired from Minnesota in a trade last July, Budinger played in 49 games (starting two) with the Pacers, averaging 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-7, 209-pound Budinger has seven seasons of NBA experience. He was originally drafted by Detroit in the second round (44th overall) of the 2009 NBA draft.

Free agent guard Ty Lawson is expected to join the Pacers this weekend, according to Yahoo Sports. Lawson was bought out by the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.
