The Indiana Pacers have declined the fourth-year option on forward Solomon Hill, league sources told Yahoo Sports, making the 2013 first-round pick a free agent in July.

Hill had a team option worth $2.3 million on the final year of his rookie contract.

The Pacers selected Hill with the 23rd overall selection in the 2013 NBA draft out of Arizona, where he averaged 13.4 points and 5.3 rebounds as a senior.

Hill emerged as a full-time starter for the Pacers last season, averaging 8.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 29 minutes per game.

The Pacers restructured their roster in the offseason, re-signing Rodney Stuckey, drafting Myles Turner and Joe Young, and acquiring Monta Ellis and Chase Budinger.
