Edmond Sumner was drafted in the second round with the 52nd overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2017 NBA Draft. He was then quickly dealt to the Indiana Pacers for cash considerations. The Pacers eventually signed Sumner to a two-way contract. Knee issues delayed Sumner's G League debut with the Fort Wayne until late January. On Jan. 19, Sumner received 12 minutes of run and scored nine points during his first game for the Mad Ants. Sumner played in 14 games for Fort Wayne, with seven starts. He averaged 7.2 points, 2.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals per G League contest. He scored a career-high 17 points twice with the Mad Ants, including a 17-point, six-rebound, three-steal effort during a Mar. 9 win over the 87ers. Sumner made his NBA debut during the last day of the Pacers' regular season. On Apr. 10, Sumner received just over two minutes of floor time and scored two points during a loss to Charlotte. Sumner was not part of Indiana's playoff roster.2018
