Paul George Frustrated Pacers Didn't Loop Him In On Trade Talks
The Indiana Pacers took trade talks with Paul George down to the wire ahead of the deadline but elected to keep him. The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets were engaged with the Pacers on talks for George.
George addressed the media shortly after the deadline passed and expressed his frustrations that he wasn't better briefed by the Pacers on the talks. "I kind of was on the ropes just like you guys on what was about to happen. It was kind of a dark moment of uncertainty. That was the frustrating part. You want me to be your guy here, I thought I'd be in the loop a little more than that." According to various reports, George would like to re-sign with the Pacers if they can compete for a title, or sign outright with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018.
After the team’s practice Wednesday, George said he was focused on leading the Pacers after an inconsistent season through 57 games. “I’m committed here,” George said then. “Myself and the front office, we’ve had great talks. I’ve got a job to do and I’m trying to turn a season around, trying to get us playing better. That’s where my mind is. It’s easy to block out everything else. I can’t allow that to weigh on me. This is what’s important right now.”
