Paul George Not Ready To Think About Future

Paul George Not Ready To Think About Future

After getting swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, the Indiana Pacers might be on the verge of a major rebuild.

"It's real frustrating to continue on losing to the same team or the same person", George said.

Would the Pacers have won the series if the travel were called?

Visit Indy's Chris Gahl said the Pacers and city leaders have been doing the legwork on the bid for two years. "If that's what he wants, we'll try to do our best to get it for him".

"We'll see what moves the team makes and how it stacks up going forward", George said, according to the Associated Press.

The DPE will allow veterans entering their eighth or ninth seasons who have been with their original team their entire career, or with a team that traded for them during their rookie contract, to be become eligible for a considerably larger deal to stay with that team.

No sooner than when George had toweled off and got dressed was he was hit with questions about his team and his future as a Pacer-a subject he wouldn't really address with any certainty or confidence. IN lost 106-102 in Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the season for the Pacers ends with them being swept in the first round.

BIRD: For now, I think I want to focus on what you think went wrong this season and how we can do better.


Vaughn says it also presents an extraordinary opportunity to showcase Indianapolis, with more than 3,000 media members from around the globe expected to be credentialed for the game.

Bird made it clear last summer after acquiring Teague that the Pacers were trying to sign him to a contract extension.

Point guard Jeff Teague is a pending free agent.

He has laid the foundations through the last two months of the 2017 season, and has built on a growing playoff resume, and now the only thing stopping Paul George from dominating the league as he moves into his prime years is himself.

Still, the acknowledgement from the National Basketball Association does nothing to comfort the Pacers or their fans.

IN may be forced to play the same game of dice next summer and hope George doesn't leave in unrestricted free agency a year from now.

George's competition is stiff: LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jimmy Butler, and Gordon Hayward. Larry Bird wanted more than just the potential No. 1 pick in this year's draft from the Celtics at this past trade deadline. However, when looking at Paul George's future, it seems a lot like he's alluding to leaving the Indiana Pacers in free agency.
