Paul George said on Wednesday that he would "love to" finish his career with the Pacers, adding that he expects to remain in Indiana through the trade deadline.
"I'm committed here," George said. "Myself and the front office, we've had great talks." Indiana's resident All-Star also said that he was "focused on turning around this team in the second half." The Pacers hold the No. 6 seed in the East, but they went into the All-Star break with a 4-6 record in their past 10 games. PG's owners shouldn't make any preemptive moves based on vague trade chatter. Feb 22 - 11:01 PM

There have been no "substantial talks" between the Celtics and Pacers on Paul George, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe.

The earlier report from The Vertical said the Pacers are looking at George's value in the trade market. In other words, George wants to stay in Indiana, but the Pacers haven't quite put enough pieces around him on the current roster. He could have interest in joining the Lakers in two seasons, but PG-13 has maintained that winning is his top priority. Additionally, the PG-13 reports could lower the price on Jimmy Butler now with two stars possibly being on selling teams.

The Pacers are reportedly gauging the trade market for Paul George.

The Pacers could go in one of two directions at the deadline, bring in talent to appease PG-13, or send him away and queue a rebuild centered around Myles Turner. George will likely opt-out of his contract following the 2017-18 season, making him an unrestricted free agent in 2018, so teams may be reluctant to make a deal for him without a promise that he'll re-sign at the new location. For what it's worth, George has said he'd be interested in re-signing with the Pacers as a free agent or going back to his hometown of Los Angeles (with the Lakers), so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

The Pacers continue to reject any calls about Paul George, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Per Lowe, Indiana is banking on the new CBA increasing their odds to retain PG13. George is under contract for at least one more season after this. Furthermore, the Pacers will be able to pay him far more than any other team even if he doesn't sign an extension and ultimately becomes an unrestricted free agent in July of 2018.

The Pacers have made their first-round pick available to help Paul George, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

This is nothing new after they traded their first-round pick last year to get Thaddeus Young. According to the report, the Pacers are hoping that pick would translate to the addition of either an established wing or established frontline player. As we saw last week, the Pacers really need some depth at power forward while Glenn Robinson III isn't exactly a strong starter. This shouldn't affect George, Myles Turner or Jeff Teague, assuming the Pacers don't make a massive deal.

Paul George made 6-of-19 from the field for 17 points during a 111-98 loss to the Wizards on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Coach Nate McMillan left George in a little longer than usual in the third, but it still wasn't enough to now put the Pacers on a six-game losing streak. George has been particularly bad in those last four, making just 34.4 percent from the field in those losses. A big reason why is he's made just three shots at the rim and went just 4-of-22 on his mid-range shots -- that's usually the main reason why he slumps. He'll head to his fourth All-Star Game and look to get it going again after that.
Feb 16 - 9:46 PM

Paul George went ice cold after a strong start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Cavs with 13 points on 4-of-19 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists and no defensive stats in 36 minutes.

George recently expressed his frustration with the Pacers' struggles. "We see what works for us and then we go away from it," George said. "It's very frustrating, especially losing to Eastern [Conference] teams, where these games are going to come down to late March, early April, where we're playing desperate basketball trying to make the playoffs." Indiana is riding a five-game losing streak, but they have one more chance to turn things around in Thursday's pre-break finale.

Paul George scored 13 points before fouling out of Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

He had a tough time guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo, but then again, who wouldn't? George still logged 38 minutes and shot 4-of-11 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line, adding eight boards, three assists, two triples and five turnovers. Things won't get any easier for George on Monday vs. the Spurs as he should see a lot of Kawhi Leonard -- The Spurs allow the second fewest fantasy points to opposing small forwards.
Feb 11 - 11:07 PM

Paul George scored 31 points with four boards, two assists, one block and two triples in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

He finished 12-of-23 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line in 36 minutes. PG-13 is shooting a combined 12-of-17 from the line over his last four games, but he's still third in the NBA in FT percentage, shooting 91.1 percent on the season. He's scored 21+ points in five straight games, but should see a lot of Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday vs. the Bucks.
Feb 11 - 12:54 AM

Paul George hit just 7-of-20 shots and 2-of-9 3-pointers on his way to 21 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals in Monday's 93-90 win over the Thunder.

George hit an 18-footer late and the Thunder never scored again, allowing the Pacers to get a tough win after being down 11 at halftime. The Pacers have now won seven straight games and this was an especially impressive win given that George, Myles Turner and Jeff Teague didn't do anything particularly special tonight.
Feb 6 - 10:08 PM

Paul George scored 24 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer during a 106-97 win over the Nets on Friday.

He had massive usage in the first half with 15 points, making 6-of-15 from the field. Additionally, his point guard Jeff Teague was impressive with 24 points, three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. These two guys are red hot and seem to be hitting value more often than not. They get the Pistons on Saturday and could be getting some added shots with Thad Young (wrist) possibly banged up. The Pacers have also won five straight.
Feb 3 - 11:57 PM

Paul George cooled off vs. the Magic on Wednesday, going 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with seven rebounds, three assists and five turnovers in 33 minutes.

George had scored at least 30 points in four straight games, which Jeff Teague attributed to him finally getting over an early-season ankle injury, and his owners have nothing to worry about here. After knocking down one 3-pointer tonight, PG needs only three more to reach 800 in his NBA career.

Paul George said his goal is to get to the free throw line 10 times per game.

"I’m real comfortable. That’s the first shot I learned," George said. "I feel good every time going to the free throw line. As they used to say, it’s like being at home. That’s how you have to visualize being at the free throw line." This is music to his fantasy owners' ears, as George is shooting an NBA-best 92.6 percent from the line this season. He's currently averaging 5.4 FTAs per game, but that number is on the rise and he was able to connect on a career-high 16 free throws on 17 attempts in the win over the Kings on Friday. The All-Star forward is trending up and has scored 31+ points in four straight games.

Paul George made 13-of-23 field goals to finish Sunday's game with 33 points, three 3-pointers, nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

PG-13 has been soaring lately, averaging 32.3 points in the Pacers' past four games. Part of his success is due to increased free throw attempts, which is by design. "[A free throw] is the first shot I learned," George said. "I’ve always tried to attack and get to the rim, and put the pressure on officials to make calls, and finish through contact. I’m getting calls now so it’s been good." George also had a highlight-reel dunk over Clint Capela, which you can watch via the link below.
Jan 29 - 8:52 PM

Paul George scored 33 points in an overtime win over the Kings on Friday, adding four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 45 minutes.

He was in a slight slump earlier this month, but now he's completely out of it with three consecutive games over 30 points. George also turned in a career-high 16 makes from the line during this win, which was a big reason why he went into one of those slumps. He actually leads the NBA in free throw percentage this year, so PG getting to the line more is great news.
