If you think the never-ending rumors on NBA trade deadline day are confusing as a fan, imagine what it’s like to be one of the players whose name keeps coming up.
No name was brought up more Thursday than Paul George. The Indiana Pacers ultimately kept their superstar forward, but they reportedly were involved in trade talks, including with the Boston Celtics.
So how did George feel about all the rumors?
Yikes. That doesn’t sound like an ideal situation in Indiana.
George can opt out of his contract after next season, which he almost certainly will do, and there have been multiple rumors about him wanting to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. He addressed that, too, Thursday.
