Indiana Pacers forward Paul George (13) points during a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
As of this moment, there’s nothing serious about the talks.
The people requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussions.
George told reporters on Thursday at his celebrity softball game in Indianapolis that “I’m under contract as a Pacer. That’s all that needs to really be known. I’m here. I’m a Pacer. Again, what I’ve been dealing with is stories. You guys talking or teams talking. I’m a Pacer. There’s no way around that. This is my team, my group and this is where I’m at.”
