#Indiana Pacers star #Paul George won't be changing clubs, even though his name was placed in the middle of rumors these past days. George was linked with a couple of NBA teams, but nothing really happened during the 2017 NBA trade deadline related to the Indiana small forward. The 26-year-old will be a Pacer at least for a couple of more months when the time comes for the NBA offseason. He will have to roll with his current team.

''I’m committed here,'' George said after Wednesday's practice, as quoted by The Indianapolis Star: IndyStar. ''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. Blocking out everything else is easy. I can’t allow that to weigh on me. This is what’s important right now.''

The Paul George NBA trade deadline drama.

Hard to say that Paul George will ever forget this year's NBA trade deadline. It wasn't an easy one for George definitely, and luckily for the player - it is in the past. Anything could have been read out there related to George.

On Wednesday, Sam Amick of USA Today Sports reported that George is open to staying in Indiana - if they can contend for a title. Also, that reportedly led to Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird being trying to improve the team's roster. Never in the past did Indiana make it all the way, and George's dream is to deliver the first one to the city.

Paul George is going nowhere, at least for now

The Los Angeles Lakers had an interested in George. To make it even more interesting, George is reportedly open to wearing a Lakers jersey one day. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, if Indiana fails to create a powerful roster - George could very well end up in L.A.

in 2018 when his contract with Indiana expires. ''Teams mulling Paul George trade apprehensive knowing he wants to win with Pacers, Plan B is Lakers. He won't commit long term outside those two,'' wrote Haynes on Twitter.

The Boston Celtics were eyeing to land George as well. Just as the Lakers, they fell short.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Boston was willing to include their first-round of this year's NBA draft from the Brooklyn Nets, which will likely end up at number one in the draft. However, Indiana and Boston never reached an agreement.

And, the Denver Nuggets tried to sneak in and make a splash. Marc Stein of ESPN wrote on Twitter that sources told him and Chris Haynes that Denver made a 'monster' offer to Indiana. Nothing happened there as well.
