Paul George who established himself as a star in the NBA this past season would become a free agent at the end of next season and many were speculating he would go home to LA and play for the Lakers but you can end that talk now. George wants to stay in Indiana and is ready to focus strictly on basketball, George will be signing a long term extension with the Pacers before the season begins:

Report via Indy Star:

“(A long-term contract) is going to get done,” George told The Indianapolis Star. “There will be a deal signed and sealed on the table before the season. We’re (George and Pacers management) on the same page.”

“No,” George said when asked if there was any chance he would leave the Pacers. “Honestly, I love it here. I want to be here. It’s a great place. There are no distractions. I can stay focused. It’s all about basketball here. I can stay focused and do my job.”

You gotta love this guy, he is one of the best small forwards in the NBA and is only getting better. Paul George is a superstar and he will be getting PAYED soon, but the fact that he is keeping it old school, not worrying about the bright lights by playing in a small market like Indiana and focusing on winning with a team that doesn’t have too many superstars says a lot about the guy.

The Pacers will be one of the best teams in the East for years to come now that George has committed!
