Paul George liked the moves the Indiana Pacers made this offseason.
"I think with the moves made, the front office made it an emphasis on getting back to that caliber of talent that placed us in the [Eastern] Conference finals and bringing that level of play back to this organization that we’ve fell short of the last couple of seasons," said George. "We made the playoffs last year, but the year before that we fell short. Since I’ve been here, the one thing that we’ve lacked was bench play. With the depth that we have now; it’s one thing to have depth, but we have guys that can play multiple positions and can do multiple things. This team is pretty deep and can be very good."
George was also asked about whether he takes comfort in how the Pacers have tried to stay competitive after missing the playoffs in 2015.
"It’s a luxury, really. The NBA season is very long. You don’t want to feel like you’re wasting years or you’re giving something that’s not going to go somewhere. I think that’s one of the worst things to go through in this league, so I’m thankful that they’re trying to keep this team and the organization competitive, in putting pieces around me to try and get us back in the playoffs and to try and take out LeBron and the Cavaliers.
