While Paul George feels closure over his tenure with the Indiana Pacers, he does feel a sense of regret over how it ended.
"I think both sides -- myself and the front office -- would definitely like to have handled things better," George said. "I for sure will take ownership on that. But I have no regrets on the outcome."
George declined to say specifically what those regrets are. "I know what I would've changed," he said, "but I'll keep that to myself."
The Pacers traded George to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Oladipo has become an All-Star candidate with the Pacers.
"It's more so of Indiana doing well -- where they're at now, that was closure for me," George said. "At the end of the day, when we reached out to the front office to tell them our plans, our future plans, it was to help them along the way, and it was bad at first, so to speak, that they thought with this trade it wasn't gonna pan out. But it obviously did.
"They got two great young pieces, so that was good for me to see that this franchise changed the locker room and [is] going in the right direction."
