Back in Indiana, where he played in college, Oladipo has flourished, averaging a career-high 24.5 points per game. He is coming off a career-best 47-point game as the Pacers sit a surprising 16-11 heading into Wednesday’s game against the Thunder, who are 12-14 (7 p.m. ET on ESPN). “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.”

When the Pacers traded Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis, many suggested they had been swindled. George was a superstar player. Oladipo is a fifth-year veteran on an expensive contract who still was known more for his athleticism than his output. How can he possibly be worth what Indiana gave away? “I think I’ve improved a little bit everywhere,” Oladipo said. “My mindset especially I think has improved a lot. Getting comfortable with my teammates. Getting comfortable with the system we’re running here. Just taking it one day at a time.”
Even though Domantas Sabonis has played well when starting at center, Indiana Pacers coach Nate McMillan currently has no plans to move Myles Turner or Thaddeus Young to the bench. “We are not at that point where we want to experiment,” McMillan told Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan. “Thaddeus is our starting 4, and Sabonis is coming off the bench for us.”
