The Indiana Pacers are looking to move one of their high-priced veterans, league sources say, in order to create salary-cap room to pursue Dragic, should he be available this summer. Power forward David West and point guard George Hill have been mentioned as available, and although center Roy Hibbert has not, the Pacers' interest in Dragic is believed to be strong enough that they'd move anyone other than Paul George to create the necessary cap space to get him.

George said he has “no exact timetable” for a return, but has targeted March 1 as a day to begin practicing 100 percent, with a goal of playing in his first game in mid-March. His comments inspired a quick press release from the Pacers, stating George's return will be determined by the team's medical staff. Pacers coach Frank Vogel, wherever he was, probably executed a 360-degree eye roll when he heard George's latest comments. Vogel has consistently tried to dampen expectations of a return, perhaps in part because he's the one who'll have to answer the daily questions about it as the date approaches. Last week, after team president Larry Bird had thrown out the possibility of a March return and George had cautiously backed that notion, Vogel said he did not expect George to play this season.

"March 1 isn't when I wanted to play my first game, but when I wanted to be full-out practicing, doing up-and-down full court without any restrictions or limitations," George told Yahoo Sports at an event for New Era. "From there on, it's seeing how far I can progress to where I play my first game. My hope is it's an opponent where I feel comfortable coming back to where there isn't too much pressure to perform, where I can ease my way back in. But I want to say around mid-March, I could probably come back around that time." Yahoo! Sports

On August 1, 2014, George suffered a traumatic leg injury on live television playing for Team USA during a scrimmage. The game was canceled from that point, and Paul's basketball career has been on pause as he recovers from surgery and rehabs to get back into basketball shape. Bleacher Report has been filming George over the last few months and will be creating a multipart video series about his return to the NBA. The Road Back: Part One is the first time George has gone in-depth about the injury, as well as his surgery and rehab. We get his perspective, along with that of his family, who was there during the distressing injury in Las Vegas. Bleacher Report

Another step in his recovery: Paul George dunks. Yes, that’s Paul George, some five months after his awful accident, dunking a basketball. George is 6-9, and blessed with superior hops to pair with his long arms, but one shouldn’t slough this off. This is still significant. Yahoo! Sports
