Then, there's the prospect of George's return, after the All-Star forward finished a full practice Thursday and continued to maintain that he's aiming for a mid-March return. "We're approaching it like we're not gonna get Paul back," coach Frank Vogel said. "And we've got to become as good a team as possible without Paul George. And if we're able to get him back, then it should give us a huge boost, obviously. But we're approaching it like he's not coming back." Bleacher Report

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.
