Victor Oladipo said he is committed to the Pacers for the upcoming season.
J. Michael of the Indy Star reported that Oladipo was asking opposing teams if he join them last season which led to some animosity among teammates, but Oladipo refuted that report. "I know there have been people saying that I have asked players to trade for me," Oladipo said. "That's just not true, period. I love my teammates, I cherish the state of Indiana and I'm focused on leading this franchise to a title." He added that he's excited to play under new coach Nate Bjorkgren and that they have had positive dialogue in recent weeks. He's no longer focused on negotiating a contract extension this fall due to the limits of the CBA in relation to what Indiana can offer, so it sounds like he will hit free agency next summer.
