INDIANAPOLIS – No buying. No selling.

The Indiana Pacers (30-25) were quiet at this year’s NBA trade deadline.

Thursday’s afternoon deadline passed with Kevin Pritchard and the Pacers electing not to make any move.

A quiet trade deadline should not come as a surprise to fans.

The Pacers were not expected to make a move this week, having greatly exceeded pre-season expectations through 55 games.

Adding shooting around All-Star guard Victor Oladipo remains a goal for the franchise moving forward.

Indiana is currently slotted in the 6th position of the Eastern Conference. The standings have the 3rd to 9th spot separated by just 4 games in the loss column, with teams having around 25-to-30 games left this season.

The Pacers have 3 games left until next weekend’s All-Star break.

As the Pacers (33-25) return from the All-Star break later this week, they do so as a team destined for a surprise playoff spot.
