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.
