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.

On Sunday, some 300,000 sets of eyes will be on Indy 500 pace car driver Victor Oladipo as he leads the field of 33 around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The accolades continue to pour in for Victor Oladipo. On Thursday, Oladipo was named to the All-NBA Third Team.
