The Indiana Pacers and Paul George are discussing a long-term contract extension.

“We’re talking now” George said. “It’s still in the rough draft form. It’s a long summer and we’re not rushing it. I think we’re both on the same page as far as myself and the Pacers. … I’m just focusing on getting better and making sure whatever deal that we do come up with that I’m ready for it.”

George would like to sign an extension before the regular season begins Oct. 31.
