A text message I received after the shocking trade. The caller was Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George.
Tyrese Halliburton (Indiana) appeared on the Wozi Podcast on the 12th (Korean time) and revealed the text message she received from Paul George.
Halliburton joined Sacramento with the 12th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, showed great compatibility with the team, and stood out by being named to the All-Rookie First Team from his rookie days. In his sophomore season, he appeared as a starter in all 51 games and broke eggs, averaging 14.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 41.3% 3-point shooting.
Halliburton, who has repeatedly stated that he is happy in Sacramento, will be included in a surprise trade on February 9, 2022 and transferred. Sacramento traded to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Halliburton for All-Star big man Domantas Sabonis.
Halliburton reportedly shed tears after the trade broke out. His affection was so great. However, a text message came that made him feel better. 먹튀검증
“It’s natural to feel upset after being traded,” Halliburton said. Those close to me know how much I value relationships. When I joined Indiana, PG (Paul George) texted me. He told me that there are so many good people in Indiana and that he would get along well.” George is now with the Clippers, but he played for Indiana early in his NBA career.
Halliburton said, “That letter meant a lot to me. Thanks to George, he came to Indiana with an open mind. It is true that I was angry for a few days. But he was able to recover like me as quickly as possible,” he recalled.
It was tough at first, but looking back at this point, this trade is the best trade for Halliburton. Guaranteed blitz ball-handling opportunities, he is averaging 20.2 points and 10.2 assists, career highs this season.
Halliburton said, “I heard people talking about Victor Wembenyama tanking and the losing team. I didn’t expect our team to stay at the bottom even with players like Me, Miles (Turner) and Buddy (Heald). Before the season, I made a commitment to surprise people with Turner.” His promise is becoming a reality. Indiana, which was ranked at the bottom, is cruising to 7th in the East at the end of the first half.
