David West is heading into free agency with a ton of momentum after having an excellent post season and helping the Pacers get to the Eastern Conference Finals.
West will have a long line of potential suitors, buck if you listen to him speak, he doesn’t appear interested. During the post game press conference last night, West was asked about potentially leaving the Pacers, and according to Pro Basketball Talk, West can’t see himself playing anywhere else.
“That’s something I’ll sit down and discuss, but this is my group,” West said. “These are my guys. You know, I can’t see myself going anywhere else. We’re the second best team in the Eastern Conference, one of the top four teams in the league, in my estimation, based on this year.
“This group is a solid group,” he added. “Gives me as an individual the best chance to accomplish the goals that I have left in terms of my future, and that’s competing at this stage of the game every single year from here on out.”
