Developing: Pacers' Paul George addresses paternity reports
Staff report 11:40 a.m. EST February 7, 2014
Indiana Pacers all-star Paul George addressed reports that he's the father of a child from a relationship with a woman from Miami.
"If and when there is any legal confirmation I'm the father, I embrace it. I step up to it," George told reporters this morning at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
George, however, denied to TMZ Sports reports that he offered the woman, who is pregnant, $1 million to abort the child.
George answered two questions about the situation and asked reporters "to respect my privacy."
Lance Stephenson is out for tonight's game against Portland with a back injury. Newly signed free agent Andrew Bynum joined the team and spoke with the media as well.
