Hours before the Oklahoma City Thunder pulled off a surprise trade to acquire Paul George from the Indiana Pacers on June 30, the Cleveland Cavaliers thought they had a done deal in place to nab the four-time All-Star.

Nearly a month later, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert still doesn’t seem to be over it.

“I will say that Indiana could’ve done better than it did,” Gilbert said Wednesday, when asked about the failed trade during new Cavs general manager Koby Altman’s introductory news conference.

The Cavs, Pacers and Denver Nuggets had a conference call that afternoon. The Cavs believed they had a tentative agreement on a deal that would have sent George to Cleveland, Kevin Love to Denver and Gary Harris and other pieces to Indiana. The Pacers, however, dispute there was ever an agreement, sources told ESPN.
