Pacers unhappy with offers from Lakers, Cavs and Rockets — Paul George trade

The Pacers could try and make a deal with the Lakers in order to get something in return, but with Los Angeles not in need of negotiating should the reports of George's intentions be true, a trade may not be possible.

Whether this is a tactic by Kevin Pritchard to create pressure on the Los Angeles Lakers or any other team is hard to say, but real or not, it gives the impression there is still a market of some sort for Indiana.

But why not the Washington Wizards?

Do the Cavaliers have a shot at getting Paul George? It is also said that he is now considering heading to Los Angeles to join the Los Angeles Lakers Lakers next season.

It's just that now doesn't seem like the time for them to rush a decision like this. The Rockets would be renting George and hoping his time in Houston would convince him to re-sign following the season. He revealed that he would prefer to sign up and play with the Los Angeles Lakers.

There are two options to consider. Everyone around the league saw how the Knicks' trade for Carmelo Anthony drained the team of their once plush war chest of future assets. Kelly Oubre Jr.is a promising young piece, who will be a cheap rotation guy for the next three years. They are loaded with draft picks with three first-round draft picks in 2018 and as many as four in 2019. Miami doesn't have many draft picks to offer IN, as the Heat don't own both of their picks IN a draft until 2022. They also already have a starting center in Myles Turner, and though they could player together at times given Turner's ability to space the floor, Gortat isn't a ideal fit. This led the new Pacers front office, led by Kevin Pritchard, to engage teams on offers "for a rental" since George has only a year left on his contract. It will all make for an interesting couple of hours, not counting other potential big-time deals, including talks of Paul George and Jimmy Butler moving and shifting the balance of power to teams who could challenge the Golden State Warriors. LeBron is also a free agent in 2018, but Akron is his home. The longer IN waits, the more George's trade value declines and the worse the return they'll get for him. The Pacers want LA's No. 2 pick, but the Lakers have been adamant about their desire to keep and use that pick. Cleveland is confident its championship culture and overall atmosphere could sway George to want to stay after playing out the 2017-18 season on the final year of his deal.
