Paul George Cavs Rumors Return With Potential Three-Team Deal

Share

The Lakers showed plenty of interest in trading for the Indiana Pacers' Paul George leading up to last Thursday's National Basketball Association draft.

The Lakers may not be willing to offer a competitive price for his services next year and beyond, though- especially since the team kept him on the bench as a healthy scratch for the season's final month as it tanked. Denver is looking for a player of Love's caliber to play alongside Jokic and Murray, so it doesn't make sense for them to make this deal.

Clevelanders can take solace in knowing the Cavs are still engaged in trade talks for George, who would help the Cavaliers solve some matchup problems against the Golden State Warriors. Sources told ESPN that a trade was being discussed ahead of this past Thursday's NBA Draft.

The Lakers, Houston Rockets, Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs reportedly are among the teams that also pursued George trades aggressively on draft night. We're not going to make a bad deal.

Both of these All-Star forwards announced their decisions to opt out of player options in their contracts and test out free agency, which can begin as soon as early July. The Cavaliers are devoid of the kind of young players and future picks that IN might want IN return for George, and George has never mentioned the Cavaliers as an intriguing destination. George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists in his seventh season for the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers selected George with the 10th overall pick in the 2010 Draft. Well, maybe not. Whether he's traded as a rental, or he stays for the season in IN, here is what COULD happen if LA doesn't make a move on Paul George quickly.
